Design Statement

Attempts on Her Life, written by Martin Crimp, reveals fragmental information through several characters about another. One was named Anne, who never shows up in the play. But Anne's image doesn't become clearer in these descriptions, instead, it becomes more ambiguous.

Based on the concept of pop-up theatre, Shih-Lun sets 17 scenes into the different areas of Nanhai Gallery , including gallery, the meadow, the courtyard, and even toilets. He turns 17 scenes into live performance, installation art, projected images, recordings, and interactive games. Each audience gets a map before the show. They are free to walk through these scenes without specific order, to choose any parts that interest them more than once, or to skip scenes. His purpose is to make the audience into active participators of this show. Also, with the spirit of in-yer-face theatre, he wants to explore the idea of watching. We not only represent the story but also create a world where audiences are part of it and can build their own versions. It's his way to communicate: Anne could be anyone.


Shih-Lun Lin

Shih-Lun was graduated from TNUA, majored in set design. As a designer, he focuses on all the details, and what the essence of drama is, and how to make it into perfection? Realism and Symbolism are both his preferences. He uses these kind of styles to design for different performances, such as This Property is Condemned, A Memory of Two Mondays, The Clean House. They were the highlights of his works. He also combines classic realism with in- yer- face theatre, making the presentation as a modern and slick style, such as the works he made- Attempts on Her Life, Agamemnon, The Libation Bearers. His other creations include exhibition design, painting, props workshops, which with sophisticated handcraft. Recently, he works with The Party Theatre Group, Our Theatre, Yang's Ensemble for many times. They are renowned theatre groups in Taiwan. His excellent works have been traveled to several countries, such as Prague, China, and Singapore.
