Summer, Hong Kong, 2046. A gigantic black chest appeared and hovered over Yuen Long and Tai Po for 7 days and nights. Alarmed, the authorities were at the end of their wits. On the eighth day, the chest emitted a blue ray of light that eliminated certain natural elements in Yuen Long and Tai Po, upsetting the ecological balance. The authorities decided to commission “HKScienceTemple”, a young scientific detective collective, to go after the disappeared elements of the community. Members of the collective traced their way to popular spots in Yuen Long and Tai Po, applying their art and science knowledge to resolve the mystery before them. They also bring an interactive treasure hunt to the theatres, sharing the joy of science with kids.
The Young Science Detectives: HKScienceTemple is the post-credits “theatre” of Black Box Exercise 2020 Out-of-the-box Career Theatre based on the Black Box Exercise art education project. Using “the future” as a theme, the project explores the issue of “employment” via means of experiment, art, technology, environment and society.
