“Duck and Cover” is a term that originates from a civil defence guide film produced by the US Government during the Cold War in the 1950s. It educated the people to be vigilant against atomic bomb attaches at all times. Despite the pandemic, Hong Kong people still have a desire for appetising and flavoursome cuisine. Gourmet shops featuring fine foods and diverse products have infiltrated into local communities and captivated the citizens.

Drawing on a similar theme of crisis and emergency prevention, Theatre Director Ata Wong, Chef & Visual Artist Cam Wong will demonstrate the cooking of a dish named ‘Duck and Cover’. The duo will also introduce various foods for consideration in times of emergency, so that audiences still have different choices in the face of disaster.

  • In Cantonese, for approximately 40 minutes.
  • Suitable for ages 12 or above.
  • Free admission, registration required.
