In the past four years, numerous theatre productions were canceled due to the pandemic. They have not been presented to the audience. In the cycle of continuous creation, design, and rehearsal without performance, we have some new viewpoints: Can the performances still be called performances without showing off to the audience? What did we create in past four years? Can productions that have not been presented only be sealed off? Can theatre works that have been performed be presented to the audience again in the form of an exhibition?
We will collect some "fragments" from different productions, which can be a design born from a play, an idea of a theatre production, or a concept generated in the execution of a production. They originally lost their function and meaning due to the cancellation or end of the original productions (they were products born for their respective theatre productions). We do not consider these "fragments" as garbage. On the contrary, they become the protagonist of the work itself by freeing themselves from the limitations of the original productions and giving birth to a new life.
PQ2023 Hong Kong Student Gallery will be dressed up as a store room to present the theme of fragments left behind in past productions. We will tailor a presentation method for each fragment to help these potentially valuable works have the opportunity to be reborn.
