Sisyphus No. 9

Tung Jit Yang, Director | Liew Chee Heai, Actor/ Performer

Sisyphus No. 9

Sisyphus No. 9 draws inspiration from two tales: the eternal struggle of Sisyphus, condemned to endlessly push a boulder uphill, and Beethoven's triumphant composition and conducting of his 9th Symphony, despite near-total deafness in Vienna, Austria. The play is said to explore the absurdity/meaning of life through repetitions and visceral movements, accompanied by live ambient music. We find out more about this performance art production - which is the closing performance from Theatresauce’s 2023 season - from the show's director, Tung Jit Yang, and performer Liew Chee Heai.
