The Spirits Play 《靈戲》

Inspired by "the Spirits Play", the script by Kuo Pao Kun, it is a production of music, dance and video art.

This is a rare collaboration between Germany, Japan, Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia, where involved artists are working together to create opportunities for collaboration and growth, this would also broaden awareness and understanding of each other’s culture, values and tradition.

The script is based on The Spirits Play by Kuo Pao Kun. A notable work in Singapore theatre, The Spirits Play acutely pieces together the intense agony, guilt and turmoil that occur as the price of war. It serves as a memorial towards death, and a reflection upon life.
