About the event

If the great sea had memories, what would it record about us? From  ancient wars to sea goddesses, from fish-human hybrid legends to  legendary female pirates, the continuous waves of historical stories  have nurtured the maritime civilizations of each generation. Inspired by  the ancestral legends of the human-fish hybrid ‘Lo Ting’ and the pirate queen ‘Zheng Yi Sao’, “Beyond the Shore" (Peng Chau version) connects mythology,  history, and gender through interactive dance theater, embarking on a  journey of self-reflection.

This performance was premiered at the Itoshima International Arts  Festival in Japan. Returning to Peng Chau, we hope to understand the  relationship between islanders and non-islanders with the sea through a series of local interviews. The event is divided into two parts. The  first part is the “Interview" where the team will host at the open space outside the Lung Mo Temple, engaging in a "designed conversation” activity. The second part is the "live performance". After three weeks, we will use the local stories as a blueprint to create the "second half" of the performance and share this unique sunset moment.

There will be a travelling performance on the 3:20pm Mui Wo ferry to Peng Chau  , embark on the inter-island ferry, and end in Peng Chau at 3:40pm !
