An installation theatre performance of which you are the final piece of the puzzle.

Experience for yourself what it means to be jailed for 11 years.  What kind of freedom could you possibly hope for?

 

In 1979, Václav Havel, ex-Prime Minister of Czechoslovakia, was sent to jail due to political charges. During imprisonment, Havel safe-guarded his free will by putting in writing his meticulous self-reflection. He looked deeply into his heart so his soul could keep flying.

 

In 2014, on our free will we walk deep into the jungle of spiritual confinement. The people of Hong Kong move their bodies around, failing to notice Freedom departing. Is the city too noisy for the voice of the soul to be heard?

 

Premiered in Taiwan in 2013, “Special Delivery: Politely Intractable”, the collaboration of hoyingfung and Möbius Strip Theatre, was a departure point for Ho to continue his contemplation on Václav Havel and his Letters to Olga, and was meant to be a process that goes beyond.

The performance lasts for about 100 minutes without intermission.
