Room 2048 (2048號房) — a dream machine for the Cantonese diaspora. In digital light and smoke, we pursue a history that is not ours. A living past, a dying future, and a stillborn present. We will lie. We will cheat. We will spend a thousand years here.
Room 2048 is a multi-media dance theatre work for three performers with live-generated electronic sound and projection. It was originally conceived as a companion piece/sequel to NINEEIGHT. Room 2048 was premiered from April 11th - 15th, 2017 at the Firehall Arts Centre.
