The Journey is a HKAF co-commissioned programme



The lobby will open 30 minutes in advance of each performance—participants should check in as early as possible to prepare for optimal set up.

The Journey will be streamed through a custom web interface, with the audience appearing on camera for part of the show. The high-definition audio and visuals are best enjoyed on an individual basis. Your household may watch together; however, we recommend a single viewer per screen. Audiences’ cameras must be on for the entire performance.
Audience members whose bookings have been successful will receive three messages and videos in advance of the performance. These contain prompts and information about events to take place during the show. Be on the lookout for those prompts at the email address you provide.

To best experience the show, a desktop or laptop computer and headphones with built-in microphones are strongly recommended. Mobile devices are not recommended.
