Enjoy Physical Theater Festival's free virtual programming from today, July 14 to July 21

This year Physical Theater Festival is offering a virtual viewing of "What You See is Not You" by Theatre de la Feuille (Hong Kong), a conversation with the show's creator and AD for Theatre de la Feuille, Ata Wong and the 5th edition of our International panel: The State of the Performing Arts with Rucera Sethal & Miguel Oyarzun.

What You See Is Not You

A Surrealist Non Verbal Physical Comedy 

by Theatre de la Feuille (Hong Kong)



Peering into the world of the Belgian surrealist philosopher painter René Magritte - the man behind that green apple, the white-clothed faceless lovers, and the man standing in front of a mirror whose reflection strangely shows him from behind — a theatre-infused creation is born.


What you will see on stage is the encounter between the senselessness bred from a dream, the bizarre and the absurd. Get ready to toss aside what we call normal and play to our bodies' content.​​​

Available for Free from July 14 to 21                                                                        Download Program Here
