"Letter's End" goes down magical memory lane
********************************************

     Renowned physical theatre creator Wolfe Bowart will revisit Hong Kong next month (April) with his latest production, "Letter's End".

     Leading audiences on a dream-like exploration of a magical memory lane, this all-ages-friendly production is another enchanting mix of comedy and pathos, mime, magic and sleight of hand, shadow puppetry, film and sound, following last year's internationally acclaimed "LaLaLuna".

     If your mind was a room and your life's memories lost in a jumble of old boxes, what forgotten treasures might you find? Cut the string, tear open the brown paper wrapping and see a wondrous world rediscovered in "Letter's End". In this wonderland, mops sneeze, storks swoop in bearing gifts and trees grow out of shoes. Details of the performances are as follows:

April 2 (Friday) 8pm
Theatre, Sheung Wan Civic Centre
Tickets: $140 and $180

April 3 (Saturday) 8pm
Auditorium, Yuen Long Theatre
Tickets: $90, $120 and $160

     "Letter's End" is produced by Spoon Tree Productions founded by Wolfe Bowart. The company is devoted to providing world-class physical theatre productions that know no cultural or age barriers. After a three-year period devising, writing and workshopping the production, Bowart premiered "Letter's End" in the US in January 2009. Two months later, he undertook a 91-performance tour of Australia.
