Synopsis:

Angry roars from the lower depths of society

A run-down house in the lower depths of society
A group of social minorities: a prostitute, a jobless man, a thief, a cleaner
They have no face, no voice, no power and no way to change their fate
They live the life of dirt, struggling to survive the day
They roar, they shout, they grieve, they disappear
While we observe in silence

Artistic Director Koh Choon Eiow from approaching theatre who brought you the thought-provoking Chronology on Death returns with The Seven Silences: Anger – a developing series of performances adapted from the works of Hong Kong writer, Wong Bik Wan – which sheds light on the indifference and injustice endured by the social minorities.

来自社会底层小人物的怒吼

社会的底层,某栋破落的公共房屋
这里住了一群人:妓女、失业劳工、小偷、清洁女工
他们没有面孔,没有声音,没有消费能力,更没有改变命运的办法
他们的生命宛如尘土,只能在最卑微的角落挣扎求存
他们忿怒,他们呐喊,他们哀伤,他们消失
而我们,是否依然静默?

继2015年《死亡纪事》后,窮劇場联合艺术总监高俊耀再次造访华文小剧场节,为观众带来《七种静默:忿怒》。此剧改编自香港当代作家黄碧云《七宗罪》同名短篇小说,揭示一群小人物如何面对社会的漠视与不公不义。
