Hijinx from Wales has been invited to enrich the theatre experiences of people with different abilities by holding a series of newly developed online devising theatre workshops. Due to the pandemic, the Hijinx artistic team and local collaborator guide the participants through the devising process online in the creation of the final online Showcase.
Are you OK?
We get up, we get dressed, we brush our teeth, we eat our breakfast, we drink some water, we exercise, we drink again, we grow plants, we look out our window. If we are lucky, we go outside, we see people – at a distance. We laugh, we cry. We go to bed. Then we do it all over again. But are we OK?
A diverse group of performers from Hong Kong and Wales (UK) reflects on a world in lockdown, on how life has changed or stayed the same, on what and who we miss, on how we can help each other without being able to be with each other.
Are you OK? is a live performance, created on Zoom and presented via Zoom from the performers’ own homes.
