The Flying Roast Goose

Tuesday 3 June 2014 - Saturday 21 June 2014

A story about food, survival and hope, told through the eyes of a Cantonese chef and her pet goose and set in war-torn Hong Kong during the Japanese occupation in the 1940s.

Using physical theatre, puppetry and object manipulation, this original piece delves into a dark chapter of Hong Kong’s history with playfulness and kitchen utensils.

Suitable for ages 12+
