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. 2019-03-27 19:04:00 http://hkeld.com/articles/view/review-lies-hong-kong-arts-festival Wed, 24 Apr 2019 00:44:12 GMT Review- Dressed by The Night by Silvia Perez Cruz- Hong Kong Arts Festival http://hkeld.com/articles/view/review-dressed-by-the-night-by-silvia-perez-cruz-hong-kong-arts-festival 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". 2019-03-25 11:02:00 http://hkeld.com/articles/view/review-dressed-by-the-night-by-silvia-perez-cruz-hong-kong-arts-festival Wed, 24 Apr 2019 00:44:12 GMT Review- Discord of Discourse- KrisP. Production http://hkeld.com/articles/view/review-discord-of-discourse-krisp-production 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. 2019-03-23 14:33:00 http://hkeld.com/articles/view/review-discord-of-discourse-krisp-production Wed, 24 Apr 2019 00:44:12 GMT Review- Home- Hong Kong Arts Festival http://hkeld.com/articles/view/review-home-hong-kong-arts-festival 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. 2019-03-18 12:03:00 http://hkeld.com/articles/view/review-home-hong-kong-arts-festival Wed, 24 Apr 2019 00:44:12 GMT Review- The Nutcracker, by John Neumeier- Hong Kong Arts Festival http://hkeld.com/articles/view/review-the-nutcracker-by-john-neumeier-hong-kong-arts-festival When I first heard that The Nutcracker was going to be shown at The Hong Kong Arts Festival this year I felt a mix of excitement (as I never get tired of seeing that production) and a tinge of curiosity to see how such a Christmas-oriented show would fit into a springtime schedule. 2019-03-18 11:55:00 http://hkeld.com/articles/view/review-the-nutcracker-by-john-neumeier-hong-kong-arts-festival Wed, 24 Apr 2019 00:44:12 GMT Review- Madame White Snake- Hong Kong Arts Festival http://hkeld.com/articles/view/review-madame-white-snake-hong-kong-arts-festival Madame White Snake, composed by Zhou Long to an English-language libretto by Cerise Lim Jacobs and one of the few western operas directly informed by China and with direct Chinese creative input, has just been given its Hong Kong premiere at the 2019 Hong Kong Arts Festival. 2019-03-14 15:29:00 http://hkeld.com/articles/view/review-madame-white-snake-hong-kong-arts-festival Wed, 24 Apr 2019 00:44:12 GMT Artist of The Month- March- Chloe Grimmett http://hkeld.com/articles/view/artist-of-the-month-march-chloe-grimmett Stylus Productions return to the stage after a year hiatus with Educating Rita. Playing the peppery and funny Rita is writer Chloe Grimmett. 2019-03-06 14:42:00 http://hkeld.com/articles/view/artist-of-the-month-march-chloe-grimmett Wed, 24 Apr 2019 00:44:12 GMT Review- Dark Room- KrisP. Production http://hkeld.com/articles/view/review-dark-room-krisp-production I’ll admit, I was dubious to whether I would enjoy a one-woman show about what I (wrongly) assumed would be someone complaining about their privileged life. Instead, I was engaged, my thoughts were provoked and I felt compassion. 2019-03-06 09:23:00 http://hkeld.com/articles/view/review-dark-room-krisp-production Wed, 24 Apr 2019 00:44:12 GMT Review- 887 Ex-Machina, by Robert Lepage - Hong Kong Arts Festival http://hkeld.com/articles/view/review-887-exmachina-by-robert-lepage-hong-kong-arts-festival How do we define theatre? When it comes to mind, we typically, if not in fact almost usually, think about basically the same thing: Stage, curtains, lights, script, characters, actors/director, etc. 2019-03-04 10:31:00 http://hkeld.com/articles/view/review-887-exmachina-by-robert-lepage-hong-kong-arts-festival Wed, 24 Apr 2019 00:44:13 GMT Review- Tannhäuser by Richard Wagner- Oper Leipzig & the Hong Kong Arts Festival http://hkeld.com/articles/view/review-tannhuser-by-richard-wagner-oper-leipzig-the-hong-kong-arts-festival Opera is, almost by definition, musical theatre. Sometimes, the emphasis is on the “musical” and sometimes, as with the Calixto Bieito setting of Richard Wagner’s Tannhäuser performed at the Hong Kong Arts Festival by Oper Leipzig, on the “theatre”. 2019-03-04 09:58:00 http://hkeld.com/articles/view/review-tannhuser-by-richard-wagner-oper-leipzig-the-hong-kong-arts-festival Wed, 24 Apr 2019 00:44:13 GMT
