The Ventriloquists Convention

Oct 18, 2018 - Oct 21, 2018
Venue:Experience Theater (No.21-1, Zhongshan S. Rd.)

The Ventriloquists Convention, directed by French-Austrian artist Gisèle Vienne and written by Dennis Cooper, is inspired by the global ventriloquists convention held in Kentucky, United States, every year. With puppets and ventriloquists behind the scene, the play aims to explore the subtle and sophisticated mental states of puppeteers in the plots intertwined with truth and fiction. The performance is built on the multilayer of conversations and dialogues among ventriloquists and their puppets as well as an unknown third voice. The unspoken subtexts are emphasized loudly, while ordinary gossips in daily lives turn out to be arguments burst out in extreme and crazy tones. Cynical black humor exposes the loneliness in everyone's heart hidden behind elaborate disguises. The music-like ventriloquism with multiple voices and tones leads audiences into the psychological labyrinths in their real minds.
