The Sound and Fury International Playwrights Translation & Exchange Program is a winning project of our “Folding the Axis” open call in 2021.
The Sound and Fury Play Reading Festival is initiated by a group of emerging independent playwrights in China who commit themselves to new writing, celebrating diversity and freedom of expression in writing and life.
In 2022, the Sound and Fury Play Reading Festival will present four iconic Swiss plays. These four works, by some of Switzerland’s most active and renowned contemporary playwrights, deal with a wide range of contemporary issues such as philosophical reflections on life and death, female utopias, aging and fertility. Through the presentation of these four plays, it is hoped that they will provide audiences and theatre creators with some new insights into what theatre is meant to be about at the present time.
From 12 to 14 August 2022, four productions of this year’s festival will be presented in the Live Gallery at U2 Art Museum in Beijing.
The world of the past is fading away, what voice will you make in the face of the new world?
