Posthuman Condition
Creation by Pat to YAN, the House Author of Nationaltheater Mannheim



“His keen eye for the hypocrisies and inequalities of digital modernity has made Yan one of Asia’s most sought-after playwrights.”

(Frankfurt’s General Newspaper)

Technological advancements ruin humanity. 

Karmas, thus, always come before Judgment Day


Frank is a low-skilled man with expertise in playing TV games living in a developed country, the Country of Isolation. He possesses a decent family life by controlling a drone at home with his invincible gaming skills to bomb other countries.


But his son is born without a buttock (It comes from a Cantonese slang/curse). He is desperate for the truth: he rewinds all the operation recordings and finds he bombed an innocent lady with a baby. His long journey of redemption begins: to visit where he bombed.


The curse and the blessing are always two sides of the same coin.


His son, Another, is cured by equipping with a cyber buttock. The side-effect is: that he will grow ten times faster than others. He also gets an exceptional talent too. Is Another the Cyborg an indication of human's future or an epic fall of technology?


We bring you to this dystopian world of technology to seek a new answer for our ever-changing world.
