Synopsis

We are comforted by facts, by the familiarity of things we know to be ‘true.’ The sun rises in the East. There are twenty-four hours in a day. I exist. These truisms simplify our lives, enable us to get through the process of living. We are not afraid to leap into the air, because we know we will land on the ground. So we get by, day by day, until that unexpected moment when we are overwhelmed by the whisper in our hearts as we are sitting in a bustling coffee shop or walking down a crowded sidewalk, or as we are lying in bed with a loved one, nestled together... Despite all of our knowing, we will never be known. All That Remains is a meditation on the fluid boundary between dream and reality, fear and desire. It is an invitation to see and be seen.

Director’s Statement

In 2011, I started staging Riverbed Theatre’s Just for You series of immersive performances for an audience of one. Since then, we have created ten large-scale immersive experiences for one audience member at a time in hotels, museums, and galleries across Taiwan. These interactive encounters blur the boundaries between audience and spectators, focusing on sensory engagement (the touch of a performer’s hand, a sip of wine, the lingering scent of incense) and the intimate experience of seeing and being seen. All That Remains transforms this live, theatrical encounter into a virtual one. Even though we might be thousands of miles apart, we’re still together.
