THE LU-TINGS
Hong Kong Version

Around 2000 years ago, in the area around the Yellow River and the Yangtze River, at the time when brutal fighting broke out among the warlords, there lived on this strip of land at the southern tip, a half-man, half-fish merpeople called the Lu-tings. For thousands of years, they have been living like this, listening to the waves thrashing on the rocks, as if this was all there was - the sound of the waves and a few lonesome crabs scurrying on the beach in the moonlight. One day the Hans arrived and they were so oppressed that they revolted which ended in a violent repression and genocide.

This is a story of the mythical ancestors of Hong Kong. It is also the story of the Hong Kong people.

Theatre Horizon's creation of The Lu-Tings premiered in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August, 2014. It was highly regarded by the local audience and critics alike. The Lu-Tings was chosen to be one of 30 theatre performances to be archived at the National Library of Scotland by the Fringe Performance Archive.
