In July 2005, from the euphoria of the Live 8 concerts, the G8 summit and the award of the 2012 Olympics, London was plunged into the horror of the 7/7 bombings. If the same thing happened in Hong Kong one day, what would it be like?

 

The coronavirus may have widened our social distance, but it does not stop the students and faculty of the Academy School of Drama from creating. Pornography marks an unprecedented attempt by the School, who has adapted this work by award-winning British playwright Simon Stephens into a seven-episode live online performance. The creative team restructures it like a television series and will present it on online videoconferencing platform. One episode per evening starting 25 May. Registered audience will be able to watch all the seven live performances, and will have access to the recordings of the full performance within a limited period of time.
