In 1915, Chen Duxiu wrote in A Letter to Youth: “Youth are as early spring, the morning sun, the sprouting of many flowers”. From the summer of 2017, young members of the theatre troupe Grass Stage engaged in a few months of research on issues facing youth. Different versions of Wild Seed are the results of the different phases of discussion–dramatised, and presented to an audience. As a collective effort by Grass Stage, the play gathers different perspectives, and recasts our understanding of the current generation.

The theatre troupe Grass Stage was founded in Shanghai in the spring of 2005. The troupe is made up of members from diverse academic and professional backgrounds, and the troupe’s plays are mostly collaborative efforts among members, and deal with fringe topics that nonetheless hold social significance. The troupe often rehearses and debates at different venues, offering their stage as gathering space for different groups of the public — a “mobile public space”, if you would.
