Build­ing a play

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - CITY LIGHTS -

More than just walls and build­ings, cities are “col­lec­tive mem­o­ries of the peo­ple,” ac­cord­ing to Italy’s ar­chi­tect­poet Aldo Rossi. Based on this in­ter­pre­ta­tion, cross-me­dia artist and arts di­rec­tor Mathias Woo as­sem­bled a mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary team to rein­ter­pret al­ter­na­tive ex­pe­ri­ences of space in Hong Kong. The 80-minute per­for­mance com­bines im­ages, mu­sic, stage, light­ing and live pi­ano ac­com­pa­ni­ment. A large bam­boo struc­ture is built live on the stage. Josie and the Uni Boys of Hong Kong and the pi­anist KJ Wong in­ter­pret the sounds, play­ing these on pi­ano dur­ing the show, thus cre­at­ing a unique theme mu­sic in­spired by Bach and the texts of Rossi.
