Freedom Hi 自由閪
10th - 16th March
Pit Theatre, Vaults Festival 2020.
"Freedom Hi is wild and fierce, urgent and sorrowful." - Lynne Gardner, Stage Door App
VAULT FESTIVAL SHOW OF THE WEEK AWARD, WEEK 7
Awarded to exceptional productions from the Theatre & Performance programme.
A compilation of new writing and performance art by UK based Hong Kong and British East Asian artists. Drawing both on experiences of the front lines of protest and the diasporic experience of watching traumatic events unfold through digital platforms, this show explores the chaotic and fractured nature of the fight for freedom. We don’t know how this ends, this will never end-everything about this show is subject to change.
Peace is not peaceful
Acquiescence is violence
"The use of technology was impressive, but it was backed up in droves by some talented performers who told us stories of injustice and freedom that were stirring. - Mike Wells, The Reviews Hub
Artist line up:
Bonnie Chan, Ghost Chan, John Chan, Yik Sau Chung, Angela Wai-Nok Hui, Jennifer Lim, Isabella Leung, Daniel York Loh, Shum Pui Yung, Gabby Wong.
