The Open Platform: Castle of Glass

  • HKRep Black Box (8/F Sheung Wan Civic Centre)
  • 23.11.2018 - 02.12.2018

The story of 1941 re-enacted over and over again in an unknown space

Six amnesiacs,
Caught in an unknown space,
As if under a curse, they repeat their stories about the Fall of Hong Kong in 1941.

An underground boss driven by patriotism to collaborate with the Japanese.
A British officer, misunderstood and isolated.
A Canadian soldier intent to keep himself alive.
A Japanese lieutenant unfailingly following commands.
A young Chinese soldier whose training is interrupted.
An old merchant who fights for the sake of his old comrades.

They step closer and closer to their destinies,
All six try to discover the hidden secret behind the curse.

This might be a fable,
Or is it a prophecy?
