ONE ACCIDENT; TWO PARTIES: THREE VERSION
RPM is a dramatic musing on collision: what happens when lives, bodies and memories plow into one another. One high-speed motorcycle totals itself, taking an unsuspecting pedestrian with it while an incredulous passer-by witnesses the whole event.
RPM distends this point of impact into a series of tectonic vignettes; making this an intensely warped encounter with the uncontrollable conditions of velocity.
Conceived by Director Choy Ka Fai and Written by Robin Loon, RPM is a contemporary theatrical experience that flirts with what defines visual arts, dance and theatre. Featuring a unique collaboration with Osaka dance collective contact Gonzo, this installation performance of sound, lights and multimedia brings you an immersive experience of living at the edge of existence in our urban landscape.
