Room 2048

Room 2048 (2048號房) — a dream machine for the Cantonese diaspora. In digital light and smoke, we pursue a history that is not ours. A living past, a dying future, and a stillborn present. We will lie. We will cheat. We will spend a thousand years here.

Room 2048 is a multi-media dance theatre work for three performers with live-generated electronic sound and projection. It was originally conceived as a companion piece/sequel to NINEEIGHT. Room 2048 was premiered from April 11th - 15th, 2017 at the Firehall Arts Centre; it will be touring to Montreal and Kitchener, Fall 2017 

project lead: Natalie Tin Yin Gan
created by: Hong Kong Exile (Natalie Tin Yin Gan, Milton Lim, Remy Siu), Michelle Lui, and Alex Tam
mentor: Lee Su-Feh

Room 2048 has been made possible due to generous space residencies provided by the Gateway Theatre, The Cultch, and Firehall Arts Centre, along with funding from Canada Council for the Arts and the BC Arts Council.
