Stay with the Flow

24 May - 2 June

EVENT DESCRIPTION

Born in the 1950s, Lam Chor Tak has lived his life on a fishing boat off the Aberdeen coastline. In his youthful years, salted fish was the means to make a living; Tin Hau Festival feasts included elaborate contests and giant flower plaques. Decades later, Lam switches to fish farming and local tourism. The times have changed; Chor Tak insists on living on board and cooking on his vessel. Is he resisting progress or just choosing the good and insisting on it?

Following his play The Ward, Lee Wai Lok takes inspiration from local boat people, examining their dilemma whether to move ashore or continue their floating lives, etching an intimate portrait and probing the identity of Hong Kong’s own boat people.
