26 plays about Hong Kong people, animals and the wisdom of living and dying

HK: A Theatre of Life and Death

From A to Z, HK: A Theatre of Life and Death plays out 26 scenes of living and dying. From the moment before conception, to the very second of death, and to the afterlife, these 26 stories of Hong Kong people and animals become our choice menu for when facing (or escaping) life and death. A professor, a security guard, a subdivided flats landlord, a cat, a train track, a deck of Tarot cards, a facemask; the future life, the current life, the one before and the one after, reincarnation of cats and dogs; chanting, burning, fortune-telling and channelling; Karma, reincarnation, fetishism and stubbornness; where is the wisdom of living and dying? On the stage called “Hong Kong”, speaking of death is taboo. But when the time comes, we all have to take the bow. Now, who would go up on stage and be embarrassed?
