About this show

The (New) Trial is a radical version of The New Trial by Peter Weiss (1916-1982), adapted and directed by Dennis Yueh-Yeh Li. The play experiments with identity and power-relations, presenting a surreal look at the life of K, the chief attorney in an international corporation. The play explores K's obsessive idealism and his self-destructive methodology in helping others. Confined in his own docile body, K is manipulated as the public mask for the corporation to win the "war" over current global market expansion and eventually is abandoned by the corporation once the victory is obtained.
