Review- Red Poppies -Hong Kong Dance Company14-9-14

This isn’t the first time Hong Kong Dance Company has brought Red Poppies to the stage. It was first brought to life in 2007 and walked away with several Hong Kong Dance Alliance Awards. I was very excited to see it as I’ve not seen much Tibetan dance and always enjoy seeing something new. The story in Red Poppies centers around two brothers and their father who is a drug lord during the Opium wars. It’s a very interesting subject for a dance piece - something I’ve not seen explored before. The piece is based on a novel by Alai, apparently very famous in Chinese culture.

Nominees- Best Dance Show6-8-14

Dance shows are really difficult to create and produce. Don't underestimate the amount of talent and skill it takes to create a fabulous dance production. What's great about this year's nominees is that we have different styles and mediums of dance from break dancing to ballet to modern and pieces with small and large budgets. It's also nice to see world premiere shows and new choreographers nominated for their work in HK's world of dance. New work should be celebrated.

6 Mistakes Every Young Artist Makes22-7-14

There comes a time in everyone’s careers when they need to stop doing work for others for free. If you consider yourself a professional, you’re going to have to make a step and only accept paid work as an artist. (This can be hard, as paid gigs can be few and far between.) Here’s the thing: if you undervalue your talents, so will others. That doesn’t mean you need to be making a million dollars in a Broadway production… but it does mean taking a careful look at what kind of gigs you do and what kind of people you work with.

Review-The Buying Game 2.0-CCDC12-7-14

This revival of ‘The Buying Game’, first staged at the Cultural Centre’s Studio Theatre in April 2013, is also a reworking. (It’s also a one night stand affair, as part of CCDC’s 35th anniversary celebrations, so if you missed it last year and missed it again this time, you’re going to have to wait a while longer for a re-re-run viewing opportunity.)
