This September, ArtisTree, Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation (HKYAF) and National Youth Theatre of Great Britain joined hands bringing the world premiere of an original theatre performance – FLOOD – a brand new piece written by award-winning British playwright Rory Mullarkey to Taikoo Place.
Taking inspiration from flooding as a major global issue around the world, the performance is written in the style of eloquent contemporary verse that explores the consequences of flooding and salvaging hope in the midst of despair.
The theatrical production was performed by a cast of 22 talented young multinational performers selected by NYT last summer, bringing FLOOD to life through diverse theatrical features, including choral speaking, physical components and digital imagery.
The creative team of FLOOD from NYT had collaborated with ArtisTree and YAF to present a series of theatrical workshops in July and August.
