HK Repertory Theatre "The Abandoned Harbour", multi-media production "Urban Bottling", Google Cultur

2015-07-15
The fragrant harbour that gave Hong Kong its name. It may not be so fragrant these days and it may also be giving way to more and more reclamation but the changes it has undergone are the subject of a recent local theatre production, “The Abandoned Harbour”. It’s not just our harbour that’s shrinking. Living space in Hong Kong is also getting ever more difficult to find, with cage homes, subdivided flats, and street sleepers among the results. Last month, young dancers, architects and musicians joined forces for the multi-media production, “Urban Bottling”, exploring the fight for space in our cramped city.

Well, in part one we talked about the shrinking harbour and shrinking living space. Now to something that helps to shrink the world and bring it a little closer to us.
The internet search engine Google is one of many that helps us to navigate our way through a world of information, even bringing us satellite pictures of the planet, and world-covering maps. For some time now it’s been joining forces with major museums and cultural institutes worldwide, to bring the world’s art galleries and museums to our desktops or laptops. Now Hong Kong is becoming become part of the project.

Born in Hong Kong to an English father and a Chinese mother, singer-songwriter Emmy the Great now moves between London, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Salt Lake City and New York. Towards the end of June, she returned to Hong Kong to promote her new EP, titled “S”. While she was here she spoke to us about her work, and about how last year’s Umbrella Movement protests helped her to reassess her feelings about her birthplace.
