It’s Tuesday on Morning Brew. At 9.40 today were off to the theatre with the Artistic Director of the Hong Kong Ballet. Internationally renowned choreographer and director Septime Webre is taking the company from strength to strength, as its relatively new boss. This week they will perform Tchaikovsky’s complex masterpiece Swan Lake, in a version by their former Artistic Director John Meehan. Septime joins us on the line. After 10.30 it’s all things Aussie with Jarrod Watt. He has more brand new music and all the week’s news too. At 11.10 Dr. Merrin Pearse will be with us. He’s back in Hong Kong for his regular eco spot. At 12.10 Morris Miselowski has more biz futurism. On this day in 2001 the game Grand Theft Auto III was released, taking us into a new generation of open world gaming. Eighteen years later consoles have moved into the cloud and we now talk about “gamification”. Listen to Morris for more on all of the above.(9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org )
Welcome to a new week on Morning Brew. We begin as usual with our regular rugby update from CEO of HK Rugby, Robbie McRobbie. He’s got all the latest in the local and Asian game for you. At 11.10 we’ll find out about his year’s Darkness into Light Hong Kong walk. Hong Kong’s Irish community is once again organising this huge event to show support for those who’ve been bereaved by suicide. It’s happening this coming Saturday, and we’ll find out more from two of the organisers, Brigit Mullane and Clarence Tsang (from Samaritan Befrienders HK). Join us on Facebook Live for this. After 12, we catch up with Canadian adventurer and film maker Markus Pukonen who’s travelling the world using only human power. Last time we talked he was trying to find a way across a large expanse of water. Seems he may have finally done it, but was it plain sailing ? Check out his page Routes of Change for more.
