Exclusive guided tour for HKAAA members/volunteers-Microwave International New Media Arts Festival 2017
About the Exhibition
With the theme of "Cyberia", the 21st Microwave is having its grand opening on 12nd October this year. In the time of NOW, we move on after the 20th anniversary celebration, to reveal something at the moment, something we want to proceed and respond to the current world. In Microwave 2017 - we are looking at the element of live - everything could be live, FB live, live coding, generative video/animation, electronic music and light play. We form a “Cyberia”, the land to inspire and to experience “live”, a place to redefine our lives.

Highlight Event
 
New Paradise of Silent Island by MeimageDance (28&29 October 2017) presented by Kwang Hwa Information Culture Centre
New Paradise of Silent Island is the classical reproduction from renowned choreographer Ho Hsiao-Mei’s own company premiere Woo! Barbie in 2010. This production is a collective creation with the spirit of Taiwanese cosplay, drawing together the Eight Generals, betel nut beauties, glove puppets, the Barbie doll, and other highly identifiable cultural symbols in contemporary Taiwan society. Combining local Taiwanese cultural symbols with observations of social genders, Ho’s dance faithfully portrays the world in a time of change with ingenious surreal techniques. Blurring the boundary between reality and creation, the choreographer resonates with the audience deeply in a frame-breaking and interactive way, inviting them to wander around the stage under a diverse and chaos atmosphere of Taiwanese temple fairs.
 
New Paradise of Silent Island by MeimageDance, is a 2017 Taiwan Culture Festival programme supported by HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity
Date and Time: 28 October 2017 (Sat) 8pm and 29 October 2017 (Sun) 3pm
Venue: Multi-media Theatre, HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity
Ticket Price: $200 (Free Seating)

DUDAMEL X BEETHOVEN “Changing Young Lives, One Note At A Time” Forum
How can music be a vehicle for social change? How can social and education initiatives wield the power of music in and for their community?
 
The Hong Kong Arts Festival and the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust will conduct a forum with the theme of CHANGING YOUNG LIVES, ONE NOTE AT A TIME, running parallel with the concert series featuring the world-famous Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela and its charismatic conductor Gustavo Dudamel in early November. The orchestra’s members, along with more than 787,000 children across Venezuela, have all been nurtured under El Sistema, a pioneering social initiative which provides opportunities for inclusion and growth for the most needy children through music participation.
 
Keynote speaker Mr. Eduardo Méndez, Executive Director of El Sistema, along with specialists across the music, education, and community sectors of Hong Kong, will share their insight and experiences into how music contributes to the common good – from an individual level to society at large, and how community initiatives in music can make an impact on the Hong Kong community.
