The Journey is a HKAF co-commissioned programme
Because the immersive high-definition visuals and stereo soundscape are essential to experience The Journey, the artist recommends there be just a single viewer with headphones on each screen. Your household may watch together; however, only one person may interact with Scott Silven during the performance and that participant may not change at any point.
On Ticket Purchase
You can buy your ticket on the Ticketflap via the HKAF website hk.artsfestival.org.
When purchasing tickets, you are required to provide the audience member’s name and email address for each ticket. Please note that the information above will be used for sending you related programme information and to verify your admission. ONE unique email address for each ticket purchased.
What will I receive after buying a ticket?
You will receive an email notification of ticket purchase.
Audience members whose bookings have been successful will receive three emails in advance of the performance. These contain a confirmation of ticket purchase, information about events to take place during the show and the link to access the performance. If, by the day before the show, you have not yet received any emails from us, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is this advanced content I keep hearing about?
Upon purchasing your ticket, you will receive an email from us with a link to discover special advance content from Scott Silven. We encourage you to engage with this content prior to the show to be prepared for The Journey. It should only take about 20 minutes! If you are unable to watch the pre-event footage in the email with the advanced content, don’t worry. You will still be able to enjoy the event.
Before Joining the Online Performance
Do I need to set up anything in my home?
Mentalism requires that Scott be able to see and hear you clearly. No mood lighting —please turn on your lights! Be sure to do the exclusive pre-show activities in the advanced content and have your object of meaning, two sheets of paper (about A4 size) and a thick marker nearby for the performance.

Do I have to use headphones?
We recommend using stereo headphones to avoid possible feedback problems from speakers.
May I screencast to a TV?
Screencasting the performance to a TV is not recommended because of possible feedback problems from speakers.

Yes. All participants will leave their cameras on for the entire performance.
To take part, audience members must consent to allow the staff of this performance to access their microphone and camera for its duration.
Photography, screenshots, recording or reproduction of any kind during the performance are strictly prohibited.
