Reveries of the Red Chamber

The Hong Kong Dance Company is getting experimental this August. Their upcoming show, Reveries of the Red Chamber, is a three-part look at the Chinese literary masterpiece, Dream of the Red Chamber. The programme features three very different interpretations of the work, each helmed by three very different artistic minds: renowned choreographer and dance doyenne Helen Lai, artistic director of the HKDC Yang Yuntao, and theatrical player Hoyingfung. Each act brings the book to life from wildly different yet equally probing perspectives. The performance features a specially designed set that provides audiences a view of Grand View Garden from different perspectives. A microscopic view invites the viewer into the heart of the garden from seating around it, while a macroscopic perspective provides a bird’s-eye view from the balcony, with the audience switching between the two during intermission. With themes explored including destiny, fate, letting go and seeking truth, this is a show not to be missed.

David Beckham lands in Hong Kong for Kent and Curwen's 90th anniversary

It's been a week of turmoil over in Britain. But England football legend and global style icon David Beckham is missing the aftermath of Brexit by hitting Hong Kong with British style brand Kent and Curwen, as well as chatting to Time Out Hong Kong about his dashing looks, his love for our city and his new partnership with K&C's design director Daniel Kearns. Becks was here to mark the 90th anniversary of the fashion brand, as well as attend its private dinner in our city. He talked about how the brand's new collection is expected to be launched in November, as well as being showcased in London on June 27. Time Out's editorial director, Matt Fleming, got to chat with Becks over in Admiralty as he came in off his flight and he was keen to let us know that Hong Kong is an 'extraordinary city' - one he loves coming to visit. Expect more visits from the star in the near future, as well, due to his involvement in the Kent and Curwen project. And expect a Time Out interview with Beckham in an issue of our magazine that's not too far away, where he talks about the city, being in business and the K&C partnership, as well as chatting about his own looks and why he's so appealing (particularly to the girls who were in the room). In fact, he blushed when we asked him about his attractive features... So, check out our mag for the full interview! Thank you, Becks!
