THE (NEW) TRIAL|
"The (New) Trial," adapted from Peter Weiss’s same titled play, presents a surreal look at the life of Joseph K, an attorney in an international corporation that explores K’s obsessive idealism and his self-destructive methodology in helping others. Confined in his own docile body, K is manipulated as the public mask for the corporation to win the “war” current global market expansion competition, and eventually is abandoned by the corporation once the victory is obtained.
"The (New) Trial" attempts to deconstruct the docile nature of the self and the hierarchical power relations among the characters of the play, hoping to stimulate changes to the society. To manifest this essential concept, actors will explore power dynamics among different characters, and will break the fourth wall to share their real life experience of being an actor with monologues.
