Design Statement

This performance is staged in an ancient theatre with over 100 years history. I strive to connect my design with the space by using fragmented pieces to build up a tilted stage, underlying the vulnerability within the family. The stage challenges the performers physicality through an atmosphere of cautiousness. While they live with cautious, they need to support each other in this broken family.

There is love, but also hatred in the family. Such dilemmas are expressed through the eight simple designed chairs to reflect the conflict in the family, as well as the underlining meaning of the "family". The performers used the chairs as symbolism of family building which could happen in a instant, or in order where the stage harmonizes with the theatrical presentation to enrich the theme of the story.


I love stage design, but there is different cultural backgrounds and different people that intrigued me. I believe stage design does not merely contribute to the design of space; but to explore the soul of theatre performance, the time within the performance, and humanity in order to relate to the presentation of space from different perspectives. "As a Designer, never be afraid to ask questions, but you should know how to answer it. Don't be afraid to create trouble but you should know how to solve it." I wish I can know this world better while I continue my adventure to answer these questions.
