Recap on Arty Hour@HKAAA (Dec 2014) – Performances in Community Spaces (Centre St, Sai Ying Pun x Lucky Dragon Restaurant, Shek Kip Mei)
The first Arty Hour@HKAAA was held successfully at Boom on 19 December 2014. We were glad to see more than 20 familiar and new faces from local and overseas in our casual and warm gathering on a raining evening! Fellow arts practitioners showed up as we exchange ideas on the subject. Thank you to our special guests Ms Lucy Lu, Director of Kwang Hwa Information and Culture Centre and Mr Ong Yong Lock, Artistic Director of Unlock Dancing Plaza for sharing their opinions and experience on the peculiar charms and challenges in holding performances in community spaces. And of course to Boom’s support for a cozy place for our gathering!

Ms Lucy Lu shared her experience in organizing programmes in Sai Ying Pun as part of the Taiwan Culture Festival in November 2014. She recalled the process of brainstorming ideas of conducting arts projects related to communities in Hong Kong. With the impression that people from Taiwan are not as familiar with Hong Kong as Hongkongers are with Taiwan, she came up with the idea of holding performances that resonate with the history and people in local communities. Sai Ying Pun popped up as an old town where a pier and trading business used to thrive, just as Dadaocheng in Taiwan. Thus the idea of connecting the two communities in a series of performances with the theme “Voices Connected From Taiwan to Hong Kong, From Dadaocheng to Sai Ying Pun West Side Stories with A Cappella Singers”.

Unlock Dancing Plaza held a collaborative project on Tea Dance with the legendary Lucky Dragon Restaurant in Shek Kip Mei in September, and we were delighted to have their Artistic Director, Mr Ong Yong Luck to share with us their experience. Lucky Dragon Restaurant is a classic venue where people go for traditional tea dance. It was a bit of a challenge letting the owner of the restaurant understand the motive of the project and there was the fear that their arts project would hijack the venue initially, but it turned out that traditional tea dance and Unlock’s performance coexist organically on the dance floor. Mr Ong shared his observation that modern technology has caused city dwellers to depend on sensory excitement and forget to think and digest. He thinks that reconstruction deals with dancing, our body and the city at the same time, and it is from the heart one reconstructs oneself.
 
Painter Jackie also shared her recent project of painting on the wall of a factory building in Tsuen Wan West, which her passion wins over her acrophobia. It was an enjoyable and fruitful evening full of laughter and sharing despite the cold rain. Thank you again to all fellow arts practitioners who showed up and shared with us their! The next Arty Hour@HKAAA is scheduled for March 2015. Please stay tuned and we look forward to seeing you then!
