Synopsis:

一段关于生命和流逝的心灵独白

她说,人死后,体重会减轻21克,那就是灵魂的重量。她又说,其实那只不过是水分流失。又也许,那流失的水分,便是灵魂的本来面目。她说。

关于那个人的死亡,她不知道从何说起。她不知道怎么述说,甚至不知道该用第一人称还是第三人称。她不知道有没有人愿意倾听,不知道这到底值不值得说,更不知道说了又怎样。生存、疾病、衰老、死亡......生命的意义究竟是在于生?还是在于死?

三位创作者导演刘晓义、香港编剧潘诗韵和演员梁晓端,将以沉静的诗意美学,叙述一段关于相遇、关于离别、关于生命的心灵独白。

A soulful monologue on life and its departure its permanence

She says the body becomes 21 grams lighter upon death.

She says that is the weight of the soul.

No. That is merely the loss of water.

Or, are our souls made of water?

She has no idea how to speak of his death. She can neither recount the incident nor knows what to make of this strange detachment. Who would listen and if that matters?

Director Liu Xiaoyi, Hong Kong playwright Janice Sze Wan Poon and performer Melissa Leung Hiu Tuen will bring you this soulful piece on the rupture of life and on death and its permanence.
