Co-presented by the Hong Kong Arts Festival and The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, “No Limits” strives to create a barrier-free environment enabling artists and audiences to explore and promote inclusiveness through the arts. This year, “No Limits” will present three film screenings at Tai Kwun. 

Two of them are produced by Back to Back Theatre, the winner of the International Ibsen Award 2022. In short film ODDLANDS, the company’s much-heralded debut screen production, a post-apocalyptic future not so far removed from our own is explored, along with the human dilemmas it brings. Watch out as well for the company’s first feature-length production, SHADOW. The brilliant black comedy examines the dangers posed by artificial intelligence and people’s response to this challenge.

In imperfect, theatre director and wheelchair user Regan Linton and renowned documentary-maker Brian Malone kick out stereotypes to capture the creativity of 20-plus actors with diverse physical, cognitive, intellectual and emotional abilities. The multi-award-winning film is centred around Phamaly Theatre Company, the actors’ professional performing arts group, and preparations for a rip-roaring version of the popular musical Chicago. Following cast members as they attend auditions, perform in the production’s premiere, and participate in post-performance reflection, the documentary is both riveting and revealing.

About “No Limits”

“No Limits”, first launched in 2019 and co-presented by the Hong Kong Arts Festival and The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, aims to create a barrier-free environment and explore and promote inclusiveness and understanding through the arts.

Art is not bound by one’s ability but limited only by one’s imagination. With the fifth “No Limits” to be held in 2023, you are invited to experience a series of fascinating programmes which cover music, dance, theatre and film by international and Hong Kong artists of different abilities that defy constraints and boundaries.

The 2023 “No Limits” will present various accessible, in-venue and online programmes for our artists and audiences to convene face-to-face and virtually, and to share the message of inclusiveness in the arts with society.

The project also invests heavily in arts education for young people; diverse arts experience are designed to nurture students’ interest in the arts, and to enable them to share the joy of the arts together with people of different abilities.
