This October and November, Hong Kong Repertory Theatre and West Kowloon co-present the Hong Kong International Black Box Festival with four productions from around the world – One Fine Day (Beijing), MDLSX (Italy), Oedipus Schmoedipus (Australia/Hong Kong) and Five Easy Pieces (Switzerland/Germany/Belgium) – offering audiences an exciting glimpse of the diverse possibilities of contemporary theatre.

Under the theme “Becoming Real”, the four-week festival showcases bold and unconventional forms of theatre that blur the lines between representations of fiction and reality, and offer new perspectives that challenge our limits and understanding of the everyday.

Each production also invites the audience to become aware of our own individual agency, engaging us as spectators, witnesses, consumers – and in some cases as non-professional performers – and allowing us to experience theatre in entirely new and energising ways.

The festival also includes a series of workshops and talks. Details to be announced in July 2018.
