Wusheng Company | Trog


Kanneltalo, Klaneettitie 5, Helsinki

Wusheng Company, founded in 2011, is a physical theatre group using mainly acting and movement techniques based on Peking Opera and combining elements from theatre, dance and circus with live-music.

Trog is a duo-piece with Wusheng Companys artistic director and peking opera specialist Antti Silvennoinen and percussionist Pekka Saarikorpi who combines drumming and body percussion with Silvennoinens expressive and precise martial-like movement.

Trog is based on a short poem written by John Evans (UK) being the first stage version of the text. Vultures from the past won´t leave Trog alone and he gets ambushed. Trog encounters mystical Crystalman and realizes that all he has learned is a mere illusion. Trog is forced to reassemble and rebuild his body. The piece also draws parallels to Silvennoinen´s studies in Chinese Peking Opera. The learning process is very similar to Martial arts, where precision and hard training is essential. There comes a time when one must ”kill his master” and start doing one’s own mistakes and finding one’s own path.
