GPO BOX No. 211

nominated for the ZKB Recognition Award

DAS Theatre / Theaterspektakel Zurich

2023 /2024

Two friends write letters to each other. While one lives in freedom, the other is in prison for taking part in pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong. Across prison walls and two continents, they share everyday situations, talk about dreams and the restrictions they experience. Because political topics are censored, they learn to read between the lines and develop a poetic way of writing.


GPO Box No.211 is the address to which they send their letters. At the same time, it is the title of a journey that invites a visual reflection on topics such as freedom of expression, isolation and communication through the lens of object theater.
