Edward Lam Dance Theatre’s Art School Musical Returns To Hong Kong
Why We Recommend it
A contemporary adaptation of the classic Chinese work The Butterfly Lovers, the hugely popular Art School Musical returns to Hong Kong for its fourth restaging adapted for The Box at Freespace.
Premiered in 2014, Art School Musical transforms a traditional tale of heartbreak into a story about a search for identity. Following successful tours to Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing and Taipei, this return to the Hong Kong stage is long-awaited. The show features 18 original songs, performed by Macau’s rising star Jordan Cheng and a cast from Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan. The plot centres around three young students and their struggle to find meaning in love, art and life.
Alongside 10 performances of the show, director Edward Lam, the creative team and invited guests also lead a series of public seminars on the unique creative process involved in Chinese language musicals.
