Paranoid- Schizoid X It’s Just a Fiction [Not Mentioning Anything]
The two performances ask questions and invite audience to rethink the truth and the untruth in their society. Both performances explore perspectives of the artists from the two generations of Thailand’s physical and devised theatres.
1. B-Floor Theatre: Thailand’s forefront physical theatre group striving to raise social awareness through powerful body movements for over 23 years.
2. TU Theatre Group: a group of students from the Faculty of Fine and Applied Arts, Thammasat University who share the passion for devised theatre and thought-provoking issues.
Both shows are physical performances combining movements with elements including multimedia, motion graphic, sound design, installation and experiential performance with interactive participance from the audience.
B. Paranoid – Schizoid : by DUJDAO VADHANAPAKORN, B- Floor Theatre : an experiential performance that open up space for audience’s experiences and turn them into the essence of the show. The performance focuses on the parallelism and the collision of the truth that happen to people who are close to each other. She then compares this occurrence to a psychological state called paranoid – schizoid position. This mental state happens to a baby during the “split” period when its understanding of the world is split into two sides; wholly good and wholly bad, and it cannot comprehend that there might be a mix of good and bad in a person.
Dujdao is an artist/director with a background on dance movement psychotherapy. She has been using her background in psychotherapy to examine current situations in Thai society. Her work leads to questions and assumption that this mental state still exists in Thai society even with those who are way pass their baby stage. All of this are purely for arts, and does not intend for any medical research or facts.
