RPM: Revolution-Per-Minute


Come April, TheatreWorks/72-13 will be presenting RPM –Associate Director Choy Ka Fai’s new work for 2009, which also sees him collaborating with Japanese dance company, Contact Gonzo and director/performer, Li Xie from Singapore.

Revolution-Per-Minute -or RPM- is entirely based on the state of the human condition when involved in extreme shock. Together with writer Robin Loon, Choy displays this reaction through three protagonists: An accident involving a high-speed motorcycle and a pedestrian, witnessed by a passer-by. Contact Gonzo creates a form of contemporary dance where movements are derived from everyday actions. The performance will tie in with a sound and multimedia installation by Zulkifle Mahmod, making RPM a sensory piece of work. Expect a brilliant portrayal from Li Xie as she plays out the witness’ psychological trauma due to the accident.

23 to 25 April, 8pm (3pm matinee on 25 April) at TheatreWorks, 72-13 Mohamed Sultan Road. For ticket purchase ($15-$28), please call 6737 7213 or email to tworks@singnet.com.sg.
