My Luxurious 50 sqft Life

A multimedia performance featuring the housing problem of Hong Kong, the show explores how life in 50 square feet sub-divided units influences people’s interpersonal relationships and family communications. Through installations, live video projections, exhibitions, physical performances, audio effects, and interactions with the audience, it investigates the issues of inhuman living conditions and the reasons behind the emergence of sub-divided units.

Having won multiple awards, My Luxurious 50 sqft Life is packed with cultural exchanges and new experiences for the audience. The world premiere was held in Hong Kong in April 2014. It was performed at Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2014, re-run in Hong Kong in January 2015 and performed at Taipei Fringe Festival in August 2016.
