Hong Kong Arts Festival New Play Selection 2013
香港藝術節新劇本選 2013

In a city that is constantly being demolished and rebuilt, in an urban village so poor that its Gini coefficient is off the charts, three lonely men with no house, no car and no women squeeze into a bedsit with no past and no future. From their debate of toilet philosophy begins an absurd and brilliant war in defence of the sperm; from ploys, tricks and surprises comes tearful laughter.

Commissioned and produced by the Hong Kong Arts Festival, Blast is the work of Hunan-born playwright Simon Wang, who examines the individual quest for the meaning of life, against a backdrop of cramped urban spaces.

一個正在不斷遷拆不斷重建的城市,一處堅尼系數超標的貧困城中村,三個孤獨的三無宅男,擠在一個沒有過去沒有明天的劏房,他們從廁所的哲學辯論開始,掀起一場荒謬絕倫的精子保衛戰,各出奇謀,情節出人意表。

香港藝術節委約及製作,新銳編劇王昊然,以冷諷角度,探討都市人如何於齷齪狹隘的生活空間,尋覓存在價值. .
