【Highlight Recap】In Conversation with the Team of War Horse
The event was successfully held on 15 May 2019 (Wed). It was a great honor for the Association to invite Mr Gareth Aled, Resident Puppetry Director, War Horse and Mr Charlie Kenber, Resident Director, War Horse to give an in-depth look into the production behind the “theatrical magic” show. 

During the talk, Charlie revealed the interesting behind-the-scenes moments from this extraordinary performance. In order to deliver a vivid and life-like puppet horse figure on stage, Gareth also shared the technical problems they faced and how they solved the problems. He demonstrated the ideas of puppeteering the horse.
Besides, Charlie talked about the means of creating lifelike sound effects to reflect Joey's emotions. The professional puppeteers required to maintain a good physical fitness so as to imitate different body movements of a horse, such as eating, nickering, whinnying, screaming and snorting through their ground-breaking puppetry work.

HKAAA would like to thank Lunchbox Theatrical Productions Limited, as well as the War Horse cast and creative team for the dialogue session once again.

The 6th Hong Kong Touch Art Festival: In Search for Invisible Memory
The 6th Hong Kong Touch Art Festival will be held by Centre for Community Cultural Development (CCCD), from 18th to 26th of May at Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre. The theme of this year's festival will be “In Search for Invisible Memory”. With touchable artworks and different non-visual settings at the venue, visitors are invited to experience the memories and history of Hong Kong through artists’ creation.

We use our sense of touch on a daily basis, yet its possibility as a medium for art appreciation is often neglected, especially in the visually dominated culture. Touch art is an art form that tries to embody those possibilities. It embraces inclusion and invites visually impaired people to enjoy art and even create their own artworks. Visitors are encouraged to put aside their usual art appreciation experience and use other senses to explore the exhibition “In Search for Invisible Memories”.

This exhibition not only allows one to take a glimpse into the lives of the persons with visual impairment, but also shows that art and tolerance is really the way to understand Hong Kong and authenticate our common experiences.
Exhibition: 18th – 26th May 2019 (Closed on Tuesday)
Time: 10:00am – 9:00pm
Venue: Exhibition Hall, Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre (7A Kennedy Road, Central, HK)
*Free Admission*

HK Dance “Red Poppies” (4th Run)
Adapted from the eponymous novel, which won China’s most prestigious book prize established by writer Mao Dun, the grand dance drama Red Poppies draws from folk dance traditions of the Tibetan region where the book is set. Featuring Tibetan music and singing as well as colourful tribal costumes, Red Poppies is a testament to the changes of time, the destruction of old world orders and the coming of a new age. It is also a meditation on karma, on good and evil through the Tibetan culture and traditions.

Dunhuang – Resonance of Silk Road, Past and Present – HKGDE 1st anniversary Concert
Dunhuang – Resonance of Silk Road Past and Present is the 1st anniversary concert of the Hong Kong Gaudeamus Dunhuang Ensemble. The concert is themed around Dunhuang culture. All pieces are original works composed by our two resident composers, inspired by murals and Buddha statues from the Mogao Grottoes. Some materials for the compositions were even taken from the pipa manuscripts discovered in the Dunhuang Library Cave, and will be performed by replicas of ancient instruments.
This concert aims to inherit the culture of Dunhuang through music, inviting the audience to a musical dialogue with the past and present that showcases the unique parallel between Hong Kong and Dunhuang, and leaves a footnote for the contemporary Silk Road culture.

Knowledge of Design Week (KODW) 2019: Designing Digital Futures
With ever-changing digital technology catalysing smart cities of the future, the key to creating a smart yet liveable city lies in the application of human-centred design thinking. Building on the theme “Design for Liveability” last year which captured the attention of the industry and the general public, KODW 2019 will continue to inspire new ideas and discussion, looking into how human-centred design serves as a bridge between “digital technology” and “humanity” as we explore future design and urban developments. The theme also echoes the HKSAR Government’s vision of turning Hong Kong into a world-leading smart city.
KODW 2019 is a week-long curated programme and will be held from 17th to 21st June this year. KODW fosters cross-disciplinary learning and exchange through 3 thematic forums, 7 interactive workshops, an InnoDesign Leadership CEO Forum and a Roundtable focusing on public service innovation, providing an invaluable knowledge-sharing platform that connects global field experts, policy makers, industry leaders and forward-thinking minds. It engages different stakeholders in a multi-level dialogue on how design can solve complex challenges of our society. Internationally-renowned industry experts and business leaders from around 10 cities across 4 continents will gather together in Hong Kong to explore the three cornerstones of future urban life: “Liveable Smart City”, “Future Retail & Lifestyle” and “Digital Health”.
