Moderator and Performer: TSANG Man-tung
Conducted in Cantonese
This lecture-performance series is hosted by scenographer and singing bowl artist Mr. Tsang Man-tung. In each of the lectures, there will be an interactive performance of 21 minutes, and each of the four speakers will use their respective multi-media medium plus singing bowls performance to explore the artistic expressions on 'sounds', 'colours', 'images' and 'forms'. Both host and speakers will also discuss about how elements of physical movements, sounds, images, light and shadow can merge together to form a new spatial realm on the performance stage.
18 November - Images
Speaker: CHEUNG King-wai
Shadows appear, be it day or night. Where there is shape and light, shadow appears. If there is no shape in a creative piece, would there still be shadows? Come, make shadows!
19 November – Colours
Speaker: anothermountainman (Stanley WONG)
Colours have distinct hues, tints and tones. When different colours are mixed together, they become black. Sublime the imagery and it becomes light. Come, look!
20 November - Sounds
Each visual image is made up of sound and silence. So how does sound create space? Come, listen!
21 November - Forms
Speaker: Koala YIP
Are outlooks, when observed in its minutest form, truly free and boundless in the world of art? Come, observe!
Each lecture lasts for approcimately 2 hours without intermission.
