A mini auto-ethnotheatre of a Hongkonger

Living in Hong Kong,
we are quarantined but never stop being creative during this period:
although our emotions fluctuate as the pandemic;
although we keep up with social distancing;
although we learn not to shake hands and hug the others;
we still create.

This is a mini auto-ethnotheatre created through Zoom during this “who knows what’s gonna happen tomorrow?” period. It is about Zoom, and our imaginations and stories about life in Hong Kong would be shared. Audiences would be invited for interaction with the performers to craft the stories about endless life adaptations and struggles. See You Zoom earlier this year gained an enthusiastic feedback from audiences with all “full house” performances. The team is coming back with more shows and an empowered creative team to respond the desire from audiences.

Though we are yet to know how 2020 will end like, let’s See You Zoom Again in this crispy and clear autumn!
