In times of trouble, what can we learn from each other’s experience, how can we gain wisdom and can we find love in the midst?
In January this year, award-winning screen veteran Elaine Jin and musical theatre stars Margaret Cheung and Jordan Cheng explored loss and longing through a game of mahjong in the work-in-progress presentation of Hard Times. After half a year of feedback collection and evaluation, the team is back with a full-scale presentation this September that looks at suffering in a humorous and bittersweet light.
Moving to a bigger venue in The Box, director Edward Lam once again creates a highly experimental work. With a greater focus on the music element, Lam has invited Harris Ho to join the production as music director and compose several new pieces. Together with video projection and live music, the team hopes to share with the audience an innovative form of theatre that combines singing and acting.
Using intangible cues on stage, the performers are encouraged to lay bare their innermost feelings and life experience. They learn from each other, complement each other, and create an “organic theatre work” that is ephemeral but enduring in our memories.
