In the slippery world of desire, we are always yearning yet can never discover what will actually satisfy.
On a dark street corner, two strangers are about to enter an unstated deal. The Client needs, without knowing what he really wants. The Dealer menaces and probes without disclosing what he has to offer. One has to buy, the other to sell. Their conversation is filled with ambiguous exchanges delivered in tender whispers as well as howling cries as each seeks to discover the other's darkest secrets.
This is a chase with no escape, a highly charged struggle amid a Kafkaesque landscape. A devastating outcome seems inevitable...
Local director Chan Ping-chiu's latest offering is an inspiring reinterpretation of In the Solitude of Cotton Fields, a theatrical masterpiece exploring the nature of desire by the late French writer Bernard-Marie Koltès.
