“Arts Administrator 101” Series ╴Community Arts Engagement in Design Thinking
Presented by: Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association
Co-organizer: Hong Kong Design Centre
 
Design Thinking is a process of creative problem solving, with an emphasis to focus on the people they are creating for. Design thinking has been increasingly embraced by the world of business, social creative industry and education over the last decades. If the model is adaptable into different business, can we use it to design our community arts programme?
 
HKAAA is happy to have Ms. Sam Lam, Director of Business Development and Projects from Hong Kong Design Centre (HKDC), to kick off our 2019/20 “Arts Administrators 101 Series”. Sam will lead the workshop and go through the design thinking process with the participants, together exploring the possibilities of community arts.
 
Sam has over 18 years of experience in public relations, media, branding and curating and managing arts and cultural projects. Since joining HKDC in 2014, Sam mainly focus working on the flagship programmes of HKDC, including #ddHK, city and community programmes of Business of Design Week (BODW).

【Highlight Recap】“Meet the Arts Leaders” Series: Mr. Alex Cheung - Curating and Producing Festivals
HKAAA is honoured to have Mr. Alex Cheung, Senior Manager (Festivals) of Leisure and Cultural Services Department, to be our first speaker of the “Meet the Arts Leaders” Series.The talk was successfully held at H6 CONET last Monday.
 
Alex shared with us the evolution of local arts festivals, and focused particularly on the curating and producing of International Arts Carnival, New Vision Festival and World Cultures Festival.
 
In the Q&A section, Alex responded to questions in regard to New Vision Festival. Alex stressed that the festival has a unique positioning and should be allowed to have some room to experiment. Festival Office as a part of the government body, that being given a relatively rich resources comes a greater responsibility to take risks, to discover performances with great potential to the public, at the same time to support the work of local and international artists. 
 
As a wrap up, Alex suggested three qualities of an outstanding arts administrator - Resilience, Curiosity and Quality Madness.
 
Once again, we are thankful to Alex and all participants making their time for the event. Please stay tuned for upcoming HKAAA 19/20 Event Series!

一齣大大聲唱出打工仔辛酸,引發老闆無盡感觸嘅職場音樂劇﹗

大公司內,沒有硝煙,不用淌血,卻人人身受重傷。
職場初哥雄心壯志,但人生路不熟,最怕山頭眾多認錯大佬埋錯堆,懵盛盛做了人事鬥爭下的替死鬼。
想安全達陣到六點,可惜硬仗連場,避無可避,只剩下最後一道選擇:
要安身,還是要立命?到底要堅守自我,還是要還擊自保,同佢死過?

Re-Mark is a thought-provoking new work by Resident Choreographer Sang Jijia based on his research with Italian dancers and was first premiered at Fabbrica Europa Festival in Florence in May 2018. In this new version that marks the opening of City Contemporary Dance Festival in November 2019, Sang continues his research on the relationship between body, spatiality and memory through his signature multi-faceted way.

【HKAPA Musical: “The Woman in Kenzo” will be staged from 27 to 30 Nov 】
A Hong Kong version of “Sex and the City”!
 
Composed and arranged by Leon Ko, adapted with lyrics written by Chris Shum, the Academy’s directors Roy Szeto and Chan Suk-yi, together with the student cast and creative team are going to surprise the audience in theatre in late November!
 
The Woman in Kenzo is the only musical adapted from the novel of the same name. It depicts the economic boom and glamour of Hong Kong in the 1970s. Mary Chin may be good looking, with a nice figure and a high-paid job, and yet she is unhappy. Unable to understand why, she blames it on her long-term boyfriend Andy, who still has not proposed to her. Mary is fortunate enough to have three besties – Mimi, Martha and Jan – who all share similar outlooks on love and life. However, the appearance of the mysterious “blue blood-prince” Chang Cho-yam, will set these women on a collision course…

Zuni Icosahedron "Theatre Technology + Innovation: Z Innovation Lab" -- Theatre and Architecture Talk Series
Quick Architecture: From Kindergarten to Puppet Theatre

 
In 2019, the Z Innovation Lab will put on a reinterpretation of the lost Banyan performance Rotten Big Ass at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre. The “Professional Series” will be launched for stage technology practitioners and students, while the “Stage and Technology Workshop” and “HKCC-AR Time Travel at Hong Kong Cultural Centre” will be available to the public. The “Theatre and Architecture Talk” highlights innovative performance spaces and enhances the understanding towards the relationship between built spaces, technology and the theatre, setting the tone to discuss the development of the theatre as a whole.
 
In recent years, many theatres with iconic architecture have opened in the region, which we celebrate but also question for their lengthy planning and costly construction at a time when different genres of live events are presented with innovative stage / entertainment technologies and arts performers are looking at other kind of spaces to meet their future needs. This year, tagging along with Architecture Is Art Festival – Beautiful Space, we invited Japanese architect, Takahashi Ippei to give a presentation of his works, from his awarded kindergarten to a newly designed ‘puppet theatre’, displaying new technologies and ideas, as well as traditional methods in building ‘quick architecture’.Present in Japanese with Cantonese translation.

Eternal Wings - Hong Kong Cultural Centre 30th Anniversary Concert
The Hong Kong Cultural Centre was officially opened in November 1989. Its inaugural performance by the HKCO was considered a historic, landmark event. For thirty years, the venue has been the Orchestra's second home, and the two have worked closely together to foster diversified developments in arts and culture. To commemorate the momentous occasion, the HKCO will take you back thirty years ago to where it all started as we revisit that memorable performance.
 
The young pianist Chen Sa, hailed as one of the leading figures of the "Chinese Piano Age”, will be performing the Yellow River Piano Concerto. Second Symphony, commissioned for the opening of the Cultural Centre, will be performed by celebrated concert organist, Shen Yuan. Premier drummer in Chinese percussion music, Yim Hok Man, and Bearer of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Chiuchow (Chaozhou) Music of Shantou, Guangdong and erxian virtuoso, Wang Peiyu will perform the Chiu Chow Gongs and Drums piece, Netting Fish.
