Flight of fishes looks at the meaning of “community” through a sardine-eyed lens. how authentic are its choices when a sardine is inseparable from its school? is there really strength in numbers, or does mob rule reign supreme? sink or swim? one may peel away from the crowd, yet the food chain eventually claims everyone.

In 2019, zhong xianglin began developing a community theatre project that incorporates methods pioneered by odin teatret. character creation is done in groups, while participants cement their individuality through self-expression.

For flight of fishes@hk, an ensemble of about 60 community participants, led by five local teachers-artists, stewed in collective creativity to craft a thalassic allegory that is as honest as it is poignant. in particular, zhong teamed up with italian dramaturg fabrizio massini, and chilean artist carolina pizarro from odin teatret, to devise workshops that combine physical, musical and verbal improvisations.
