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 Morning Brew. Phil’s back with you today, and despite Morris Miselowski being away in the air somewhere, we still have the requisite Tuesday antipodean flavour. After 10.30 Jarrod Watt is with us for his weekly report from home. He has a couple a great Aussie tracks for you too. At 11.10 Dr. Merrin Pearse is back for this week’s eco bit. After 11.30 our second guest of the week from the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow, a brilliant annual event run by the guys at the Hong Kong Fringe Club. We meet comic Brennan Reece. Actually from the UK, he won the “English Comedian of the Year” title in 2015, and best newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards in 2015. Morris will be back with us next week for more business futurism...and stuff.
