But hey you are at the waterfront so what do you expect?

About Snuff Puppets
Snuff Puppets is Australia’s leading giant puppet experimental theatre company who combine puppetry, visual and physical theatre to create a unique and idiosyncratic performance language by calling on all that is taboo in our society, with a vulgar, irreverent and comic sensibility.

 


Busking

Are you one of those people who love to stop and admire street performers when they’re showcasing their offbeat talents on the sidewalks? If you are, then Freespace Fest is the place you need to be. Celebrating the art of the street, we bring buskers from across Hong Kong to perform their bizarre talents of all different kinds. Enjoy this vibrant experience as you stroll along the harbourfront, but hold onto your jaw, people tend to drop them a lot once they get a look at the talent of Hong Kong’s busking culture.

 


'Parade for 111 Cyclists', Mauricio Kagel, Eine Brise ('A Breeze')

23 Nov (Sun) 1:50pm-2:20pm

If you think musicians are all couch potatoes or music should only be performed in a stuffy concert hall, think again! Argentine avant-garde composer Maurico Kagel’s outdoor piece ‘Eine Brise’ combines music and cycling and will definitely change your mind. In fact, with 111 cyclists parading along the Waterfront Promenade and creating a medley of whistling, singing, bells ringing, flutter-tonguing and vocal gusts of wind, this bicycle music parade will definitely be an eccentric addition to Freespace Fest.
