To commemorate Kuo Pao Kun’s artistic achievements, 2012 will be the year of the “Kuo Pao Kun Festival,” during which we will stage many of his works and organise a plethora of related events.
In July, we will present Lao Jiu: The Musical, followed by The Silly Little Girl and The Funny Old Tree in September. Danny Yung will present his vision of The Spirits Play with Makoto Sato in the same month. In the education and outreach front, we will stage The Coffin is too big for the hole, Calling the East Wind and Day I met the Prince.
The festival is open to all who share our passion for Kuo’s work and philosophies. Beyond honouring him, we wish to use this occasion to contemplate the future; beyond reminiscing, we wish to explore our intricate relationship with Kuo Pao Kun a decade later.
We hope to see the many diverse people who have been influenced by Kuo Pao Kun participate in the 2012 festival. This might involve performances, readings, or any artistic work inspired by his writings, productions, or philosophies. The only requirement is that it reflects your unique perspective of Kuo Pao Kun.
If you wish to participate in the festival, you need only provide us with the details of your proposed presentation.
We will publish a festival guide in the last quarter of this year. A revised edition will be available after April 2012. We will also house a festival website.
