Closing the busy 2023 Season of Theatresauce’s 7 productions is Sisyphus No.9. Directed by Tung Jit Yang, Sisyphus No. 9 is a work inspired by two stories - the myth of Sisyphus, punished by the gods to eternally roll a boulder up a hill to only have it roll down once more for him to start all over again; and the story of Ludwig van Beethoven, at this juncture at near total deafness, composing, and eventually conducting his 9th Symphony in Vienna, Austria.
It explores the absurdity/meaning of life through repetitions and visceral movements, accompanied by live ambient music that clashes philosophy with reality and classical music with modern rock. Featuring multidisciplinary performing and fine artist Liew Chee Heai, accompanied with music and performance by Francoe, an ambient music duo made up of Coebar Abel and Ian Francis. The production is designed by Bryan Chang.
