Ready to Wear
In the 1970s and 1980s, the garment industry was one of the backbones of Macao’s economy. Big and small garment factories spread across the city, attracting a large number of labourers – mainly female. By mid-to-late 1980s, the garment industry began to decline and was replaced by the gaming industry, which became the economic pillar of Macao. This performance, in the form of a documentary theatre, threads together the everyday stories of the garment workers and their labouring lives, and explores the life and the city of today through the memory of this generation.
