Charles Kwong's Requiem at Tai Kwun
A dialogue between life and death, Charles Kwong’s Requiem is a fictional rite of passage for the dead and the living, with texts by writer and storyteller Yuen Che Hung and performances featuring local musicians. Transforming Tai Kwun into a transitional place between existence and transcendence, the work ventures into our inner worlds manifested through funeral ceremonies as we face mortality.
Requiem is commissioned by Tai Kwun Contemporary and produced by PROJECT21st. The work consists of videos and live performances that take place from November 2020 to March 2021.
