The Mariana Trench


Theatre Ronin (Hong Kong)

Click. The story starts with a young photographer. A chance encounter reunites him with a girl he admired at school. He tries to recapture lost years through this reconnection. Click. His Ma-jie (maidservant uniquely typical to past Hong Kong) admires the man downstairs who writes letters for her and others. Click. These parallel disconnected narratives, divided by a trench of loneliness, reveal the underwater emotional currents that can drown mankind. Amid fast-paced modernised Hong Kong, Theatre Ronin’s piece, like the camera, nostalgically shows the impossibility of hanging on to the past. Performed in Cantonese, English surtitles.
