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.

Hong Kong Voices: Cantata “The Banquet at elBulli” Premiere [THIS Weekend]
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.

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.
