A man waiting for the leaves to fall is a digital performative narration that chronicles the pivotal events in a man's life. This 15 minutes digital production explores the relationship of the film medium within a new theatre paradigm where theatrical design takes centerstage as characters.
The Aesthetic Project focuses on the theatrical design language intersecting with screen medium to create a new experience of theatre, in the absence of dialogue and actors.
"I think the best way to explore the evolution of Theatre would be to go back to what we love about theatre - telling the story." Judee Tan, director.
Helmed by director Judee Tan, The Aesthetic Project presents its first digital production that examines themes surrounding broken and lost communication and the societal gaps caused by modern society's rapid evolution that force generations and social tribes apart.
No dialogue. No actors. How do we stage a narrative that is driven by theatrical design choices and the camera? We invite you to join us on this journey of creating a new expression of theatre.
A man waiting for the leaves to fall is supported by the National Arts Council as part of the #SGCultureAnywhere campaign.
