Programme

The story takes place on a little basketball court. A group of "raw" newbies meets a group of veterans. When the weathered come across the red-blooded, they refuse to give in to the other amid disputes. Unfortunately, time doesn't move forward:

The old says: Maybe we have all died in the sea.
The young says: Maybe we are all forgotten in the storm.

If we search for the initial memory and grasp the last courage, would we be a little different? You are invited to participate in this long-lost game:

The audience will first "visit" the secret room of each "player", learn secretly from those seniors, feel the ups and downs of each story, and experience an exclusive journey of "life practice".

From you to me to him, maybe we are all so similar.
If the hour hand still goes forward, can we start over?


Words from “Landlord”

The idea of the project begins with "change". A long, long time ago, this city was a strange land to most people. They travelled over mountains and rivers to come here regardless of the hardship and then settled here gradually...

Decades have passed, and the city becomes a strange land to them again. It is often said that "change is the only constant", but when the tide comes, who can stand still? The world is getting more and more absurd every day; besides cherishing the moment and living a good life, we also hope to bring a little change to everyone. Because in the end, it always comes back to how willing we are to "change".

The group of creative performers in this show is composed of young and old amateurs. After getting along and exploring for more than three months together, they will share with you the different eras of Hong Kong and give you a good hug.

Wherever you are in the world, may you be well!

About

With the recent changes of social climate and social distancing measures, distance is not only physical but also psychological.

We hope to address our care about the distance between the old and the young, and bridge the gap between them in the form of drama. The elder generation unveil their memories and reveal the present situation of the new generation. Getting to know each other, these young and old friends form new imaginations of each other. Stories and creative activities are collected and organized into a text creation, presented as a virtual immersive theatre production to share their discoveries and feelings with the audience.

The performance will be held in prison cells as well as online. The audience will follow a specific route and visit different stories in the cells, accompanied by live DJ music, sharing and group performance. At the end of the show, the group will stage a basketball game that belongs to our time.
