“1357” by Théâtre de la Feuille focuses on the symmetric and the unbalanced in life


18th January 2021 – (Hong Kong) The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) has launched the free online programme “1357” by Théâtre de la Feuille.

 “1357” focuses on the symmetric and the unbalanced in life. Making use of four creative elements in the daily training routine and artistic creation of physical theatre, including “mask”, “body”, “object” and “wire work”, this programme consists of four short video clips created with snapshots which aim to explore the virtually infinite possibilities between theatre and movie making.

 Each video covers a performance clip and a behind-the-scenes featurette. The first episode is now available for viewing online; the remaining three episodes will be launched later. Details are as follows:

Episode 1   Flying Bird

Episode 2   The Tempest

Episode 3   Bubbles

Episode 4   Feet in the Air and Head on the Ground

 Founded in 2010 in Paris by Wong Chun-tat, Théâtre de la Feuille is currently based in Hong Kong. Wong was one of very few graduates of Chinese descent to have completed a two-year introductory course and the laboratory of movement study at École Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq. In addition, Wong further attained the Jacques Lecoq teaching certification in 2018 after completion of the school’s three-year teaching course.

 Théâtre de la Feuille is made up of performers from different countries and backgrounds who diligently polish their craft by receiving regular training devised by the company in order to grow as a team that is collectively fluent in self-expression and abundant in creative energy. The artistic approach of the company blends elements of East and West, where the Western pedagogy of Jacques Lecoq interweaves with the traditional arts of the East. Not only does Théâtre de la Feuille produce high-quality theatre that experiments with a diverse range of genres and topics, it also aims to glean as much overseas touring experience as possible. It has undertaken some 180 overseas tours, performing in over 80 locations in the United States, France, Italy, Croatia, Japan, Korea and the Mainland.
