HKAAA Updates
 
Arts Social! - Arts & Finance
The arts industry, like all other industries, faces the same old problem of scarcity - we need to satisfy unlimited wants with very limited resources.
 
Therefore, utilising resources effectively is the key to the survival of any kind of arts organization, regardless of its scale. Financial management is essential to setting realistic goals and achieving sustainable success of a company.
 
In fact, there are different parts and functions under the realm of Finance. For arts administrators, we are familiar with terms like budgeting, bookkeeping, accounting and auditing. But are there more we should know? Are we doing it the right way?
 
In the last Arts Social! event (of 2019/20), HKAAA is happy to have Ricky Lam to be our host and he will talk us through about finance in the arts. Ricky leverages over 20 years’ of experience in the management of business, business development, sales and marketing, and finance and accounting throughout the Asia Pacific across multiple industries. In recent years, Ricky also works with Hong Kong Arts Development Council as the accessor for the audited accounts for their projects.

【Highlight Recap】Arts Social! With Toby Crispy@Fashion Clinic - Arts X Social Impact
HKAAA is grateful to have Ms. Toby Crispy, one of the founders of Fashion Clinic, to be our host of the “Arts Social!”.The event was successfully held at Eaton HK last Monday.
 
Toby explains to the participants that the fashion industry is “sick”. The culture of fast fashion and overconsumption has led to different environmental and social problems to the world and as a fashion designer, Toby would like to make a change by promoting upcycle fashion.
 
Apart from introducing the services provided by Fashion Clinic, Toby also introduced several local brands that use their creativity to make changes to the fashion industry. Toby believes the best way to reduce waste is to strengthen the relationship between people and their clothes, to find the meaning and story within. Therefore, Fashion Clinic hosts different workshops to the public as a way to let them understand the production process and materials of a garment.
 
Once again, we are thankful to Toby Crispy and all participants making their time for the event. Please stay tuned for upcoming HKAAA 19/20 Event Series, we hope to see you soon!

Featured Event
 
The original musical, Matteo Ricci, was a sold-out event at its premiere.
Matteo Ricci… and legend is his name… 

 
The first round of performance of the musical Matteo Ricci has consistently drawn a full house in April of 2019. Due to popular demands, we are delighted to announce the staging of a re-run of this musical, which highlights Ricci’s tenacity in the face of adversity and his desire to harmonise different cultures.

A Brief Introduction
Matteo Ricci, an Italian Catholic priest from the Society of Jesus, has been selected by the American magazine Time as one of the most influential people in the second millennium of the Common Era.  The young Jesuit missionary travels from West to East with one purpose in mind -- to spread the Good News of God to China, in which he encounters countless obstacles and misunderstandings that threaten to derail his efforts  What are his choices? Is he to simply force feed the Catholic beliefs to the local Chinese at the risk of being expelled from the country?  Or is he to renounce his beliefs while unwittingly adopting all the local Chinese customs and rituals? Ricci bravely chooses a third way that nobody has dared to try before: He learns the local language, immerses himself into the culture, and befriends the Chinese people. He discusses topics such as morality, literature, science, philosophy, religion, rites and rituals with Confucian scholars. His tireless search for common grounds between the East and the West allows him to develop a set of principles which are later known as “The Principles of Matteo Ricci”, which effectively become the golden standard for future missionaries in China.

This musical is a colourful depiction of Matteo Ricci's journey to China and how he dreams the impossible dream of bridging the East and the West.

Hong Kong Voices: Cantata “The Banquet at elBulli” Premiere
Music by Daniel Lo
Libretto by Clement Lee
 
A variation on the short story by Ping-Kwan Leung
Semi-staged Cantata | Sung in Cantonese with Chinese & English Surtitles

“They attended the banquet as promised—had they got something to tell us?”
 
A writer and his old friends embarked on a gastronomic pilgrimage and arrived at the legendary elBulli one night; along with a young poet and a dancer, they savoured the various tastes of life, nostalgic or melancholic, astounding or forgiving...

"The Banquet at elBulli" from Postcolonial Affairs of Food and the Heart is a short story by the late Hong Kong writer Ping-Kwan Leung. Led by conductor Grace Chiang, local chamber choir Hong Kong Voices collaborates with theatre practitioner Clement Lee and composer Daniel Lo, and presents to you this reconstructed “banquet” in the form of a semi-staged cantata, returning to the ritual origin of performing arts and initiating a dialogue between music, literature and theatre.

Possibilities of Bottom-up Community Theatre
 
   Makhampom Theatre Group is a non-governmental organization in Thailand, famous for its community-oriented, educative approaches to theatre. With its own model on theatre production and performance form, it targets children and youth in different parts of Thailand, using theatre as a media to tackle issues on human rights developments, including indigenous rights, environmentalism, prostitution, and democracy. In its golden age, Makhampom Theatre Group had four different types of program, including performance, education theatre, community theatre, and international programs. Even though it suffered from budgetary crisis and began to reduce activities during the Asian financial crush, the model of its community-oriented theatre is still worth reviewing and studying.
 
