The arts and society are inextricably bound they respond and react to one another. In a year when the situation with the pandemic remains painful and unpredictable, the performing arts—and indeed society at large—faces incredible challenges, not least with planning programmes that can resonate and entertain audiences. Nonetheless, many artists and performers are drawing on their reservoirs of strength and are rising to this challenge, responding to a difficult transformation of society and everyday life by making breakthroughs in conventional modes of art-making.
Tai Kwun is mindful of this, as its mission is to provide the public with arts and entertainment on the one hand and to support and nurture local artists on the other. When performances were unfortunately interrupted or cancelled, Tai Kwun wants to show its support. Therefore, dance, drama, music, online theatrical performances, and many other forms performing arts events in “On Stage Online” will be presented-free of charge-on the Internet. The full line-up of performing arts programmes in a variety of formats will delight viewers and connect audiences on a variety of platforms. More programmes are coming up, stay tuned for details.
