Description:

“In this story, there is a choice to be made:escape it or face it. Is it still me that’s stubborn? Or the choice?”

We believe one’s feeling and experience is what’s real. Discoveries of the self from deep within, where one feels life from its most genuine impulse.

“Pardon” was commissioned and premiered at the 2015 Hong Kong Arts Festival. In 2015-2018, Pardon Has toured in Macau, Korea, Amsterdam, Gran Canaria, Cadiz and Hannover.
