【Highlight Recap】Mount Davis Site Guided Tour in The University of Chicago Hong Kong Campus
The guided tour was successfully held on 29 June 2019 (Sat). The University of Chicago Hong Kong Campus has been remarked as one of the heritage revitalization projects in recent years. Throughout the tour, docent showed us the architectural design, in balancing between nature conservation and historical site. We have gained a valuable experience to learn more about the Mount Davis Site, in particular about the historical value.
 
Once again, the Association would like to thank our co-presented partner – The University of Chicago Hong Kong Campus for their kind assistance and all our members/ volunteers’ participation. We look forward to seeing everyone again in the near future.

Rashomon (Re-run) – 10% discount offer
Four “truths” in a murder.
How can one be free from the dirt?
 
In a grove happens a murder. Four persons are involved: the ‘fierce’ bandit, the ‘unyielding’ samurai, the ‘loyal’ wife and a woodcutter who ‘witnessed the truth’. Each tells a contradictory story. Last year Chung Ying presented the drama adaptation with Best Director awardee of the Hong Kong Drama Awards Tony Wong as the director, winning Best Director (Tragedy/Drama), Best Lighting Design and Outstanding Production of the Year from the Hong Kong Drama Awards. It is definitely a play you should never miss.
