Introduction

No intersections

What are the odds of a honey farmer dating a scientist? One could say the possibilities are at the same time immense, and nil. Or that’s for us to find out in Constellations, a cinematic theatrical smash brought by the Théâtre du Rêve Experimental, a Beijing-based company led by internationally acclaimed maverick director Wang Chong.

 

According to the multi-universe theory, we are all living in countless dimensions. Seeking to portray these different realities, Wang used a dozen cameras, two hamsters and a clock-shaped stage to project the way cosmologist Liu Mei and bee-keeper Du Lei would fare in parallel universes. In this provocative piece, the director sheds light on themes such as time and space, effortlessly alternating between humour and tragedy. Originally written and produced by British theatre’s enfant terrible Nick Payne, Constellations premiered in London in 2012 where it was distinguished as Best Play of the Year. Staged for the first time in Beijing, Wang’s work was soon shot to the international scene having been presented on stages like Groningen and New York.

 

Combining filmic language with the theatrical space, this flaming play constructs a dual dramatic view to illustrate, in beautiful, simple fashion, both the vastness of our universe and the dimension of human solitude.

 

 

 

 

 

**CCM will host a post-performance talk with Wang Chong, right after each show, where the director will share with the audience insights on his theatrical concepts.**
