About Documentary Theatre Festival
Pants Theatre Production is honoured to have organized the first two Documentary Theatre Festivals back in 2017 and 2019 with the generous support of the Arts Capacity Development Funding Scheme (ACDFS), which have drawn major attention in Hong Kong. In 2021-2022, we are proud to present the 3rd Documentary Theatre Festival in order to continue our effort in developing documentary theatre in Hong Kong. Like the first two successful Festivals, this year’s Festival will continue to present an array of events, ranging from research trips, playreadings, masterclasses, seminars and performances, in order to explore this unique theatre approach via multiple perspectives.
Theatre has long established a close relationship with the society. Documentary theatre is even more intertwined with social issues, and often regarded as a powerful means in response to dramatic social events. Both the international world and Hong Kong have been experiencing drastic changes in recent years. Hong Kong artists and audience are looking for a way that theatre can be related to the society. Hong Kong artists and audiences are more and more welcoming documentary theatre, which we have advocated for years. Documentary theatre works of various subjects and styles have been seen in Hong Kong, through which local and foreign audience understand more about Hong Kong. On the other hand, through learning about the development of documentary theatre in other countries, we can have a glimpse the world outside Hong Kong.
With the theme of ”Theatre of Society”, we carry on striving to relate to our society via the lens of documentary theatre. Another focus this year is the development of documentary theatre in such neighbouring Chinese-speaking regions. Our research trip this year will also cover such international communities as Greece, Czech and Spain, which are less known to Hong Kong audience.
