“I’d like to watch it again”
“Full of imagination”
A Multi-media Boundary Busting Theatre Production for Youth
Exploring his fascination with the old Kowloon Walled City and its history, Joshua Wolper’s latest play The Light Dragon brings together the past and the present, fantasy and reality, theatre and motion pictures.
Through a chance encounter in the Kowloon Walled City Memorial Park, a local teenaged school student and a middle-aged foreign visitor share their connection to the neighbourhood, and embark on an adventure that bends time and space, enabling them to explore the history and mythology around the Kowloon Walled City.
The Light Dragon is a fun and heart-warming story that explores friendship, perseverance, and the power of storytelling – all the while honouring the significance of our cultural heritage, and reminding us that the past is not always as distant as it seems.
