Words of My Body II

13 January, 2018 — 14 January, 2018


Method Productions is proud to present Words of My Body (WOMB) II !




Words of My Body

Words engage, evoke and entertain. Haque Centre of Acting and Creativity (HCAC) is producing Words of My Body (WOMB) and invited Assistant Professor of Theatre and Dance, Giovanni Ortega to re-stage the play in their new theatre. WOMB is a devised theatrical piece that was presented as part of the Haque Center of Acting and Creativity’s summer season. The 2-week intensive included an international cast of performers (U.S., Europe, Asia, Australia) and was received with high praises in Singapore.

This coming January, he will assess their new environment and adapt the piece from a studio, to a two level performance space. The production quality will also be enhanced with new elements of scenic, costume and lighting design. In addition, a narrative that consists of a Cantonese family in Hong Kong will be incorporated into the storyline to expand on the complexity of bi-racial Asian identity. The workshop will continue to allow participants to deepen their understanding of the written word through the use of poetry, prose and playwriting. Furthermore, by exploring on the theme of Language performers will revise their own works using theatrical techniques such as Biomechanics, imagination activities, Improvisation, movement and character analysis. The re-staging of the play culminates in 3 performances to be held at the Haque Centre of Acting and Creativity in Singapore.

Words of My Body is part of the Body Series, a 3 year project that delves into the physical, emotional and mental state of different characters that intersect and interact with each other through language, movement and music. It also furthers my creative research entitled The Immigrant’s Diasporic Imagination, which is meant to internationally collaborate with artists and academics to engage, exchange ideas and experiences to create works that will nurture, inspire and empower the next generation.
