Non Playable Character by Glenn Hudson - Definitives
This show touches on the term NPC - NON PLAYABLE CHARACTER - and how its meaning has entered and affected the real world. From gaming to politics to social media, using movement and musicality, this show explores its playful origins through to its twisted developments and similarities.
Cartography of Tears by Nefeli Kentoni
A Woman in a desert.
A deserted Woman.
The Woman begins to cry
Or maybe she never stopped.
"Cartography of Tears" is a surreal multidisciplinary performance exploring the profound interplay between emotion and perception through the allegorical journey of a pair of weeping eyes that - obstructed by their own tears - gradually lose their sight. It is an exploration of the power of tears to veil and unveil, obscure and illuminate, while observing the shared gaze between performer and audience.
About The Artist
Nefeli Kentoni (b.1998, Cyprus) is a director, writer and visual artist. The theatrical and cinematic form have been the platform in which she negotiates and experiments the gaps between language and image, the implicit exertions that sustain the performer-viewer relationship, and the performativity of space. Her characters exist in stylized, absurdist, and unstable worlds which defy the rules of logic and time.
Nefeli hopes to guide the audience’s gaze to the invisible, the absent, the [almost]insignificant.
She has presented her work in Prague Quadrennial, Tate Modern, Barbican Centre, The Place, Museu de les Ciéncies (Valencia), Buffer Fringe, NiMac, Cyprus Choreography Platform, and Images & Views of Alternative Cinema. Her short film “Fragility of Language” won the Screendance Short Film Competition at the 36th Leeds International Film Festival.
With recurring collaborators, they have created a common language of movement, aesthetic, and trust. Her work would not have been the same without them.

On The Other Side《彼岸》by Yee Kei Yuki Chung
On The Other Side《彼岸》explores the emotional impact on people who have experienced the death of others, imaginary death, and the imaginary contact between the dead and the living.
In Resolution 2024, we will be presenting the 6th stage of new development of On The Other Side《彼岸》, which brings on an added element and focus on resilience. This next stage walks through how we live through traumatic experience such as sorrow, grief, and anger, to then build resilience. After traumatic experiences, we can re-find and regain power to become a new stronger person. We hope this performance resonates not only with people who have found the strength to get up in their past, but also empower people who are still finding their strength.
About The Artist
The whole process of On The Other Side《彼岸》started in 2020 and had been through 5 stages of research and development: Trio R&D, First Solo, Ensemble, Second Solo, and Duet.
