Hong Kong Dance Company Grand Dance Drama “L’Amour Immortel”
A timeless classic that captures the imagination of every generation
This love story originates from one of the “Strange Tales from a Chinese Studio” written by Pu Songling. It was adapted into the Hong Kong blockbuster movie “A Chinese Ghost Story” in the 1980s, and has taken on yet another incarnation as the grand dance drama “L’Amour Immortel”.
 
Nie Xiaoqian, an alluring ghost, is enslaved by a sinister demon and forced to prey on humans. When she meets and falls head-over-heels in love with the honest and good-natured Ning Caichen, she becomes determined to save him from evil forces, even at the cost of her own afterlife. In “L’Amour Immortel”, the timeless classic is filled with new spirit by the performers’ physical expression. It captures the essence of the most beautiful human values in a poignant ghost story that will touch many hearts in this broken world.

《香港藝術的前世今生》走過西九廿年夢
 
 
自1998年施政報告宣佈興建西九龍文娛藝術區(前名)的構思至今二十又一年,西九文化區仍然是工地處處,落成項目寥寥可數,將香港發展成為亞洲文化藝術中心的鴻圖大計是否只是南柯一夢?本地劇團一條褲製作以西九文化區的前世今生作主軸進行全新創作,仔細翻查這段歷史,搜羅引證不同檔案,走訪不同財團、政界、教育界、藝術團體及藝術工作者等,透過訪問,搜集資料,以多角度剖析,編成紀錄劇場《香港藝術的前世今生》。

演出將不設座位,觀眾會猶如置身當年西九的展覽場地,由演員帶領進入2003年的時空,體會西九文化區當初驚傳由一個地產財團獨力鯨吞,轉而給三大財團壟斷,輾轉而成今天的西九文化區管理局的進程,並與多個不同角色進行一次前世今生的對話。

Shenzhen Original Drama - Opportunities and Challenges
 
Shenzhen is a young city with a shorter theatre history compared to many other cities. In 1992, the first small theater drama, Mud Man, appeared on the historical stage and opened the prologue of Shenzhen original drama. Since then, Shenzhen has gradually seen the emergence of a number of drama practitioners, alongside many excellent original plays. From the birth of the first original drama in Shenzhen to the success of Shenzhen Drama Festival, and from the establishment of the first professional drama training base to the development of Shenzhen original drama teams, Shenzhen original drama has been expanding under the leadership of drama predecessors and “the second generation of drama” for more than 20 years. In recent years, Shenzhen original drama is faced with the situation in which opportunities and challenges co-exist.
 
 
The Opportunities of the Development of Shenzhen Original Drama
 
An Expanding Market
Cultural industry has become one of the four mainstay industries for the future development of Shenzhen. According to relevant data, drama has the second highest consumption frequency in Shenzhen performing arts market. Unlike 20 years ago, where many good works were not well known to audience due to the information-poor market, the deepening of cultural system reform and the influx of all kinds of high-quality drama performances in recent years have led to the proliferation of theatre as a form of entertainment and relaxation for the Shenzhen people. The high popularity of classical dramas by Meng Jinghui, Stan Lai, and other famous directors in Shenzhen shows that the audiences have formed the awareness and appreciation towards theatre. 
 
As drama become one of the most popular art forms in the daily life of Shenzhen people, people’s ability to appreciate drama is also improving. According to some theatre practitioners, the way Shenzhen audiences reflect on dramas has changed greatly.  "The one-way communication between performers and audience has turned into a three-dimensional intersection of performers, audience and society." In Meng Jinghui's opinion, the positive interaction between drama and the city is being established in Shenzhen. The rising expectation of the audience inspire local troupes to create drama scripts which tell the story based on Shenzhen background and culture as well as give birth to numerous original plays with higher quality and deeper thinking.

An Expanding Number of Drama Practitioners
The flourishing market and growing audience in Shenzhen also attract more talented drama practitioners to stay and engage in drama creation in this city. As the main force of Shenzhen original drama, "the second generation" built the first groups of local youth troupes in Shenzhen brick by brick. The rising prosperity of Shenzhen drama market is what they've been looking forward to seeing for several years and it gives them greater confidence and motivations in continue devoting themselves into their drama career. As more works are recognized and accepted by audience, their achievements also give confidence to many young people and troupes that are still unknown to the public. It also attracts a number of outstanding drama workers and troupes from all over the country to develop their career in Shenzhen. "It can be said that Shenzhen drama is a piece of white paper which allows the theater workers to paint all kinds of different things." Shenzhen drama has infinite possibilities, and the open and diverse culture atmosphere of Shenzhen provides a broad space for the development of original drama. In Shenzhen, anyone could have the chance to become a member of a drama production. As Ge Dali, the deputy director of the National Theatre said, "There are many drama workers in Shenzhen, some of them are civil servants in the city, others may be teachers in art schools. We don't focus much on the academic and family backgrounds, we focus on the projects and the performances." Shenzhen brings together the wisdom and strengths and develops an organic "hematopoietic" function and an ideal breeding ground for original drama productions.
 
 
The Challenges of the Development of Shenzhen Original Drama
 
Lack of Theatre Venues
Up to 2016, Shenzhen has 20 professional theatre venues. Considering a population 11.9 million permanent residents in Shenzhen, which averages out to 595,000 people per theatre, is the number of theatre venues in Shenzhen is inconsistent with its economic development and the cultural needs. Although Shenzhen has excellent theatre resources such as Shenzhen Grand Theater, Shenzhen Poly Theater, and HuaXia Art Center, the number of theatre venues are still far from the dream of "drama normalization". In addition, small theatre with less than 500 seats are even fewer. As the ideal performing place for local groups to cultivate talents and projects, small theatre venues play an irreplaceable role in stimulating market vitality and developing consumption habits. The lack of small theatre prevents many troupes and projects from being implemented, and at the same time, restricts the vitality and enthusiasm of original work creation.

Lack of Distinctive Style of Drama Works
Any original drama of a city that wants to occupy a place in the national or the global market should establish its own brand and have a certain degree of recognition. The typical style of Beijing plays is traditional and pioneering, while in Shanghai, there are many plays adapted from famous classics. Shenzhen, however, has yet to form its own unique and recognizable style. Shenzhen is a city with a large number of migrant population and youths. Hence, any attempts to meet the diverse needs of all the Shenzhen audience can easily result in the loss of a distinctive style.
 
In fact, the migrant population is the very characteristic of this city. Since Shenzhen brought together people from all over the country, they are all eager to have a sense of identity and belonging. As Yang Kanwu, the Vice-chairman of the Beijing Opera Association said, "when the subject of drama is based on the emotions and psychology of Shenzhen people, drama will then become the spiritual needs and lifestyle of them." Therefore, Shenzhen original drama should create more plays that could arouse the emotions of the audience, instead of blindly imitating styles of other cities.
 
Lack of Resources and Platforms
Shenzhen Drama Festival is currently the main platform for drama exchange and networking. It also creates popularity for drama practitioners and their works. "Ju Hui Sunday" is another such platform for exchange and transfer of drama knowledge. However, this kind of sharing and learning platforms in Shenzhen are very few, which leads to the loss of drama talents and the lack of opportunities for excellent plays. According to Duan Gang, the chairman of Nanshan Cultural federation, "Shenzhen drama should form a composite force." The cultivation of drama talents and the popularization of drama cannot rely solely on the market, but also requires the joint efforts of government and formal education. Besides policies and funding support, the government should assist in integrating and rationally allocating drama resources from all kinds of channels.
