LOVE and DEATH
Love and Death is a new writing scheme to create an intriguing piece of collective work by theatre artists from five different countries.
Inspired by the writings of German writer and screenwriter Patrick Susskind, uprising Israeli director Alon Tiran invites three international-awarding playwrights from Britain, Israel, and China along with dramaturg Lisa Goldman to take forward this controversial debate of the eternal theme: Love and Death.
The play is jointly written, each playwright reflecting on their own social values and cultural background. Combining various elements - such as self-sacrifice, jealousy, hatred, and tradition - the play will explore contemporary encounters between Love and Death, and how they divide, as well as unite, people from different society and culture.
This project is co-produced with charity Theatre Alive!.
The final draft of the play has been presented at the Red Room at Bush Theatre. We also held a public discussion on 'Creative Process & Culture Clashes' at SOAS university. There were over 100 audience members attending the event.
