Show resume

What’s wrong with the Lion?

With the success of being ranked 16th among 1,480 programmes in Off D’Avignon 2017 and the popular response in 2018, we are coming back for the third year!

As a sequel to La Roche Du Lion from 2018, La 乜春 mat1 ceon1 du Lion (Que?…Le Lion…?) comes with all the questions Hongkongers have in mind. From under the colonial rule to the “homecoming” to a rich, powerful and estranged control freak motherland, the drastic changes in the lives of a group of common people, in the city under the Lion Rock, continue with full-on absurdity. Like in Metamorphosis (Franz Kafka), instead of feeling tied up with the limitations, new challenges and new rules at the beginning, how do we stop the nostalgia, find a way to move forward and “feel free”? Is it the hallucination of a group of lunatics? Dementia of one’s integrity? Or the modern-day exodus? This surrealist, vigorous, contemporary and humorous presentation is going to throw out all the questions and to give you an unforgettable theatre experience.

Full of movement and musical elements. Minimal in speech.
