About This Project

None of Your Business was Y-Space’s inaugural production in 1995, and was revived in 2005 and 2013. It was a dance theatre production that also featured installation and video art. It explored the sense of unease in Hong Kong city life, specifically the mood of loneliness and feeling lost as 1997 approached.

“While communication technologies bloom, it has become harder to understand one another. The space for privacy shrinks, while distances between people grow. Sexuality becomes pervasive, but is it rooted in affection? Flesh, money, pleasure? Prejudices and violence reveal the dark side of modern life. People in a modern city … a pretence of harmony without warmth, of strength even as they are escaping, of mirth which returns to a sad, sad loneliness. An apocalypse is near. As 1997 approaches, what space is left for their loves, relationships, inner lives, and years of drifting sentiments… where will they arrive at?”
