Celebrating Quarry Bay’s new community space, Quarryside!

To celebrate the official launch of Quarryside in Quarry Bay in June 2023, Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation (HKYAF) was invited to create a site-specific dance video exploring the beautiful features of the grounds. Choreographed by Kelsey Ang, the dance film features four brilliant HKYAF dancers: Andrea Chung, Andrea Wong, Chantal Lai, and Cherie Pang. Quarryside is a brand new leisure space open to all, providing opportunities for community groups to host multi-functional and diverse events like performances, leisure spaces and workshops addressing areas of creative health, creative placemaking and creative sustainability. The site offers over 3,700 sqm of open space, is partly open 24 hours a day and its architecture is inspired by Quarry Bay’s industrial past. Operated by St. James’ Settlement and sponsored by the Swire Group Charitable Trust (Swire Trust) and with Swire Properties as the Supporting Partner of the project, Quarryside will hold trial operations in July 2023 and gradually open to the public.

Miller Performing Arts: #BeTheChange: Kasama

“Bridge our gap, communicate with love. Despite our differences, we can unite.” A dedication to Hong Kong’s domestic workers – our community’s companions and carers. The dance and spoken word film Kasama (Tagalog for “together”) is a testament to the strength of the human spirit, capturing the determination and hope of immigrants who leave their homes in search of work to support their families. Written by migrant domestic worker Maria Nemy Lou Rocio, the co-founder of The Migrant Writers of Hong Kong, Kasama is a call for empathy and understanding in a community that can often feel fragmented and divisive. Inspired by her creative work, professional choreographer Kelsey Ang worked with a group of Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation dancers to bring the spoken word performance to life. ​The Migrant Writers of Hong Kong was established in March 2021 as an inclusive and nurturing environment for writers in the migrant community. The group use their platform and programmes to promote mental health awareness through creative writing. Their first anthology Ingat (Take Care) is set to launch in autumn 2023.

Light switches and door locks have to be checked nine times – her magical number. Harper hasn't left her bedroom since the pandemic began three years ago. Her days are filled with counting, sorting, ordering and obeying the voices in her head. Through Instagram, she watches her contemporaries start going back to school, to parties, on holidays and hanging out. She knows her actions are irrational, but the voices in her head are relentless. They are there telling her what to do 24:7:365. She is a prisoner in her own mind.   Written and directed by Lindsey McAlister, this original musical portrays a character with OCD, but it is not based on any one person's experience. Instead, it is a composite of diverse perspectives, offering a multifaceted exploration of this complex condition, highlighting its intricate and often misunderstood nature.
