“Coming back… is NOT an option!”
This acclaimed Hip Hop Theatre is now in Adelaide after winning the Tour Ready Award and Best Production in Let’s Be Together Arts Festival 2018.
A fascinating city.
A place we all die trying to save, yet can’t wait to escape from.
Armie gives up all his dreams and go to Berlin,
with the only things he has – his girlfriend and his old cat.
There, he fights desperately for a chance to stay.
In the rebellious city, they find peace they’ve been longing for.
Counting down 365 days, coming back is NOT an option!
“Fxxx Hong Kong! I am a Hong Konger!”
Struggling between hope and anxiety, ease and repression,
Armie can’t help asking himself,
“Who are we? Why do we have to go?”
