The Prophet

Audio Tracks 

Originally written by HUANG Hua-cheng, the script centres on the dialogue between a couple sitting in the audience of a play; the play itself is only hinted at with lighting and curtain movements. When this piece was first shown in 1965, director Richard Yao- chi CHEN reworked it by keeping the curtains closed and with the actors on stage. 51 years later, actors CHUANG Ling and LIU Ying- shang are invited back to the original site to recreate the play, at the time a pioneering effort in breaking through the confines of conventional theatre.
