Design Statement

The piece “Zoo of Cards” is an allegorical comedy reflects many aspect of contemporary social phenomenon in Taiwan. “Tuan Tuan and Yuan Yuan “(Two pandas given from China) , “House of Cards”, and “The Tragedy of Julius Caesar” were the main three key topics the director first told the collaborators.
Before the content was developed, I first took out all the wings and borders in the theater and made the “theater” itself become a playground and set all actors and props on the stage to define the form of the performance, which also made the statement of “act”. Afterwards, I extracted the ironic elements in Taipei zoo such as fake scenery painting rooms, grass floor, animal garbage cans…etc. and made a 2D cable car flat cross the stage during the beginning and the middle of the play. To combine with projections, I designed a huge commercial wall with bamboo sticks, which we all can easily see in Taiwan.
As a collaborator of a devised piece, providing a flexible space and imaginative elements is the biggest challenge and most important job. In the end, after bow, all actors left the theater from the backstage door to the street in front of the audience concluded this piece –life is all about act, mass media, and politics.
