A report on one side of me
Am I the I you decide I will be?
A Movement Theatre Piece inspired by F. Kafka’s A Report to an Academy
in dialogue with the Prison Yard in Tai Kwun.
This is the place where the new ones are nurtured to run the world.
When a non-human transforms into a human,
Something like language starts to flash across the animal’s mind:
“My eyes follow your eyes follow me
Is it the only side you can see?
Am I the I you decide
Or the side I conceal?
Rules dividing right from wrong
Could I perform myself as I want?”

About Art Walk X Heritage
Free Spirits Wander Around the Site of Tai Kwun
After receiving wide acclaim in 2017, we bring in the new edition of Swim Walking in collaboration with orleanlaiproject, together with four groups of local artists from the JOCKEY CLUB New Arts Power. This brand new artistic journey will take place in “Tai Kwun”, one of the most important historical heritage projects in Hong Kong. In this architectural complex consisting the former Central Police Station, Central Magistracy and Victoria Prison, the audience will immerse into history and culture, when creativity creeps through the age-old walls, responding to the wandering free spirits through sound, dance, theatre, video and literature, to bring in a breath of free air.
Participating artists Yang Hao, Ivanhoe Lam, Jabin Law and Théâtre de la Feuille will take inspiration from the historical background and unique space of Tai Kwun to contemplate on the subtle line between surviving and living, after which they will produce a four-day cross-media live performances.
