承蒙藝能發展資助計劃，本團在2017年舉辦了本地－甚至應該是亞洲－首次紀錄劇場節，引起熱切關注。英國劇場大師Nicolas Kent給予我們極大鼓勵，表示我們舉辦這次紀錄劇場節：「You would have done a great service for democracy worldwide」。既然播下種子，我們希望能夠在這基礎發展，持續推介外地的紀錄劇場，促進本地紀錄劇場發展。
Supported by The Arts Capacity Fund, we presented the 1st Documentary Theatre Festival in 2017, which is the foremost in Hong Kong or even in Asia. It has aroused great interest and attention on the documentary theatre. Shortly before the opening of the Festival, Nicolas Kent, the master of British theatre, gave a high expectation of the Festival, "You would have done a great service for democracy worldwide." Building on the success of the 1st Festival, we are determined to continuously promote overseas documentary theatre and foster local development.
“Theatre in Society: 2nd Documentary Theatre Festival" is composed of overseas visits, play readings, master classes, performances and publications to explore the uniqueness of documentary theatre from various perspectives. Within August 2019, there will be a line-up of multiple activities, and thus, August this year is the “Documentary Theatre Month”.
