“The history of Taiwan is composed by intruders, one after another” - Huan-Hsiung Li

Premiered in 1986 as one of the representative works in the second generation of The Little Theatre Movement of Taiwan, Intruder by Huan-Hsiung Li and the Rive-Gauche Theatre Group reflects the dysphoric, unsettled, and suppressed reality during the martial law period. This work juxtaposes the adaptations of Maurice Maeterlinck’s one-act play Intruder and Truman Capote’s short story “Miriame”. Whilst at times engaging viewers with a meta-perspective, this piece invokes the ambiguous intertextuality between the situatedness of the characters, the actors, and the audience.

Intruder marks the beginning of the highly symbolic and poetic theatrical style of Li, following which he (co)founded the Creative Society Theatre Company and the Mr. Wing Theatre Company. Almost four decades apart, Li, now one of Taiwan's most presenting theatre directors whose oeuvre ranges across avant-garde theatre, musical and opera, revisits his first directing work.

The revival version is joined by the emerging director Jing Wu, founder of House Peace and resident director of the Mr. Wing Theatre Company, forming a dialogue between two generations with their unique interpretations and observations of various eras. Who is the intruder, and for what they intrude, now? With a critically acclaimed cast including Yen Ling Hsu, Hua-Chien Hsu and Jing-Yi Wu, Intruder attempts to, once again, reexamine the symptoms of our society.

Mr.Wing Theatre Company

Mr.Wing Theatre Company was founded in 2006 by Li Huan-Hsiung, once a vital member of the Rive-Gauche Theatre Group and Creative Society. The troupe inherits the legacy of the Rive-Gauche Theatre Group and the experience of Creative Society to form a theatre of imagery and progressive aesthetics and to emphasize the practical and spiritual purposes of scripts. Recently the troupe has been experimenting with renowned Taiwanese illustrator Jimmy LIAO's musicals, opera, and multimedia performance to build a performance platform of infinite possibilities, great aptitudes, and potent styles. The troupe aims to engage in international cultural exchange through theatrical touring. With an emphasis on merging Eastern and Western modern theater, the troupe looks to drive the creative momentum of Taiwan's theater and cultivate the public’s appreciation of aesthetic diversity.
Upholding the founding beliefs of the troupe, Mr. Wing Theatre Company will continuously explore new theatrical horizons and international exchange opportunities, hoping that the encounter of different genres and cultures will lead to splendid outcomes.
