Room 2048 [2017]

Room 2048 — a dream machine for the Cantonese diaspora. In digital light and smoke, we pursue a history that is not ours. A living past, a dying future, and a stillborn present. We will lie. We will cheat. We will spend a thousand years here.

Room 2048 is a multi-media dance theatre work for three performers with live-generated electronic sound and projection. It was originally conceived as a companion piece/sequel to NINEEIGHT and is currently in the second phase of development. The piece is scheduled for a premiere in April 2017 and a multi-city tour September - October 2017.

Performers: Michelle Lui, Milton Lim, Alex Tam

Choreographer: Natalie Tin Yin Gan
Sound Composition and Media Design: Remy Siu
Mentor: Lee Su-Feh

Room 2048 has been made possible due to a generous space residency provided by the Gateway Theatre, along with funding from Canada Council for the Arts and the BC Arts Council.
