Hong Kong – Community Oral History Theatre Project

The Community Oral History Theatre Project – Sham Shui Po District, presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department in collaboration with Chung Ying Theatre Company and the Neighbourhood Advice-Action Council and sponsored by the Sham Shui Po District Council, will be staging four public performances in March. Twenty elderly people will take part in the shows, which are based on the project participants’ recollections.  In a series of workshops, the project provided the elderly with drama training and gathered the personal experiences and valuable recollections of the elderly in Sham Shui Po District. Plots were written based on the collected oral history, and elderly participants were given the opportunity to perform their stories onstage. For full story click here.
