2000 - Under the Last Dust

Short Description
Artistic Director's Message

DUST is an exploratory piece of work. When we asked Jean what she would like to do for her 2000 slot, she said a piece of work that has no or little literary text. She would like to use non-literary devices to structure and "write" a piece. We were excited with the proposal. Then came the content—what should she like to explore and why employ the non-literary approach? [...]

Haresh and I watched rehearsals and had many hours of discussion with both Jean and Jing Hong. I learnt a few things from these discussions. How do we employ playwriting principles but use other mediums for inspiration and as vocabulary to "script" a work. In creating an open work, we are challenged to be even more precise when we craft the work.
