The Open Platform –The Spoon

  • HKRep Black Box (8/F Sheung Wan Civic Centre)
  • 02.09.2023 - 17.09.2023
When only a spoon is left at tether’s end, feigning death is the only way to live
A graphic designer burdened with debt switches professions and becomes a hitman. His clients are so demanding that he resorts to all sorts of creative solutions: he even grabs a spoon in search of his university classmate, collaborating in a finely crafted “art work”!
Alfie Leung bases his script from personal observations, adding absurd plot twists and creating an elegy of an average working man's struggle to survive. Assistant Artistic Director Yau Ting Fai guides the characters through the nifty plot as it progresses, faking a perfect death!
