賽馬會藝壇新勢力 | 「風平草動」系列《恨鐵不成鋼》黃俊達與綠葉劇團 JOCKEY CLUB New Arts Power | “Wild is the Grass” Series — Fe + C… ➡ Steel?: Ata Wong Chun-tat & Theâtre de la Feuille
JOCKEY CLUB New Arts Power | ArtWalk x Heritage Series: Wild is the Grass — Fe + C… ➡ Steel? by Ata Wong Chun-tat & Theâtre de la Feuille
Artists: Ata Wong Chun-tat, Théâtre de la Feuille
Steel is a composite of iron and other elements such as carbon; an alloy.
Acclaimed for high density and anti-corrosion power, steel surpasses iron,
And out-performs pure iron.
But if carbon or other substances are missing during the conversion process,
It ends in rust.
Which is, a piece of scrap.
Obviously lack of value, scrap iron can only be dumped or recycled.
No one wants a dysfunctional metal.
We all fear to have a life like that.
Therefore, those who want to survive in the opposite, must be absolutely determined to get through the way just like the making of steel,
Beating each game.
How many of them do voluntarily undergo the harsh refinement,
And how many of them can eventually succeed to be steel?
Teaming an all-female casts of a dozen members using body and vocal work, Théâtre de la Feuille is going to fuel up Tai Kwun with a larger-than-steel energy.

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.
