Guided tour for HKAAA members/volunteers on "Immersive Theatre: Lingering in Time"
(Chinese Version Only)
 
「從來沒有一種東西叫過去。只有時間的變奏,和變奏之後留下的痕跡。」《她和他的時間之流》

為了等待她/他,多少杯凍飲未曾喝掉便已化成無味的飲料,像我們早已忘掉藝穗會曾是一座巨型冰窖,如今都在時光中融化、漫溢成時間長流,只有用沉寂百年的生死記憶為羅盤,才能到達融點以前的時空:是每個人的戀愛逸事?是城市寓言?還是戰爭歷史?
 
這次演出由首位獲得德國「柏林戲劇節劇本市集獎2016」的華人編劇甄拔濤包辦概念創作及編劇,其得獎作《未來簡史》以時空錯置的方式探討人類文明與歷史,這次更讓整幢藝穗會百年大樓化身時光機,把錯亂的時空和「體驗劇場」(Immersive Theatre)的演出形式融合,帶領觀眾進行一次劇場冒險。
 
此劇亦找來香港演藝學院表演藝術教育主任李俊亮聯合導演。李氏為資深劇場導演和演員,近年專注劇場教育,其合著的《劇場的用家》更是劇場工作者必讀的工具書。美術指導則由獲得「香港藝術發展獎2016 - 藝術新秀奬(視覺藝術)」的劉學成擔任,以他詩意的美術觸覺,把觀眾拉進跳轉的時光之旅。
 
香港藝術行政人員協會邀請藝穗會項目總監廖淑敏講述今次於歷史古蹟策劃體驗劇場的挑戰及過程。參加者一同觀劇後,亦可參與演後座談會,由此劇導演分享心得。
 
日期:2017年11月25日(星期六)
時間:下午2時至4時30分
地點:藝穗會 (中環下亞厘畢道2號)

Testimony
Winning entry of Hong Kong Dance Awards 2007

“A powerful, full-length work based on the life of Shostakovich, combined dance with theatre and video to striking effect.” – South China Morning Post
 
It’s Top-notch Chinese choreographer Helen Lai and veteran theatre actor Lee Chun-chow decipher the music of Shostakovich together. Don’t miss out on the return of this seminal classic!
Regarded as a music giant during the Soviet period, Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich was a pioneer and spiritual leader of the music circle, giving voice to the revolutionary socialism at that time. Unfortunately, under Stalin’s orthodoxy, he became the enemy of the people and faced harsh political persecution. Feigning compliance with the government, Shostakovich embedded his resentment and rebellion against the government into his music.

Inspired by Testimony, the controversial memoirs of Shostakovich, Helen Lai presents an unprecedented fusion of dance, music, moving image and theatre. The Hong Kong outstanding actor  Lee Chun-chow returns to join in this pioneering dance theatre, playing the Russian composer, Shakespeare’s tragic characters as well as funny man in Chaplin’s slapstick style of silent movies, weaving between dance, music and drama.

Waiting For Godot – When Beijing Opera blends with Western Theater (17&18 November 2017)
“It takes a lot of courage for Chinese opera actors to join me in this production. They would have to unlearn the concepts they grew up with, exploring and transcending themselves, and this is a time-consuming and exhausting task. Additionally, after the performance, they would have to face the critique and assault from the field of traditional theatre.” Celebrated opera singer, thespian, dancer and occasional star of the silver screen, Wu Hsing-kuo and his renowned Contemporary Legend Theater (CLT) make a welcome return to the stage when they bring their visually stunning Chinese/Western crossover production of Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot to Hong Kong this November.
 
Waiting For Godot, produced by Contemporary Legend Theatre, is a 2017 Taiwan Culture Festival programme presented by Kwang Hwa Information Culture Centre.
Date and Time: 17 to 18 November 2017 (Friday and Saturday) 7:30pm
Venue: Auditorium, Kwai Tsing Theatre

No Past, No Future
CONSERVE TO SUBVERT
“Make it count!” – Laurence Loh
 
How often have you heard or used the phrase “Let him think that it’s his idea and you will win support for your cause”? This is covert subversion.
When you march in the streets and occupy a public space, you are viewed as troublemakers trying to influence public perceptions through airtime. This is overt subversion.
 
Let’s think of heritage conservation as a critical subversive activity.  Which approach will you take, covert or overt?
Laurence Loh, renowned as the “Heritage Crusader” of Penang, Malaysia, has always been looking for covert ways to engage and save Penang’s heritage for future generations.
His milestone restoration project, the Blue Mansion, received the UNESCO’s Most Excellent Project in the Asia Pacific Heritage Award in 2000 and kick-started the path towards the World Heritage Listing of George Town. Riding on the awareness it has created, now conservation is a mainstream activity in Penang.
 
A new model of subversion can be found in an amorphous advocacy group called the Penang Forum, a loose coalition of individuals and organisations, and has certain impact on political agendas. How does it work?
 
Speakers: Laurence Loh (Architect, Professor of Architecture and leading practitioner in Conservation | Malaysia)
