Nine Years Theatre presents their latest work, Red Demon. An internationally acclaimed play by Japanese playwright Noda Hideki, Red Demon is a captivating and relatable masterpiece that explores the theme of xenophobia.
The play follows the story of an outsider, a red demon, who arrives on an island and encounters its insulated community. Believing that the demon has come to devour its inhabitants, the islanders live in fear. However, as three unlikely characters attempt to communicate with the demon and realise that they can understand him, despite the language barrier. While this is happening, the villagers march out ready to kill the demon.
As an exploration of the human psyche, the play aptly illustrates the situation faced by many modern societies in our globalised context. Especially relevant to various audiences in Singapore today, the play hits right at the heart of some of the deep issues faced by Singaporeans currently.
Red Demon is adapted and directed by Nelson Chia, a winner of the Best Director Award in the Life! Theatre Awards in 2014 and 2015. The play features Mia Chee, Hang Qian Chou, Tay Kong Hui and Timothy Wan, all members of the Nine Years Theatre Ensemble Project. Adapted for the local audience, the play is performed in Mandarin with English subtitles.
