Something has refreshed the Hong Kong Cultural Centre since early this month when Hong Kong Ballet's season finale, WHEELDON, RATMANSKY, MCINTYRE & THE BEATLES, a showcase of three short pieces by arguably the best contemporary ballet choreographers at this day and age, was presented on the Grand Theatre stage.

Hong Kong Dance Company invites Beijing Dance Academy to collaborate again, doing two shows at two weekends, BEAUTY BEYOND WORDS: ANCIENT CHINESE DANCE CLASSICS, performed at Shatin Town Hall at last weekend, and the revival of DREAM OF THE PAST at Hong Kong Cultural Centre at the coming weekend. I saw BEAUTY BEYOND WORDS, and it was an exciting night for me as finally, Hong Kong Dance Company has regained her strength of being a dance company focusing on traditional Chinese dance after two wandering years.

Hal Prince really loves Brecht. This is my first initial reaction after seeing EVITA, the revival of Mr Prince's original West End and Broadway production of the musical by composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyricist Tim Rice, now running in Hong Kong at the Hong Kong Acamedy of Performing Arts for its international tour with a brand new cast

Retelling the ancient Greek play by Aeschylus, which is the first part of his three Danaid plays (part two THE EGYPTIANS and part three THE DANAIDS do not survive), THE SUPPLIANT WOMEN, this new version by David Greig after the ancient Greek tragedian, is an actual and glorious ritual to make a testimony to the theatre, to the Festival, to the people and to the world we are living in.

Two theatre shows in the Festival, both ran at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, have their titles branded with the word 'Dream': BOSCH DREAMS and DREAM AND DERANGEMENT. Not much is similar to these two pieces, but I find it fascinating that both pieces approach theatre and the performing space not in a sense of showcasing performances but embedding the performances by the performers as part of the piece to make illusions.
