Shakespeare’s Wild Sisters Group advances to Germany's FIND New Theater Art Festival to perform "Dear Life". Neue Dramatik invited "Shakespeare’s Wild Sisters Group" to perform the stage play "Dear Life".
From April 29th to 30th, two performances were staged at the Leining Square Theater. Adapted from a short story by Nobel Laureate Alice Ann Munro, "Dear Life" breaks down the barriers of language and culture, presenting an authentic Taiwanese style on stage. When she performed at the Festival d'Automne Paris in 2019, she was awarded by the director of the festival, Mary. Marie Collin praised "The story comes from Taiwan, and the writing and directing method is like making a movie, without any cultural barriers...", and it became the first Taiwanese drama to appear on the stage at the Paris Autumn Art Festival in 48 years.
"Dear Life" takes women as the main characters. The four 30-minute stories of "Tattoos", "Possession", "Pond" and "Memory" link the local life experience in Taoyuan, Taiwan. Director Wang Jiaming uses poems Think about each scene with a unique style, and leave enough blank space for the audience to imagine. What's interesting is that the four stories are connected to each other not through the plot, but through music, and the stage time and space are created with a music-themed construction.
