Ming Wong

"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.
