2022 NTT-TIFA M.O.V.E. Theatre Dear John


Black Box

As a tribute to American avant-garde composer John Cage, Dear John is an interdisciplinary collaborative project by three artists with different specialties. The collaborative team turns the space into a playful sound lab, revealing the process of sound-making and redefining the interpretative vocabulary as well as the physicality of sound in performing arts. After its premiere in 2013, the show has been staged at different art festivals home and abroad. The 2022 version of Dear John combines the space of NTT’s Black Box and Outdoor Theater. As the audience – both young and adults, are welcomed to freely roam between the two areas, this unique immersive theater experience also turns the audience into an indispensable yet unpredictable part of the work.

You bring us a night of strangeness and auditory adventure. Very serious and mysterious. Science and art and history and love in a big, dark wonderland. —The Barefoot Review

This was a completely engaging and thoroughly enjoyable performance. —Broadway World

Situated at the point where music, theatre, dance, and artistic installation all meet, Dear John is an exploratory and experimental piece of avant-gardism, presented essentially without conventional distance between performers and viewers, as a tribute to legendary musical figure John Cage. —Stage Whispers
