Artistic Director’s Notes:

Looking at our own reflection in the mirror, we are reminded of our life's cycles.
How many people have passed by, hidden behind the reflections of the past?
Is it you or me, him or her?
Have memories left any traces behind?

Traces of a moment…
Traces of temperature…
Traces of the time…

There’s a lightness that lives in between joy and sorrow.
Perhaps, our lives don’t always have to be great.

Together we’ll build an atlas of our own. Together, we’ll rise and form a landscape of people who navigate themselves aimlessly in this never-ending urban maze.

Our Atlas was originally conceived as an interactive installation set to the Parade Ground in Taikwun for 9 days during the Hong Kong Arts Festival last February. Interactive performances and pop-up acts was also planned for 4 days over the weekend.
