Toy Factory presents a contemporary adaptation of the epic Ming Dynasty opera that examines the thin line between living and dreaming.

“When existence in dream is more perceptible than reality, do you wake up or stay asleep?” This is the tempting enticement Toy Factory Productions dangles before audiences with its ambitious modern adaptation of a 16th century epic Kun Opera play by revered Chinese Ming Dynasty playwright Tang Xian Zu.

The company stages a theatrical examination of evocative masterpiece A Dream Under the Southern Bough, one that traces a discharged and disgraced naval officer Chun Yu Fen’s intoxicated dreamland escapades into a mighty Ant Kingdom, all while slumbering under an old sophora tree.

Bravely taking up the challenge of adapting the first five chapters of the full Kun Opera for the contemporary stage as a theatrical production, founder and award-winning director Goh Boon Teck has produced a beguiling, lyrical prelude to the enchanted passage of a pensive dream. Audiences are encouraged not to awaken, but to dream... 

This is part one of Toy Factory’s ambitious trilogy, with plans for the next two parts, Reverie and Existence, slated for the next couple of years.

A Dream Under the Southern Bough – The Beginning will keep viewers adrift from the concept of time, and question reality altogether.

TOY肥料厂改编明代戏曲作品,以当代戏剧演绎薄如蝉翼的梦境与现实。

“当你在梦中游走,感觉一切事物都是那么的美好,此时,你是醒来还是继续睡去?”

中国明代剧作家汤显祖16世纪所写的史诗剧《南柯记》,是TOY肥料厂又一雄心勃勃之作。导演吴文德将从原著中提取五场作为序幕演出,为观众打造一个引人入胜的旖旎前奏,与戏入梦。

《南柯一梦》总共将分为三个部分,“入梦”、“如梦”和“辱梦”。 在序幕演出后TOY将会完成三部曲的后两部创作,渐次精彩呈现男主人公淳于棼的二十年梦境与遐想人生。

TOY肥料厂大胆挑战古典文学作品之演绎,《南柯一梦》之“入梦”,让你在时光的廊道中漫游,思考着何为梦境何为现实······
