''Let the Mirror Speak'' Hong Kong-France Theatre Exchange Project 

Through the looking glass, enter the parallel universe of theatre. 

French May Arts Festival presents, Let the Mirror Speak, a two-year Hong Kong-France theatre exchange project. Playwrights and directors, Hoi Fai Wu (Hong Kong) and Nicolas Kerszenbaum (France) will reside in Paris and Hong Kong, respectively, for multiple phases. During the process, they constantly search for their self-identity, reflecting the inner dialogue like a mirror, tracing back their culture and history. Together with materials collected during residency, their inspiration will be developed into a series of activities, lectures, and theatre works in parallel perspectives, reflecting Hong Kong and French culture in double layers.
