Miller Performing Arts: Pull Back the Curtain 2020 Youth Scriptwriting Initiative

Workshop dates:
17 | 04 | 2020 (5pm – 8pm)
18 – 19 | 04 | 2020 (9am – 4pm)

The city’s most innovative English-language youth scriptwriting initiative returns! Join us for our 2020 programme and bring your scriptwriting ideas to life.
Through a series of workshops led by professional theatre practitioner Jessica de Borja, Pull Back the Curtain 2020 guides you to create your own original 15-minute theatre piece. This year we focus on how language changes and evolves, generation by generation. We also look at how writers can use spoken word, poetry and multimodal text to take inspiration from the past and make something contemporary that is uniquely their own. Participants explore a wide range of classic and contemporary texts by up-and-coming and world-renowned playwrights, such as Bryony Lavery and Morgan Malcolm Lloyd, and create powerful, thought-provoking work that inspires inventive movement and action on stage.
At the end of the programme, two scripts will receive a staged reading and the most promising script will be transformed into a theatre production on 25 & 26 September 2020. 

The writers of the selected scripts will meet the director and be invited to rehearsals. They must also be available to attend all performances and post-performance Meet the Artist sessions on 25 & 26 September 2020.

The Hong Kong Jockey Club Community Project Grant: stART Up Community Arts Project 2020 Theatrical Performance: Why on Earth?

The Earth is a living organism that goes through changes every day. The choices we make and our day-to-day behaviour also affect the Earth’s evolution. It is up to us to help advocate and bring attention to this global issue.
Why on Earth? features original dance, spoken word and physical theatre works that highlight the issues posed by climate change, the challenges we face in our daily lives, and what we can all do to help preserve our planet in the best way possible. The production is created by professional artists Lindsey McAlister, Jessica De Borja, Davina Cooke, Becky Baker, Jade Yung and Mag Hung, as well as HKYAF’s Youth Assistant Choreographers Isabella Wei, Jacqueline Lo, Natalie Hsu and Vivian Ho.
