Homo Ludens Ensemble Lonely TWOgether Beijing Version



What actors do on stage is an epitome of daily living, as our life is nothing but an improvisation. Inspired by Anton Chekhov’s The Bear and Uncle Vanya, Lonely TWOgether Beijing Version explores the classical texts through improvisation and adaptation in the context of Beijing culture, discovering human connections between 19th-century Russia and people in today’s Asia. Homo Ludens Ensemble dug into The Bear’s adaptation potential and improvised based on the characters’ relationships and the events in Uncle Vanya following devisors’ modern interpretations of the classical texts.
