Meniscus is Ghost and John’s new multimedia ensemble work; a cross-continental collaboration project, an immersive interactive event and a gentle outcry of urgency towards the social, environmental and political instability of our times.
The project sparks from the ongoing fight for freedom and basic human rights in Ghost and John’s home city, Hong Kong. 26 artists across 4 continents gather and question what artists can do to face these urgent issues happening in every corner of this world. With digital technology, we invite the audience to get up close and investigate the happenings in our world.