   As an organization across Thailand, Makhampom has a special means to focus on every single community. They try to offer semi-customized Likay performances to their audience from different places, paying attention to location-specific situations.
“Likay is a mixture of Thai dance drama, which emphasizes the extravagance and embellishment of costumes and graceful dance patterns, and Thai folk music, which focuses on eloquence and poetic improvisation with a fast-moving plot as well as interactive conversations between the performers and audience.” (i)
 
    This art form helps the performers shape the story more easily. Moreover, it is the unique theatre process that make the semi-customized theatres possible. To analysis this process more specifically, this article explores Dao Loog Gai as an example.
 
   Dao Loog Gai theatre group was formed in the 1990s as a part of development organization of Makhampom Theatre Group, mainly focusing on the communities in Phitsanulok. Makhampom Theatre Group usually run the long-term community theatre project like Dao Loog Gai from one to four years. Jonson uses words like “Mobilizer” and “Facilitator” to describe UN agencies and its community-based organizations, which has the similar situation with Makhampom and Dao Loog Gai.
 
“Makhampom acts as a facilitator, providing training, support and guidelines to develop local micro media groups and thus build capacities of local youth. And Dao Loog Gai is actually the micro media group, which is called mobilizer; they work and live in communities, who are highly motivated individuals and serve as a link between communities and service delivery and other ‘external’ support system” (ii)
 
   Usually, Dao Loog Gai offers several programs to the community, including theatre games, theatre introductory workshops and so on; however, the most important being performance creation and community performance event. It is the production process that is actually regarded as the action to engage the public.

   There are usually three stages in a theatre process: pre-performance, performance, and post-performance. During the pre-performance stage, volunteers of Dao Loog Gai would visit the communities and identify the problems of the community (“the youth groups in Phitsanulok mostly belong to poor minority Lao-ethnic communities who used to struggle with social discrimination and severe drug problems” (iii)). After they collect all the information, they would set a schedule for the performance, including developing a story-sequence, contacting with the communities, finding local young group as volunteers, and training them as actors with necessary practical knowledge of theatrical skills. During the performance process, volunteers would arrive much earlier and set the venue in the open air. Pre-show comical songs will be performed to attract more audience. The performance usually takes place in the evening with each play lasting 15-20 minutes. During the post-performance stage, there would be an evaluation, carried out by the volunteers through direct feedback from the audience.
   There are many positive effects of the community theatres of Dao Loog Gai or Makhampom Theatre Group. Firstly, it truly empowers the youth groups to not only develop their capacity on theatre, but also enhance their confidence and sense of achievement. Secondly, the theatre process raises the communities’ awareness on their social issues. Due to their cultural background, Thai people tend to avoid talking about the negative or sensitive issues in public, such as AIDs or drugs. However, the theatre project necessitates the communities to face the problems through the various stages of research, preparation, and evaluation. Lastly, the community theatre of Dao Loog Gai is an access to information. On one hand, they provide necessary knowledge about AIDS, drugs, child rights and domestic violence and so on. The audience are educated on the issues regarding human rights, and get to relate the them to the whole community. On the other hand, Dao Loog Gai offered “an alternative access and voice from lack of access in mainstream media.”(iv)  People of remote and marginal community seldom have opportunities to own their local festival or social communication media. The community theatres of Dao Loog Gai offered the access to the information with art. They could tell their stories through the theatre as a voice. What’s more, even though the media environment of Thailand is liberal, the media is mostly controlled by the state government and the army, which means it could be hard for some information to enter the rural area. Dao Loog Gai indeed is the key medium for the communities to share and access.
    Nevertheless, limitation exists in this theatre process. When Dao Loog Gai or Makhampom is regarded as a bottom-up or grassroot organization, it mainly means that the organization is led by the citizens instead of the government. Yet, it also fails to become a real bottom-up organization at the same time, as Makhampom offers little space for the communities to create and produce in the process. It is Dao Loog Gai who identifies the problems, offer the story-sequence, set up schedule and train the actors, within their formula and framework. This process could be deemed as a top-down project because by the authority of Makhampom.
   In reality, the funding of Makhampom comes from agencies of Thai Government, domestic health organization and international organizations such as UNICEF. Clearly these organizations want the community theatre to proceed in control with enough information provided. For Makhampom, they need these outcomes to show their advantages. However, they also need to question whether it is possible to reach a dialogue with creativity. For community arts, the quality of delivery is equally important as the quality of outcome.

Pride and Prejudice – 10% discount offer
First Impressions are Unreliable, yet True Love is Irresistible.
 
First impressions are about pride, prejudice, or the red thread of fate secretly tied by Yue Lao? Back to Hong Kong in the 1950s, Ka-wai, a charming daughter of a well-off middle class family, meets the handsome Mr Tat-chi, who has completed his studies in Britain.  However, the first encounter is a hard crash.  Tat-chi is overly proud of his social status and Ka-wai takes an instant dislike to the arrogant heir of a wealthy and prominent family.  Will the poor first impressions break their red thread of fate?
 
The play is an adaptation of the classic English romantic novel Pride and Prejudice by the famous translator and playwright, Rupert Chan.  Rupert exquisitely combines both Chinese and Western elements in his play, demonstrating Hong Kong as a place where East meets West in the 1950s.
