Hong Kong International Black Box Festival: New Youth Group "One Fine Day" (Beijing)

  • HKRep Black Box (8/F Sheung Wan Civic Centre)
  • 11.10.2018 - 14.10.2018

An alternative theatre experience about real people and everyday life

What comes to mind when we hear the words “one fine day”? In this unique and powerful production, you will have an opportunity to encounter a range of Hong Kong residents sharing personal tales of happiness and heartbreak.

On stage, in tightly choreographed simultaneous recitals, 19 non-professional performers share stories of their “one fine day”. Provided with headphones, the audience is free to choose whether to listen to the story of a single narrator, to switch between channels to hear other tales, or to put down the headphones and listen to everyone at the same time. Through the cacophony of sounds and voices, intensely intimate stories emerge, coming together in a profound and confronting experience for audiences and performers alike.

Directed by Beijing-based Li Jianjun, One Fine Day has moved audiences in Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou and Shenzhen, and inspired those who took part to reflect on issues like personal relationships and how people relate to the society around them. This October, join us for tales that are quintessentially Hong Kong!

We will be looking for these 19 Hong Kong residents through an open call for the Hong Kong premiere of One Fine Day. We welcome you to take part in this one-of-a-kind theatre experience. 


“A graceful kind of modern dance, a symphony of voices, a poem about horizons, a random diary found at the metro.”   — Meng Jinghui
