We do not solve problems, we play problems.
At a time of uncertainty and fear, how do we situate ourselves and seek the light at the end of the tunnel? In collaboration with physical theatre master and educator David Glass, O Theatre Workshop and Dream of Tomorrow, Tai Kwun will present the “ÉLAN Lost Child Project HK” in July. “The Lost Child Project” was developed by Glass from 1997 in 22 countries. Its core mission is to use theatre and arts to empower marginalised children and young people. Taking the French word “élan” (vigorous spirit) as the lead, the project assembles the joint efforts of artists, scholar and community to look into the mental health of youngsters and grown-ups through an eclectic programme of dance, theatre, music, interactive games and forum. With the aid of social media and technology, “ÉLAN” will bring together the digital and reality, igniting the creative power across the communities. Join us in this quest to reconnect with your inner child!
About Lost Child Project HK
A 3-year project with physical theatre master and educator David Glass and O Theatre Workshop. Its core mission is to use theatre and arts to empower marginalised children and young people in Hong Kong. After the exploration rounds of workshops in 2019, the Lost Child Project Hong Kong was launched this year. It is a cross-disciplinary advocacy campaign, using creative interventions such as training workshops and performances. This year, workshop participants, including social workers, arts practitioners, teachers and students, are invited to further their artistic research and use various media and art forms to reach the communities.
