Review- La Verita (The Truth)- Hong Kong Arts Festival21-2-16

The Hong Kong Arts Festival is back! We are merely starting our dramatic journey in this 44th season and already its opening show is receiving three encores from its audience.

Review- The Vagina Monologues16-2-16

First things first. VAGINA is NOT a bad word. It is a biological term. A medical reality. A reproductive necessity. It is not perverted to say the word or acknowledge its presence. In fact, will all those who don't have a problem with the word in the audience, please raise their hands.

Review- Flawless- Udderbelly3-2-16

‘Chase the dream; not the competition’ (the dance collective’s motto) put a smile on even the notoriously hard to please Simon Cowell’s face, back in 2009, when Flawless fever hit the UK after their first appearance on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’. I’ve been a lover of them since then, and after attending their opening night at Udderbelly last night, I love them even more now!

Money and the Monster: the Problem with Art Galleries1-2-16

Now some will say that art is totally subjective, that there's no right or wrong, much less good or bad... But I personally, cannot stand what has happened to the art scene in Hong Kong recently... And let me explain to you why it sucks to be a painter in HK.
