#SiteSpecificGuidedTour   #PrivateSpaceVsPublicSpace    #MakingMemoriesNightandDay

carry on is a site-specific performative guided tour, entirely refigured for each new location. It interacts with the architectural space of each site, and transcends its past, present and future. Since 2014, the project has been recreated for different spaces in Japan, Belgium, Latvia, Germany and Norway, among other countries.

In the Hong Kong version, audience members will be taken on a guided tour through back rooms, vestibules, interstices and other unnoticed areas in Tai Kwun, where they will find reminders of history and simultaneously leave traces of their own, to finally arrive at unexpected discoveries.

These inaccessible, hidden and unnoticed details are going to transform Tai Kwun into a fascinating alternative version of itself! 

Each show is limited to 10 participants. Register now to secure your spot!

Core Creative Personnel

Concept/Direction: Heine Avdal (Norway) & Yukiko Shinozaki (Japan)


Avdal and Shinozaki started their own company fieldworks (formally named deepblue). Since 2000 they have created more than 20 productions which have all toured internationally. Its productions are concerned with “performativity” and allow for an open interpretation of movement as a heterogeneous combination of a variety of media. Consequently, the artists draw on a broad range of disciplines and expertise: performance, dance, visual arts, video, music and technology. Every performance plays on the tension and contrast between the body and objects, the body and the mind, fact and fiction/representation, the tangible and the invisible, the organic and the artificial. Recurrent themes in their productions include the relationship between performer and spectator, the non-hierarchical approach to the various elements of a performance, and the exploration of both theatrical and non-theatrical environments.
