Mathias Woo Presents The The Architecture of The City Theatre Performance

Mathias Woo, the thinktank behind the displayed work Theatre Performance:The Architecture of the City by Mathias Woo explicates, The Architecture of the City poses a contrast between old and present-day Hong Kong. Inspired by Aldo Rossi’s book of the same title, director adopted the stage use of bamboo scaffolding, a commonly seen architectural element in Hong Kong, transforming the collective memory into an audio-visual experience. Through the interaction between the bamboo structure, images, music, stage and lighting, together with the use of recycled materials for the costumes design, the performance creates an experience of an alternative space and a reflection on the city as a live organism that keeps on changing..
