I Want Euthanasia 《我要安樂死》
A typical family in Hong Kong
A typical family in Hong Kong, a paralysed patient, their lives go on – heads down, senseless, dragging.
One day, the paralyzed patient request publically to end his life with pride. Shocked by the news, his family tries to persuade him to embrace life, stay positive and face the future. He persisted – typing on the keyboard with a chopstick in his mouth, he wrote his only wish: ‘I want Euthanasia’.
After several tours in Europe and Asia, Théâtre de La Feuille is heading home to perform I Want Euthanasia, a moving piece of poetic and powerful physical theatre based on Tang Siu Pun’s autobiography “I Want Euthanasia”. Their thoughtful and inspiring performance raises a universal question about the value of the freedom of choice.
