We are powerless against fate. We don’t have the strength to change what we lack inside. Even when we live in a materialistically rich world, we can’t be free from fear.


“All phenomena are illusionary and unsubstantial,” according to the Diamond Sutra.

How one sees the world depends on one’s viewpoint.

How one understands the emotional realm depends on awakening the senses.

Reset your life to allow for an infinity of unlimited possibilities.


Following his emotional letter to Hong Kong, Fragile Beauty, world-renowned Tibetan choreographer Sang Jijia has created a new work to examine the many faces of life. Sentimental Reality travels down the path of life, from the mundane to the monumental, facing life, death, and fate. Making this epic journey with Sang are dramaturg Tang Shu-wing, composer Dickson Dee, set designer Leo Cheung, costume designer Cindy Ho Pui-shan and lighting designer Low Shee Hoe. This will surely be the most magnificent work of the season.
