Theatre Horizon's contribution to  the Edinburgh Festival Fringe


Once upon a time a merman tribe called Lu-Tings was said to have settled in the southern tip of China, or what we know as Hong Kong today. Neither fish nor human beings, they tried hard to survive in face of the expanding Han Chinese culture until they could not take it anymore. A massive revolt broke out, which ended in suppression and bloody massacre a story of great relevance for Hong Kong today. Named one of HK's most watchable companies, Theatre Horizon and award-winning director tell this compelling story of oppression and revolt.

Theatre Horizon's creation of The Lu-Tings premiered in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August, 2014. It was highly regarded by the local audience and critics alike. The Lu-Tings was chosen to be one of 30 theatre performances to be archived at the National Library of Scotland by the Fringe Performance Archive.
