'Sickroom #14' Physical Theatre

Finished Ended on Sun Nov 19, 2006
DDM Warehouse
750 Huaihai Xi Lu, near Hongqiao Lu


Sickroom? #14? What kind of the sickness? How did it come? Who the hell is the sick? Them or us? This group of people are taken as the unidentified sick. They live in the Sickroom #14. They are being observed, and observing the observers as well. Who on the earth belongs to this sickroom? This theatre work focuses on the individual psychological sickness in the daily life, and builds a microcosmic image at DDM Warehouse to re-form the individual existence, which is normally ignored. The performance guides the audience into their innermost being to make a diagnosis for themselves. Nov 18th & Nov 19th. 7:15pm 50rmb or 30rmb for students.

Booking Number: 3501 3212 (Ms. Chen) / 13381782612 (Mr. Zhang). 100 tickets for each show.

"Company Niao" is defined by the international media as a "post-modern dancing company". The previous work by this company "Tongue's Memory to the Home" just took the ZKB Award, the 1st prize of Zurich Theather Spektakel 2006 in Switzerland. As one of the very few groups in mainland China, which are exploring the possibilities of "Physical Theater", Company Niao's latest production "Sickroom #14", which will be staged at DDM Warehouse, is one other physical theater experimentation.
