    Information

Yuan Yang-City at the Mixed of Time is an interdisciplinary and performative art tour aims on manifesting the historical and cultural significance of the city to the visitors from around the globe, to inspire a better appreciation of the importance and value of the art and cultures in Hong Kong. The tour will visit the most underrated heritage and cultural spots of Kowloon City with contemporary performances by young and emerging Hong Kong contemporary artists.

    Roaming Storytelling Bamboo Theatre

    Artist: Lau Hok Shing, Hanison

    Bamboo Theatre is a temporary Cantonese opera theaters and worshipping halls for community festivals to praise the charitable and pious deeds of the deities, most notably the Yu Lan /Hungry Ghost Festival and the Cheung Chau Bun Festival. The framework and pillars are made of bamboo and galvanized iron, which is a time-proven technique reflecting the spirit of Hong Kong traditional architecture.

    Roaming Storytelling Bamboo Theatre is a mobile theatre that looks like a performing stage in a much smaller scale. The performance of Hanison Lau will be taken place in the Kai Tak Campus of the Academy of Visual Arts in Hong Kong Baptist University and the Hoi Sham Park to reveal forgotten folklores and cultural myths of our rapidly changing city. Artist Ling Chung Wan Kevin ’s mobile puppet theatre - Art Hawker 2 is made of wooden plate and plastic will demonstrate Hanison’s stories by a combination of different puppetry techniques.

    It means to explore the hidden aspects of the local history and traditional customs, to reconstruct the human relationships in the old Hong Kong and reflect the transformation of the city through oral history, thus to reimagine the meaning of heritage conservation. Two stages, a story-teller and a puppet show create and inspire a mutual dialogue aiming to present the most quintessential contours of Hong Kong.

    Kowloon Walled City, once considered the densest settlement on earth does not exist anymore. Though demolished 20 years ago, fascination in Kowloon Walled City just continues to grow, fired in part by the many urban legends that forever swirl around this quiet park and mysterious boundary. If you search “Kowloon Walled City” on the google map, there’s no single clue about the chaos in the midst of civilization. There’s a large contradiction with the searching result from google image. After its destruction, one may find it difficult to reimagine a vision of the Walled City by its current emptiness.

    Participants will be invited to walk on the boundary and eavesdrop the hidden myths of the Kowloon Walled City, or to tell your own story.
