Immortalx (2018)

1 August 2018 – 12 September 2018 @ Practice Space, The Theatre Practice

Synopsis

It is tough to be a teenager
Especially when you are different from everyone else.
And having lived amongst humans for centuries,
These young deities begin to wonder:
In a world where men appear almighty,
Who needs gods anyway?

Directed by The Theatre Practice’s Artistic Director Kuo Jian Hong, Immortalx puts a modern twist on traditional Chinese mythology. A winning combination of action and comedy, this modern coming-of-age story follows the adventures of three teenage deities as they search for their place in a world where they don’t quite fit in.

Combining live theatre with multimedia projection, magical illusions and songs, this exciting production also features a dynamic theatre-in-the-round staging, placing audience in the heart of the action.
