Sylvia Plath - Monodrama of Hsu Yen-ling


Sylvia Plath or the art of dying : famous for her marriage with poet Ted Hugues, with whom she had a relationship made both of competition and  betrayal, this American poet of the confessionalist movement succumbed to her world-weariness and despondency at age 30, in 1963, after numerous feverish nights during which she conversed with the ghosts from her past in an ultimate quest to find herself.

More than to a tribute, it is to a tragic ode that Taiwanese poet Chou Man-nung invites us here. Through her writing, her aesthetic choices and her interpretation, this show endowed with a pristine quality is one of the founding pieces of the young contemporary Taiwanese stage.
