Introducing Post-Perception/Transcendence- CCDC We checked out CCDC's event POP UP on March 17 on a glorious, sunny day. We've had the chance to chat with artistic director Willy Tsao and watch the wonderful dancers in action. 2017-03-23 14:21:00 Fri, 24 Mar 2017 04:11:55 GMT Review- Dream Of The Red Chamber- Hong Kong Arts Festival Opera critics are usually only actually called upon to review a performance; the works themselves are for the most part well-known, sometimes to the point of ennui. On this occasion, however, the opera itself is brand-new. “Dream of the Red Chamber”, performed this weekend at the Arts Festival, debuted only last September at the San Francisco Opera. 2017-03-20 09:42:00 Fri, 24 Mar 2017 04:11:55 GMT Review-The Beauty Queen of Leenane- Hong Kong Arts Festival Set in the Irish countryside in the mid-nineties, The Beauty Queen of Leenane is a dark comedy written by Martin McDonagh and presented in Hong Kong by Irish touring production Druid. 2017-03-17 09:57:00 Fri, 24 Mar 2017 04:11:55 GMT Promo video- Post-Perception/Transcendence- CCDC City Contemporary Dance Company (CCDC) is proud to present a new production Post-Perception/Transcendence from 31 March to 1 April 2017 at Grand Theatre, Hong Kong Cultural Centre.

They have written essays, memoirs, reviews and articles on her work; she has inspired dancers and musicians; and in 2011 Win Wenders made her a tribute through the Academy nominated documentary: Pina. 2017-03-14 12:42:00 Fri, 24 Mar 2017 04:11:55 GMT Review- Emir Kusturika and The No Smoking Orchestra- Hong Kong Arts Festival As I walked into the auditorium of The Hong Kong Cultural Centre the other night, I found myself physically and mentally exhausted after a very intense day. I kept asking myself how on earth would I possibly be fit to review a show if I struggle to walk straight? As it was too late to pull out I put myself together and walked into the Concert Hall. 2017-03-10 12:41:00 Fri, 24 Mar 2017 04:11:55 GMT Review: Floating Family- Hong Kong Arts Festival It’s Hong Kong Arts Festival and the hype is particularly high for Loon Man-Hong’s Floating Family trilogy. An epic undertaking, Loon has penned three distinct plays following the lives of one Hong Kong family over 20 years before and after Handover. Following all three produced this year we immerse ourselves in the family’s world, but each stands alone as a snapshot into a decade, and its zeitgeist. 2017-03-09 11:49:00 Fri, 24 Mar 2017 04:11:55 GMT Artist of the Month- March- Joshua Wolper Our Artist of the Month is Joshua Wolper, resident actor and director at Shakespeare4All. Joshua chats with us about his latest project, The Light Dragon. Exploring his fascination with the old Kowloon Walled City and its history, the play brings together the past and the present, fantasy and reality, theatre and motion pictures. 2017-03-08 18:07:00 Fri, 24 Mar 2017 04:11:55 GMT Review- Franky- AFTEC For years, AFTEC has done a splendid job in Hong Kong promoting theatre and involving the youth in it. This year as part of their program “From Page to Stage”, they bring Franky, a reinterpretation of Merry Shelly’s Frankenstein. The company will have done 29 performance to schools and two public shows, making theatre more accessible to Hong Kong middle and high school students. 2017-03-07 12:39:00 Fri, 24 Mar 2017 04:11:55 GMT Review- Les Ballets Jazz de Montreal- Hong Kong Arts Festival The first thing I noticed when I looked at the programme was how "recent" the works will be presented are. The oldest was created in 2012, and the latest was just created last year. Now that is very exciting! I have never seen Canada's Les Ballets Jazz de Montreal before, but definitely, like what the company name evokes and was looking forward to seeing it. 2017-03-04 10:43:00 Fri, 24 Mar 2017 04:11:55 GMT
