It is 2017, 20 years after the UK handed Hong Kong sovereignty over to China. In a long-lasting see-saw battle between Hong Kong's democrats and communist China, Hong Kong's local culture is being slowly eroded day by day. Theatre du Poulet re-creates the historical city of Hong Kong in miniature, using puppets made of recycled materials to show you how Hong Kong will be threatened, destroyed, and finally, extinct.
BRING OUR SHOW TO YOU
The Extinction of Hong Kongers represents an unique style of puppetry and storytelling that is crafted to combine 3 languages (English, Cantonese & Mandarin).
The show provides education value and a cultured perspective to anyone with a passion for history, languages and theatre.
Our shows are available to tour in schools, community events, organizations, festivals both nationally and internationally.
