Cart Noodle Show / Hybrid of Game Show and Storytelling Night (2021)

Manifested as an online interactive game show, “Cart Noodle Cart” is a new work by the London-based Hong Kong Trio ShumGhostJohn, in collaboration with musician Angela Wai Nok Hui and designer Jeffrey Choy. 


The show looks into the history of Cart Noodle, a popular street food that was created by Mainland Chinese refugees in Hong Kong during the 1950s. With the new BNO visa opens for application for Hongkongers to move to Britain, we tell the story of a new wave of contemporary migrants with fake myths and children’s games.


ShumGhostJohn, as hosts, compete with the participants, who form a team themselves, by presenting challenges that hinders them in gaining a higher score. With an in-achievable goal, the show aims at creating a time-limited target for the team to hit collectively, yet understanding that there is something lurking in the background, not allowing them to win.

"Since most audiences will involve themselves with participation enthusiastically, it was interesting to note how disillusionment quickly set in." - Nick Swyft, Mark Aspen Reviews
