The Year of the Cello – Theatre Passe Muraille & Music Picnic
Presented by The CULTCH Re/Play Series
co-created by Marjorie Chan & Njo Kong Kie


“The Cello, relentless, eternal, infinite in its beauty. I want to drown in its sound”

Adapted from the world premiere stage production, this audio work has been created with binaural sound to give a surround listening experience of the play. Wen and her friend Li-An are forever changed by their encounter with the Cellist, whose music unlocks all that was left unspoken. Co-created by Marjorie Chan and Njo Kong Kie, The Year of the Cello is told poetically, alongside cello music culminating in a lament for loves lost, and a Hong Kong that once was.

We recommend listening with high-quality headphones, in a quiet place, or maybe even by the water.
