Comuna de Pedra has organized a set of three shows happening on different nights at different venues to highlight some of society’s minorities. “Stories of the oppressed shine with pride!”, the organizers claim. This is not merely a single story or performance but multiple stories and performances happening at the same time in different districts.
“With the development of society, we have the chance to listen to more stories of these minorities. However, due to an excess of information in the modern world, people do not have enough time to digest and thereby only see the surface, which leads to more labeling. Often times, we think critically without truly or deeply understand things. During this performance, we hope to create a private space for the majority group to really listen and understand these stories of the minority groups. These young people have all gone through tough times. Because of being different and not fulfilling the standards and expectations of the majority, they are negatively labeled and rejected by the society and even their families.”, Comuna de Pedra says.
The plays were created by Wong Weng Chon, directed by Zé, and are performed by Oscar Cheong, Chan Ka Hou, Tam Suk Ha, Loretta Lou, Bobby Leong, Si Tou Wai Wa, Chao Ka Wang, and Un Iat Hou. The shows are suitable for people aged 16 and above.
