HKAF Laila's Public Talk Series Sight and Sound: Performing Arts X Tech
Arts Tech has become an ubiquitous word in Hong Kong's art development recently. More and more performance venues, art groups and artists are using artificial intelligence, spatial sound, virtual reality and other innovative technologies to explore other possibilities for stage performances, widening the spectrum for artistic creation. Over the past decade, the HKAF has also brought a number of performances using various stage technologies to Hong Kong audiences, like the Frogman (2019) and BLINDNESS (2021).
Though Arts Tech has increased in prominence, discussions of it from people in the field of performing arts have been rare. The first of Laila Public Talk Series focuses on theatre, inviting leading stage designers and director to tell us all more about “Performing Arts X Tech” on stage.
