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.

Standard Chartered Arts in the Park 2018: Seeking Project Artists

One of Hong Kong’s largest community arts events is back this November! 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 on or before 10 August. Related teaching experience is an advantage.
