Two people from the nuclear explosion affected area. She speaks, he can’t.  He once witnessed a person being choked to death by the broken pieces of his organs; then he often has the feeling to be choked. They come here to introduce another face of post nuclear explosion. In there, the nature grows freely, flowers blossom. Green is the warmest colour. Animals lead their lives happily. But they can’t use conditioners and lotions in order not to be contaminated by radioactivity elements. Apart from these, nothing is not fine for living there.

In an age of liquidity, how can a person manage his love/life?

 

Sze Yin, a middle aged Hong Konger, specialises in creative technology. Once he met Lin lin in Berlin. Lin lin, aged 20 something, was born in Xi’an. They quickly fell in love with each other, but Sze Yin could only keep a long distance relationship with her as he had to be back to Hong Kong……

 

After three months, Yat Sum, at the same age with Sze Yin, suddenly kept seeing him. They studied in the same secondary school; and when Sze Yin was 25, Yat Sum saved his life, to a certain extent. But Yat Sum was married, had a son aged 5 …….

 

It’s a love story and not yet only a love story, as always. It’s still a story about city, life and time.

How to present the love life of Hong Kong people to Aliens?

N2, Cattle depot, Hong Kong, 8-11 FEB 2018

Tai Kwun, Hong Kong, 16 MAY 2018

Playwright & Director: Pat To YAN

''Those people, that crowd of people, moving to different directions, like cells. They, like us, if only living in a giant body, then the pain I am used to is only temporary, not worth mentioning. I feel this after having been to a bookstore in Tsim Sha Tsui. At that moment, I just stared at the crowd who was looking at the Christmas decorations." One day, she suddenly said to me. Before that, she stared at me for ten seconds. I am just wondering what kind of spirit is living in this girl's body?

 

After his completion of three epic works: 'A concise history of future', Yan Pat-to returns to explore the most intimate and yet painful part of himself. One's memory is inseparable to the city. We can't tell our story without city.
