Theatre artist Theatre troupe: Les Ballets C de la B from Belgium. 'Their productions are spontaneous and open.' Director: Italian Romeo Castellucci. 'He plays with perspective and directs for the sake of a visual story, not conventional dance.' Movies: Ghost in the Shell and Jin-Ro by Mamoru Oshii. 'I prefer animation to live action. The aesthetics of these two films resonate with me.' Website: paidu.com.cn 'It's a search engine in China. I usually look for practical information and theatre-event updates.' Dish: sausages and cured or barbecued meats. 'I like rather unhealthy, carcinogenic foods.' Getaway: Taipei. 'The environment for experimental theatre there is great. There is so much energy and youth.' Charity: Cao Chang Di (Grassland Work Station), founded by Wu Wenguang and Wen Hui. 'This is a grassroots project that gives young artists a platform and a small stipend to perform. As a struggling artist with no steady work, I think I'm a worthy charity case.' Three items to take to a desert island: a compass, provisions and a well-fuelled plane. 'After I've frolicked on the beach for a while, I'll fly myself away.' Pet peeve: war. 'It's an extremely stupid thing that yields no meaning.' How would you spend a million dollars: 'I'd produce all the theatre pieces I've written in the past few years. With the current budgeting scheme I have, I'd be able to stage about 500 of them.'
