SPITFIRE COMPANY – UNDERDOGS
In Hong Kong, five book publishers have been kidnapped by the Chinese secret police after printing stories about the wives of high-ranking officials . At the same time, a black dog, who escaped from a secret biology lab striving to create a new military unit, and a lonely boy, who got lost on his way to school, meet on the shore of a lake. A coincidence will bring them together, and another one will turn them into the main adversaries of the all-powerful secret police. Will the two be able to deliver a message from one of the kidnapped to an independent Hong Kong newspaper?
A family performance combines fiction with documentary theater and the genres of live-cinema with comics, live music and rap, object theater and physical action. The mobile projection screen is an unforgettable experience, which changes with each new scene, evoking the comic genre.
