Is Online Ticketing Right For You?13-2-15

Traditional ticketing in Hong Kong has its limits. There are expensive fees to pass onto your audience members. The red tape to get through the process as an organizer is arduous. They put limits on what can and cannot appear on your posters. The websites for traditional ticketing in Hong Kong are not very user friendly and most importantly it can up to three months to get your money back as an artist from the event. (How are you supposed to make a living with that?)

Review-Salty Roast Crane-CCDC13-12-14

Salty Roast Crane opens with one of the most beautiful stage pictures I’ve ever seen. Tonal beats play rather than music, fog rolls in, a giant egg glows upstage left and the dancers hold frozen poses. Some of the poses were incredibly difficult and left the audience wondering when they would begin to move. They certainly couldn’t hold both legs in the air forever, could they? They held this frozen pose for five minutes or so—- but it felt much longer. The audience anticipation was growing. What was going to come next after such a magnificent opening moment?

Review-Tear Gas-Brave Heart Theatre20-11-14

I wasn’t planning on being the critic for Tear Gas. Although I’ve been deeply encompassed in the political events happening in Hong Kong the past 51 days, I wanted a Hong Kong perspective on a show that described itself as a “satirical view on the events of Occupy Central”. Unfortunately, there were schedule clashes with the local critics and I was the one who was left to cover the event. How would a foreigner feel about a show written about Occupy Central from the perspective of a domestic helper? It was like looking at a box inside a box. Though not planned, I’m glad I got to see the show and that I was opened up to a new perspective on the events at #umhk.
