"I was interested in the idea of exploring
how one of the oldest performing art forms in the world can be used to
address notions of the ‘future’."
In Scenography for a Chinese Science Fiction Opera, Ming Wong explores future scenarios in a three-dimensional theatre stage set of painted backdrops showing the interior of a spaceship inspired by science fiction movies. Cantonese opera meets science fiction and film. During Other Futures, he is presenting a series of screens with news flashes, a cacophony of text, images and sounds that in fact is a collection of science fiction elements as a prelude to his future space operas.
