The British Council proudly supports the Hong Kong Repertory Theatre to present the monodrama Fragments of Clay, created, directed and performed by the British playwright Ian Morgan.
How does one continue to satisfy his insatiable desire?
Jump off, and all will be gone along the wind
The deal is closed, the day is done, millions made.
Falling, the night is falling. A chair, a screen, a phone and the lights of the city below. All it would take is a single step – outside, onto the ledge, a gust of wind and he’d be away. Falling, falling like a fragment of clay.
Uniting physical performance, postdramatic theatre and electronica, “Fragments of Clay” is a solo piece exploring the hubris of being on the top and the inevitable fall that accompanies it.
He loves being high – in so many ways – the risk, the thrill of being on the very edge.
