#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.
