Freedom Hi 自由閪

At the time of writing this description (25th October 2019) the Hong Kong AntiELab protestors are entering their 20th week of action. Where will they be as you are reading this? Freedom-Hi is a synthesis, and by March 2020, possibly a retrospective, of theatre and performance art made by UK based Hong Kong and British East Asian artists during the protests. Personal experiences and geo-political commentary combine in an act of total theatre. We don’t know how this ends, this will never end-every thing about this show is subject to change.

Peace is not peaceful
Acquiescence is violence
光復香港
時代革命
香港人
加油
香港人
反抗
(Eternal Peace by Gabby Wong)

Artist line up (subject to change): Bonnie Chan, Chung Yik Sau, Gabby Wong, Isabella Leung, Daniel York-Loh and Jan Chan.
Compiled by Kim Pearce for Papergang Theatre.
Produced by Clarissa Widya for Papergang Theatre.

About Papergang Theatre

Papergang Theatre company is a theatre company with the aim of improving the representation of British East Asian culture across the dramatic arts primarily in UK theatre. We produce work that is informed by the East Asian experience within Britain and the diaspora, inspired by the desire to see that perspective on stage.

British East Asian culture and East Asian culture of the diaspora, is a unique amalgamation of Eastern and Western customs. There is no formula for this culture which can manifest itself in East and West mixtures of varying degrees but with the overriding factor that it is not solely one, nor the other. It is a recognisable and yet unique experience.
