While ev­ery­one else is fo­cused on the ac­tion on­stage, pho­tog­ra­pher Irene Flan­hardt has turned her lens be­hind the wings, to the ac­tors and per­form­ers of four Can­tonese opera productions as they ap­ply makeup, don head­gear and hair-pieces, put on elab­o­rate cos­tumes and get ready to go out in front of a full house. Flan­hardt cap­tures the ten­sion of the cast be­fore a per­for­mance, the heat of the theater, and the qui­etly fre­netic en­ergy back­stage as the show is in full swing. Through Dec 18. Flan­hardt Ga­lerie und Ate­lier,
