Wild Seed Workshop and Performance

Sep 23, 2019


Para Site, 22/F, Wing Wah Industrial Building

After performing at Power Art Station, Shanghai, in 2018, and Dinghaiqiao Mutual-aid Society and Next Mixing, Shanghai, in 2019, Grass Stage is joining forces with Para Site to hold an open call for Wild Seed six participants in the theatre workshop and the performance, for four days of workshops and two days of performances alongside Grass Stage, exploring ways to express “youth”.

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.

Theatre or performing experience is not necessary, but the passion to explore and express is. Please apply before September 23 by sending some basic information and a little bit about yourself to application@para-site.art. We look forward to sprouting and growing together as Wild Seed.
