This November, 53 talented young local dancers and actors take the stage to present Only a Girl – a bittersweet LGBT+ tale about a girl’s road to self-discovery. Written and directed by HKYAF’s founder Lindsey McAlister, Only a Girl begins with a chance encounter on the MTR that turns 15-year-old Jazz’s predictable world upside down.

“What I enjoyed was being able to work closely with the youth choreographers – the youngest was only seven years old! For many of them it was their first official HKYAF project, and you could see them observe and absorb the level of professionalism our director Lindsey expects. It was really satisfying to see their growth!”

#hashtag – Live Recording for Schools

Last November, HKYAF presented the gripping original production #hashtag live on stage. Through theatre, dance, music and video the performance brings to life the powerful and sometimes deceptive world of social media, and shines a light on issues facing many young people today, such as cyber bullying, abortion, suicide and self-harm, that are often considered taboo. Written and directed by Lindsey McAlister, the sold-out production featured a cast of 25 of the most talented youth actors and dancers in Hong Kong and was a resounding success, with much positive feedback from the audience, cast members and parents. We are now pleased to offer a free-of-charge recording of the live performance of #hashtag to schools interested in sharing it with their students. Apply now and receive a link via email to download and/or stream the recording. Notes for Schools * This show contains mature themes, including cyber bullying, abortion, suicide and self-harm and may cause emotional distress. Teachers should watch the recording in advance to ensure that it is suitable for their students * Suitable for ages 10 and above * Performed in English without subtitles * Running time approx. 100 minutes Synopsis Five teenagers join an elite chatroom, eager and ready to impress. They click. They swipe. They post. They laugh. But soon they discover that not everything is quite what it seems.

"If you don’t understand, don’t be shy to ask! There are so many different ways to work things out, you need to be creative and put in 100% to get the best results. Don’t be quick to criticise someone else’s way of dealing with problems – see things from their perspective, understand their intentions and learn from experience. And always show your passion!"
