起源於2014年《第二個巴別塔:舞踏城寨》。今次演出既是延續,也是2017年以深水埗為主題的舞踏作品的前奏。

深水埗是香港其中一個最老最窮的社區。然而,我們身邊總有朋友、親人長輩與此地方,有關連,或是擁有回憶。很多基層人士和不同種族的朋友亦可以在這個地方找到他們生存的空間。鴨寮街、福華街、排檔和地攤就是好例子。

我們的創作由實地仔細觀察和聆聽開始。從中選擇最能觸動我們的人物和他們生命的狀態。

Babel laboratory is a group of four friends conducting some experiments in preparation for a full length piece in 2017. Inspired by an earlier collaboration about the Kowloon Walled City in 2014 called “The Second Tower of Babel” , this time around we have chosen to focus on the area of Shamshuipo, a working class district at the heart of Hong Kong with the lowest income per capita.

Our creative process began with following and observing people we found interesting in Shamshuipo area. We tried to figure out what it was about the characters we picked that made us curious, and in doing so, began to explore an area of interest, be it about memory, poverty, nature or hard work.
