Century-old Dreams of a Fishing Harbour -
Episode II. Nightmares

While you dislike the history given to you by someone else, why not create your own?

Being the second part of a trilogy, Century-old Dreams of A Fishing Harbour - Episode II. Nightmares, continues to have the mythical merman figure Luting as the protagonist to tell the story of Hong Kong between 1941 and 1997, from Japanese occupation, Young Plan, 67 riot, Sino-British negotiation, Tiananmen Massacre, political reform, to the handover. It begins with the entrance of one army, and ends with the entrance of another.
In the eyes of a fish, the mess of history seems to be much simpler. Yet in the process the head of a fish has also evolved into the head of a human being. While the world around him is changing rapidly, has Luting ever realized that he should take his fate into his own hands? How has he realized it? Why hasn’t he? What chances has he squandered?


British actor, Nicholas Atkinson, won the Outstanding Actor Award of the 8th Hong Kong Theatre Libre with his performance in Century-old Dreams of a Fishing Harbour Ep.II. Nightmares.  2016.5.11
