Words from “Landlord”
I never thought of having a career in theatre or even regarding it as a job. For me what it has felt like is a crazy adventure, a journey and a playful exploration. Sometimes it has made perfect sense and other times has made no sense at all. Just like life. And so as the Beatles sang ‘When I'm 64’.I thought in my 64th year I would tell the story of my life. A life through which I have met, worked with and learned from remarkable people. From stars to street children. from captains of industries to captains of ships. Across 74 countries and teaching 120,000 people. Inventing, improvising, dreaming, surviving and hopefully celebrating the mad world we live in. I hope my story might reflect some of your stories at this extraordinary moment in history.
Speaker of “An Unnaturalistic Life”
Long Table Sharing cum Closing Ceremony
The generation of today is facing all kinds of challenges. How to explore the way forward in the maze, and still see the future after experiencing the losses in life?
Three pairs of guests from different ages and backgrounds will gather with Project Artistic Director Olivia Yan and Project Professional Adviser and clinical psychologist Dr. Paul Wong at a long table. With games and questions, they will have a sincere dialogue and embark on a journey of "Lost & Found". Focusing on the three major challenges the youth are facing today – ecology, self-image and mental health – the guests will rethink the interpretation and definition of "Lost & Found" from their perspectives and experiences to spark off ideas and light up the road ahead.
