Magic in Chinese Style (That You All Know About)


The final original play produced by "Contemporary Writing for Theatre" programme. Critic-writer Tang Ching-kin’s stage debut is a highly conceptual work that is built upon a dialectical structure. It offers an intellectual discussion that takes on an ironical, if not critical view on history, the writing of history, and the application of history, in a seemingly “Chinese style”. Guest director Koh Choon-eiow’s witty and sharp staging creates immense physicality to Tang’s text.
