Due to adverse weather, the programmes of ÉLAN Lost Child Project HK 2022 on 2 July 2022 will be rescheduled to take place at 11am – 1:45pm, 3 July 2022 at Laundry Steps. The programme “Blah Blah Land” at 2pm – 5pm, 3 July 2022 will take place as scheduled. Registration of “Blah Blah Land” has been full and will be streamed live at Tai Kwun website and Lost Child HK Facebook page.
When the pandemic has no end in sight and the world is still in turmoil, everyone is but a "Lost Child" in the maze. In collaboration with Hong Kong theatre veteran Olivia Yan and international physical theatre master and educator David Glass, Tai Kwun will present the "ÉLAN Lost Child Project HK 2022" this year, after its first edition in 2020.
This time, we continue to focus on and think from the perspective of the youth. With "YES AND!..." as our theme – in the midst of negativity, confusion and frustration, we hold on to the power of the arts and the spirit of "YES AND!..." in confronting negative emotions and outworn mindsets, getting rid of the defeatist pattern of "YES...BUT" and rebuilding the confidence and hope of the youth and every Lost Child!
