Abstract:

"Choreographer Merce Cunningham and his longtime collaborator, musician John Cage, sometimes used to flip coins to decide what should happen next in their work. The aim was to let chance play a part in their art. Sadly, both artists are no longer with us. Last weekend Hong Kong dance lovers had their final chance to see Merce Cunningham's Dance Company live on stage here."--RTHK web site.

"In 1924, influenced by the Soviet Union, Mongolia declared itself 'The People's Republic of Mongolia'. In the early 1990s, after the Communists fell from power in Russia, Mongolia dropped the 'People's Republic' part of its name and introduced a new, more democratic, government. That led to a lot more freedom for the country's artists. A new exhibition, co-presented by the Hanart Gallery, shows how more than twenty of those artists, both veteran and up-and-coming, have responded to that freedom."--RTHK web site.

"Timothy Sun is a freelance saxophonist with the Hong Kong Sinfonietta, the Macau Orchestra, and the group Saxmax. Pianist Jacqueline Leung began studying music at the Academy for Performing Arts, and graduated from the Royal Academy of Music in London. This weekend they are giving the recital 'La Vie en Rose: The Allure of the Tango' as part of the Fringe's City Festival. During the show, Timothy will play three different saxophones, demonstrating the instrument's amazing range of sounds and textures. The concert includes tango, French 'chanson' and jazz standards. This week, in our studio, they play Astor Piazzolla's 'Libertango'."--RTHK web site.
