An evening of four experimental theatre pieces
by Danny Yung (Hong Kong), Li Liuyi (China), Lawrence Lei (Macau) and Li Bao-chun (Taiwan)

One table. Two chairs. Four internationally acclaimed directors in search of Kuo Pao Kun.

Much-loved Singapore theatre doyen Kuo Pao Kun’s influence and passion was not confined to the island he called his home, but reached far beyond our shores, touching and inspiring artists and audiences from other countries. Now, his good friend Vivien Ku (Managing Director of Novel Hall, Taiwan and producer of this show) has invited four directors from afar to gather and remember him by exploring his most popular and accessible work, Lao Jiu 《老九》.

Danny Yung, Li Liuyi, Lawrence Lei and Li Bao-chun embark on their own searches of Kuo Pao Kun through Lao Jiu 《老九》 which tells the story of Lao Jiu (the ninth born), the only son of a family of girls who struggles between the pressure to fulfil his family’s hopes and aspirations for him and his own desire to chase his dreams.

In one evening, all four celebrated directors will present their own takes, bound by the concept of “one table, two chairs”.

Join them as they pay tribute to the spirit and legacy of Kuo Pao Kun.
