Music Performing Arts

Kollektiv International Totem in Hong Kong


Performance: “Baleen” (HK edition)

Kollektiv International Totem, a Zurich-based performing arts group, brings Baleen to Hong Kong.

Premiered in Switzerland in 2019, Baleen is an immersive music theatre that transforms the performing space into a whale-watching boat tour while audiences become “tourists”. The staging is a luxury watching tour that includes all the actual details like security procedures and a range of entertainments such as blockbuster movies, cooking shows, live concerts, sports tournaments, scientific documentation about whales etc. “The boat” will also send signals to call the whale to increase the chance of spotting the amazing sea creature. Accompanied by a dramatized storyline made up of fictional cliché, the audience will immerse themselves in the “whale-watching” experience and be surprised by the hidden storyline blurs the lines between drama and reality, leaving them questioning whether the events were real or just part of the show.

#musicismore is a brand-new music experience that challenges traditional notions of music performance. From mid-May to July, the public will have the opportunity to participate in a series of performances and exhibitions that explore the diverse possibilities of music.

PROJECT21st is a Hong Kong-based platform for international artistic experimentation, research and new commissions with a focus on music. They provide a space for artists to create, develop, and present new works in collaboration with other creatives from various disciplines. Their aim is to foster new and innovative approaches to music and artistic expression.
