Firehall Arts Centre, Vancouver

A Firehall Arts Centre Residency Presentation
Hong Kong Exile

This multi-media dance theatre piece explores the socio-political realities of the Cantonese diaspora, sourcing themes of loss, nostalgia and desire that re-occur with selected works of Hong Kong filmmaker Wong Kar Wai. Room 2048 is the work from Vancouver-based interdisciplinary supergroup Hong Kong Exile, known for their loud and striking digital aesthetic, tongue-in-cheek humour, and engagement with cultural politics.

Room 2048 — a dream machine — in digital light and smoke, we pursue a history that is not ours. A living past, a dying future, and a stillborn present. We will lie. We will cheat. We will spend thousands of years here.

This multi-media dance theatre piece explores the socio-political realities of the Cantonese diaspora, sourcing themes of loss, nostalgia and desire that re-occur with selected works of Hong Kong filmmaker Wong Kar Wai. From the creators of NINEEIGHT.
