A photographer’s missing analog film leads her to the memories of a fire, a graveyard, and more questions about her identities…
All the hours Chu-yao shies away from socialising, she hides in her darkroom.
Déjà vu strikes her in the works of XX, a mysterious photographer. No one knows who he is, where he comes from or what he looks like. Digging through XX’s works, Chu-yao discovers she has been to all the places he went but they have never met, and she gets a strange feeling of familiarity about him.
Chu-yao then discovers that XX also shot Sou’s fire dance. Sou is a street artist who has been her subject too, as well as the lens through which she rationalises the world. Hoping to find out more about XX, Chu-yao rushes to find Sou, who is performing a fire dance on the beach, despite her fear of fire.
A play that makes no gender distinction
All the ordinary and extraordinary mundane and absurd
A premeditated escape to freedom
A search of the self
