Miller Performing Arts: Stage and Screen Combat Workshop

Ever wondered how filmmakers and theatre directors make fight scenes look so realistic? Come along to this workshop, and learn how to safely perform fight scenes on stage and for the camera! This fun, daring, and completely safe workshop is led by King Wong, a trained professional in stage combat, unarmed fighting and western sword fighting, and Production Director at Banana Effect. Participants will learn a range of basic techniques and fight-scene terms, and discover how to portray stage and screen violence effectively with correction actions, reactions, angles, staging and misdirection. The workshop is also a fantastic way to build teamwork, trust, and leadership and communication skills.

Miller Performing Arts: Pull Back the Curtain 2018 Sharing Performance

After four years of full-house performances, Pull Back the Curtain returns this September with new theatre works written by some of Hong Kong’s very best youth voices! Earlier this year, 24 budding playwrights embarked on a creative journey with Pull Back the Curtain, YAF’s youth scriptwriting programme. Led by professional theatre director and playwright Clare Stearns, participants have taken inspiration from contemporary English plays to create their very own original 30-minute scripts. Three of the most promising pieces are now being transformed into staged readings and a professional theatre production directed by Lindsey McAlister and Eimear Mimi Burns.

Standard Chartered Arts in the Park 2018: Seeking Project Artists

Each year, Standard Chartered Arts in the Park works with over 3,500 young people, giving them the chance to show their creativity and sharing the joy of art with the public. Artists play an essential role in Arts in the Park – hosting art stalls during the two-day creative weekend, or running artist-in-school residencies in which thousands of parade puppets and costumes are created collaboratively with students. We are now seeking project artists for Arts in the Park 2018! If you have exciting ideas and are passionate about inspiring teenagers and the public to enjoy art, please make an online submission at www.hkyaf.com on or before 10 August. Related teaching experience is an advantage.
