“Drift Home” is a theatre piece created in a flat located in Shuangjing, Beijing by theatre director Sun Xiaoxing and four performers. It was presented on the Internet on Sep 28th, 2014 as part of the “48 Hours Micro Drama”, an online creative theatre platform jointly initiated by Baidu.com and theatre director MengJinghui. The word “Drift” originates from a manga book: Drift Classroom. Five artists were closeted for 48 hours of creative work while everything was broadcasted live on the Internet. Though all confined to a flat in the real world offline, it was as if all were taken on an exile to the virtual world online. “Home” is the place where creation and living take place at the same time. Emoji, talking to oneself in the corner of a room and playing accordion without producing melodies, all these remind one of a “single room”. And when all these “single rooms” overlap in a spatial/temporal disorder, when all these grown-up single children who were used to living by oneself start a living-together, a new story is born.
