Does the world just perplex the youth, or it is the same for adults? The challenges faced by young people are also challenges for society. While families are stuck at home during the pandemic, they have never been so close to each other –  yet the distance of their hearts may never have been so far. “Our Social Land Series” brings together people from different age groups to delve into the core issue of the generation gap. In this series of three cross-media theatre pieces, you are invited to reflect on what youth, loneliness and family mean to you.

Our Social Land Series 1 - Something Between Chaos and Order

What is chaos and what is order? Performed by a group of young actors from HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity, each will devise a unique piece of theatre work everyday from 28 June to 3 July at the Prison Yard to reflect on the state and significance of chaos and order at the time of crisis. Broadcasted online every day, it is an intimate “life experiment” made public for all to see.

Our Social Land Series 2 - Hey My Old Friend, Stay in Touch

Part 1

Part 3
Part 4
Part 5

A group of young and old people are trapped together in an unknown space for days on end. Until one day, the young person opens a music box and plays a love song. The old person stands up to open the door…

Starting from interviews conducted by young arts practitioners, who collected stories from middle-aged seniors, they surprisingly found the experiences so similar to their own. Bringing these shared compassions on stage, they wish to connect again and stay connected amid uncertainties.

Our Social Land Series 3 - Let’s Meet or Rather We Don’t?

When we have no choice but to stay home, do we still call it home or has it become a cage? Do we regard this valuable family time or a breaking point for concealed stress? In this online theatre workshop, we invite young people and their parents to discover and explore the meaning of “family”. Conducted live on stage, the participants will interact with online audience and invite them to contribute ideas to their discussion.
