Event description
Arts Centre Melbourne, The University of Melbourne and UMSU’s Union House Theatre present Oedipus Schmoedipus by post & Hong Kong Repertory.

About this Event

A comic bloodbath about a fate that none of us can escape.

Oedipus Schmoedipus is a joyful, dark, irreverent, hilarious and confronting performance about death: real death, fake death, and death as portrayed in the world’s great theatre classics.

This irreverent work from provocative Australian collective post (Zoë Coombs Marr, Mish Grigor & Natalie Rose) piles up classic dramatic death scenes into an engaging spectacle of glee-ridden blood and gore. Starring Mish Grigor and Shelly Lauman, who resurrect again and again through multiple murders, suicides and accidents.

For Asia TOPA 2020, productions of the work in English and Cantonese (featuring ManMan Kwok and Man Sui Hing) are performed over two weeks. For each show’s mammoth bloodbath, a cast of 25 local volunteers is invited to join in the comic lament and slaughter.

Straddling live art, theatre and contemporary performance, Oedipus Schmoedipus has had audiences around the world in stitches and in tears. It’s a democratic theatrical extravaganza 2,500 years in the making.

English language production surtitled in Chinese. Cantonese language production surtitled in English.

Local volunteer call-outs begin in December 2019.

Recommended for ages 16+. Warning: the show features flashing strobing lights, fake guns, fake blood, violence, death and suicide scenes & coarse language.

血淋淋玩轉無法逃脫的終極命運

澳洲藝術團體 post (Mish Grigor, Zoë Coombs Marr 和 Natalie Rose) 共同創作的《伊狄帕斯·豬亦拍屍》,在台上互相廝殺,將經典戲劇「起死回生」,運用大量經典劇中關於死亡的台詞、情節和象徵意義串連成一個嶄新好玩的演出。

此劇英語版 (由 Mish Grigor 和 Shelly Lauman 領演) 粵語版 (由文瑞興和郭靜雯領演) 會分別在兩週內先後在2020年的亞太表演藝術三年展 (Asia TOPA)上演。

除兩位專業演員外,每場演出會有25名經公開招募的「素人」演出者參與台上滑稽的廝殺遊戲。

《伊狄帕斯・豬亦拍屍》糅合了現場藝術、劇場及當代藝術的元素。作品笑中有淚,巧妙地構作一場累積了2,500年的民主戲劇盛會。

本地「素人」演出者的公開招募將於2019年12月開始。

英語演出,附中文字幕。 粵語演出,附英文字幕。

適合16歲或以上人士觀看。 警告: 本劇含強光效果、假槍道具、假血、暴力場面、死亡和自殺情節及少量粗俗用語 。
