Work

Breathe Me

Breathe Me premiered in Hong Kong in July 2015. The beautifully structured work is mainly about the relationship between men and women, and the exploration on the possibility of using different theatre space. The performance “creates powerful images of loneliness, desire and separation. It is abstract, yet succeeds in telling a compelling story with admirable simplicity.” (South China Morning Post)
