About

A traditional symbol of prosperity, fish has always enjoyed an exalted place in Chinese cuisine and culture. While fish has never been cheap, what if the price paid is higher than we thought? Inspired by Eating Chilli Crab in the Anthropocene, Extinction Feast is a humorous tale about the disjunct between our relationship with our favourite fish dishes, the price we are willing to pay, and all the annoying micro-decisions in-between. Assuming you have the luxury of choice, what would you do?

Experience it two ways:

Extinction Feast (In-venue): Combining performance, video and tiny hors d’oeuvres, we question if our voracious appetite for consumption can ever be sated.

Extinction Feast (Online): Combining interactive elements with live performance, this digital theatre production pokes fun at the age-old conundrum of what it means to Do Good in the age of consumption.

关于

在华人的美食与文化中,“鱼”是繁荣的传统象征,享有崇高的地位。但除了昂贵的价格,我们在吃鱼的时候还需要付出哪些代价呢?受到《 Eating Chilli Crab in the Anthropocene 》的 启 发 ,《鮽宴》以幽默风格带领观众探索我们和钟爱的鱼类菜肴脱节的关系、我们肯为此付出的代价,以及这当中所有琐琐碎碎的烦人选择。若你有条件做出选择,你会怎么做?

通过以下两种方式体验:

《鮽 宴》(现场):结合演出、影 片,以及开胃小菜,让我们对于“消费欲望是否真的能得到满足” 提出质疑。
《鮽 宴》(线上):结合互动元素以及即时演出,这部数码剧场制作诙谐地讨论在消费时代, “什么才算是做好事” 这一古老难题。
