Some subtle emotions are unrecognisable, but real

A girl taking the urban jungle for playground, a husband unsure of his masculinity, and a perfectionist business woman. Every day, every night, they sway between criticism and forgiveness, living and survival, trying to find a haven of peace in the city.

With a title derived from the nine tones of Cantonese, Nine Soundscapes is a multimedia soundscape theatre which centres on spiritual issues like loneliness, existence, lust and identity, and integrates physical movement, live music and theatre. Director Tam Chi Chun, composer Mok Kin Yee Raymond, several actors from different backgrounds, a saxophonist, a huqin player and a percussionist collectively create nine everyday life episodes about the intricate emotions of modern people. This piece is a collage of love and hate, and depicts the rhythm of the ever-changing city.
