Review- L'Orphelin- Théâtre de la Feuille20-9-19

Théâtre de la Feuille brings us the perfect example of the traditional being completely transformed.


Review- The Odyssey Of Little Dragon- Contemporary City Dance Company 18-8-19

Hong Kong has always had a soft spot for Kung Fu legend Bruce Lee; countless have been the movies, exhibitions and artworks dedicated to him, and this time Contemporary City Dance Company pays homage to the ultimate Kung Fu master by honouring his art through an immersive journey called The Odyssey Of Little Dragon, showing at Shatin Town Hall.


Review- The Waiting Room- A Common Collective 11-6-19

I did not mean to attend this show, let alone write the review, and I confess that this may have been because I did not hear anything at all about the show in the first place: not until the evening of its second and last performance, that is.


Review- Don Giovanni- Opera Hong Kong 8-6-19

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Don Giovanni might well be the best opera ever written. Opera Hong Kong’s recent production, with mostly young casts that leaned strongly on local singers, gave a good indication as to why.


Review - Hong Kong Delights: City Contemporary Dance Company & Mr.Quartet8-6-19

I have always loved contemporary dance and since my arrival in Hong Kong, I have followed the City Contemporary Dance Company and their works. I especially love when they collaborate with others to create something new and fresh.


Review- The Pillowman- Eclectic Theatre 9-5-19

Eclectic Theatre is on stage this week with its first theatrical debut, The Pillowman. The show the new group has decided to present as its first is a controversial one. Written by Irish playwright Martin McDonagh in 2003, The Pillowman narrates the imprisonment of fictional writer Katurian in a nameless, totalitarian state.


Review- Lies (£¥€$)- Hong Kong Arts Festival27-3-19

The following is not a review. It is a chronicle of £¥€$ (Lies), by the Belgian group Ontoerend Goed. The play follows the company’s tradition of creating experiences as apart of their expression and their understanding of the world.


Review- Dressed by The Night by Silvia Perez Cruz- Hong Kong Arts Festival25-3-19

The title song of singer-songwriter Sílvia Pérez Cruz’s recent concert at Hong Kong Arts Festival begins "Pinto les notes d’una havanerablava com l’aigua d’un mar antic,Blanca d’escuma, dolça com l’aire,gris de gavines, daurada d’imatges vestida de nit: I paint the notes of a habanera, blue as the water of the antique sea, white from the foam, as sweet as the air, with the grey of gulls, gilded with pictures, dressed by the night".


Review- Discord of Discourse- KrisP. Production23-3-19

If you’re looking for an ‘outside of the box’ performance, this performance delivers. KrisP. Productions have produced another original, thought-provoking and intelligent contemporary performance.


Review- Home- Hong Kong Arts Festival18-3-19

Every so often we as theatregoers come across a production that seems almost too deep to comprehend, yet so simple ‘a caveman could do it’. This would be the case for GeoffSobelle’s immaculate production of Home, just staged at the Lyric Theatre space at the Hong Kong APA.
