設計概念

是次展出的是一個三層高的1:15唐樓模型,其中一樓部分重現二零一八年六至七月於一棟唐樓進行的小型製作《Vismopheric Experiment: In Search of Utopia》。Vismopheric Experiment 的發起人是一班畢業於香港演藝學院的年輕劇場工作者。在畢業後的短暫工作經歷中,注意到香港劇場與各自理想之間的落差,因此希望藉此計劃探索劇場製作的新方向與模式。因此《In Search of Utopia》除了是製作名稱,也是計劃的原意。


《In Search of Utopia》改編自小說《1984》,觀眾自進場起,就進入被多部閉路電視攝錄的空間,一舉一動都即時直播於演區中央的電視機畫面上。在演出途中,透過隱藏的鏡頭,演員的演出亦會被放大、複製,播放於各電視機畫面。

Design Concept

Showcased is a 1:15 model of a three-storey “Tong Lau”, a kind of tenement building in Hong Kong, in which the self-funded black-box production “Vismopheric Experiment: In Search of Utopia” took place in June 2018. The performance was devised by a group of theatre enthusiasts graduating from the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts majoring set and design related subjects. Soon after graduation, they realised the conformity of traditional practices in the theatre industry. And in response to the constraint, the team initiated the project in search of a new way to create a theatrical piece. “In Search of Utopia” was not only the title of the play, but also implies the initial intention of their project.


“In Search of Utopia” was adapted from the novel “1984” by Geroge Orwell. From the very moment stepping into the theatrical space, the audience was kept under surveillance by a system of CCTVs. Every single action of the audience was live-streamed on a “television totem pole” in the centre of the theatre, visible to everyone in the space. The performers’ actions on stage were also magnified and duplicated on the televisions to wrap up the performance.
