Feel the Earth Move

The Theory of Relativity tells us: if Einstein can find a car moving at the speed of light, time will stand still, and space will cease.

In the warm, stuffy, sometimes noisy, sometimes hauntingly quiet Esplanade Basement Carpark, two men meet. One is Zhang Jun, the prince of Kunqu, possessing in him 600 years of Kun Opera history. The other is George Chan, a leading actor of Singapore musical theatre, trained in the centuries-old Western art form.

As they face each other, each with their own histories and cultures etched in their bodies, what do they say? What can’t they hold back?

A unique original work where East meets West through past and present, Einstein in the Carpark is Huayi’s first-ever site-specific theatre production and is the second instalment of Emergency Stairs’ Post Dramatic Theatre Series. Einstein in the Carpark is directed and conceptualised by Young Artist Award recipient Liu Xiaoyi, together with two award-winning artists, lighting artist Lim Woan Wen and sound artist Darren Ng.
