A theatrical work probing into the relationship between Nietzsche and Wagner, which was like a love affair between philosophy and art. Their relationship will be deconstructed by disengaging viewpoints from the subject, and immersing in actions evolving from a multitude of interchangeable, mutually understood concepts. What was born out of the death of faith?

Following his 5-year explorative series of the Interrupted Dream, The Birth of Tragedy is Yung’s new work using the theme of TRAGEDY to reconstruct theatre experimentation on relationship and art. From the German philosopher who was profoundly influential to the development of 20th century philosophy, to the context of contemporary audiences; from the Wagner operas Nietzsche once so fondly embraced and later contemptuously reviled, to noise music that tries to reestablish the boundaries of music, Yung continues with his ultra-minimalist theatre design of One Table Two Chairs, creating a platform for dialogues across consciousness, generations, cultures.
