ARE YOU O.K?
with Hong Kong Arts Festival (No Limits)
We wake, we get dressed, we brush our teeth, we eat our breakfast, we hydrate, we exercise, we hydrate again, we grow plants, we look out our window. If we are lucky we go outside, we see people, at a distance, we laugh, we cry. We go to bed. Then we do it all again. But are we OK?
A diverse group of performers from Hong Kong and Wales (UK) reflect on a world in lockdown, on how life has changed, or stayed the same, on what and who we miss, on how we can help each other without being able to be with each other.
Are you OK? is a live performance, created on Zoom and presented via zoom from the performer’s own homes. The performance will be in Cantonese and English.
Great news! A recording of the live performance is now available to watch on demand!

We feel very lucky and excited to be working with a mix of 28 artists from Hong Kong and Wales, devising “Are you Ok”, a live zoom performance created across continents, languages and cultures and all without leaving our own homes. We can’t wait to share it with the world on the 6th March.
