Bud­dhist Chants in Scent and Light

The Zuni Icosa­he­dron sea­son opener is an ex­per­i­men­tal per­for­mance based on a text that dates back 1,200 years to the Tang Dy­nasty, ar­ranged by Mas­ter Kuan Pen in the 20th cen­tury in his book “Cham­ber of Scent and Light.” Through a mix of con­tem­po­rary theater and tra­di­tional Bud­dhist rit­u­als, Zuni’s per­for­mance ex­plores the pu­rifi­ca­tion and calm­ing as­pects of chant­ing, as well as the heritage of the art of Bud­dhist vo­cal prac­tices. This per­for­mance is in Can­tonese and Pu­tonghua. Sep 22, 8:15pm;

Sep 25, 3pm. Grand Theatre, Cul­tural Cen­tre, 10 Sal­is­bury Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui. $100-1,000 from

The Tiger Lil­lies Per­form Ham­let

Ham­let gets a rock mu­si­cal up­date as Bri­tish cult band The Tiger Lil­lies team up with Dan­ish con­tem­po­rary theatre troupe Theatre Republique to retell the story of the young, tor­mented Dan­ish king and the rain of blood which en­sues as he comes to terms with who re­ally killed his father. Bal­anc­ing touches of cabaret, opera and gypsy mu­sic and the mul­ti­me­dia ex­per­tise of Theatre Republique, this stage adap­ta­tion is set to be an un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ence.
