OFFICIAL INVITATION TO COME AND SEE ‘THE LONELIEST WHALE’- an original devised piece of theatre exploring how technology is affecting our relationships with one another; past, present and future….
Performed at the Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre, Shek Kip Mei, between Tuesday 10th and Sunday 15th June, tickets go on sale through Urbtix.com on May 10th, 2014. Daily performances begin at 8pm, with additional matinee performances at 3pm on both Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th June.
Tickets for ‘The Loneliest Whale’ are available for HK$150, with concessions available for students and seniors. For every 10 student tickets bought, an adult ticket will be given for free.
The play is an original piece of devised theatre written and directed by Victoria Allington. Using elements of physical theatre and folk song, ‘The Loneliest Whale’ explores the themes of human connections and how social media affects us. In many ways it can be invaluable in helping us stay in touch, yet often the technology geared towards connecting us leaves us feeling more disconnected and isolated. By exploring both sides, ‘The Loneliest Whale’ aims to get the audience thinking about the role technology plays in their lives.
‘The Loneliest Whale’ is PAEAN’s first major performance in Hong Kong, supported by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, The Hong Kong Arts Development, and The Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre.
