    You may remember that a couple of months ago, The Works featured “Fountain de Chopin” a platform to promote, and increase interest in, jazz music. One of its founders, saxophonist Timothy Wan will be with us later to introduce some original music he’s working on right now. But before that we begin with new work in the visual arts.
    At the Karin Weber Gallery In February and early March a group of young Hong Kong artists presented works focusing on a subject that’s always a priority here: finding somewhere to live in and create a home. The exhibition was titled “tong fong” which means sub-divided flats. In the show, the five artists taking part explored ideas of home and household objects. We spoke to two of them.

    As you step into the gallery space of Para Site, you'll be immediately captivated by the extraordinary centrepiece of the “Soft breath” exhibition. Using soap as his material, Trevor Yeung has re-created a tree trunk from London’s Hampstead Heath that formerly achieved notoriety for its use for then-illicit sexual liaisons. Yeung uses the oak tree trunk to highlight the unspoken language of public sex. The show runs until the 26th May. And Yeung is now representing Hong Kong at the 60th Venice Biennale.

    • Henry Steiner@M+, A Passion for Silk@City U & in the studio: RUMBU

      Henry Steiner@M+, A Passion for Silk@City U & in the studio: RUMBU

      Later on today’s show, we’ll catch up with countertenor RUMBU. He came to our studio in May of last year while still a student at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. Now he’s graduated, and he’ll be back with us to keep us up to date with his latest music and projects. First though, a man whose works you see every day. You might even have samples in your wallets or pockets right now, or you may have encountered them on drink boxes or sugar packets, in shopping malls, hotels, and even here at RTHK. He is Henry Steiner, a designer who has for decades been creating graphic identities for both global and local brands.

      For thousands of years, silk, the delicate yet durable natural fibre known for its lustre, shine, and strength has been associated with beauty and luxury. At the Indra and Harry Banga Gallery at the City University of Hong Kong’, you have a chance to learn more about silk’s 2000-year journey to the rest of the world in the exhibition, "A Passion for Silk: The Road from China to Europe".

    • Interview with film director Martin McDonagh & in the studio: Pianist Jerold Chu

      Interview with film director Martin McDonagh & in the studio: Pianist Jerold Chu

      Pianist KaJeng Wong came to our show a few weeks ago to give us a preview of this year’s Music Lab Festival. The festival’s still under way, but one of the highlights so far was the recent concert by pianist Jerold Chu. Jerold and his band will be with us later on the show to tell us more about his original music compositions.

      But first, movies. Some film directors like to use the same actors over and over again. This repeated actor-director dynamic can be seen in the work of such directors as Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg and Quentin Tarantino. Playwright and film director Martin McDonagh recently reunited two actors with whom he’d last worked in 2008, and for him and for them the old chemistry was still there. In March, McDonagh was here to attend the Hong Kong International Film Festival. We went to talk to him.

    • Le French May: Breakdance Symphonic, Fabien Merelle@Kiang Malingue & in the studio: French Baroque Music

      Le French May: Breakdance Symphonic, Fabien Merelle@Kiang Malingue & in the studio: French Baroque Music

      This week’s show is very much a French affair. In the second part of the programme, members of Hong Kong’s Concerto da Camera Baroque Ensemble will be here to tell us about their upcoming concert of French Baroque music and dance. Also on the subject of dance, although not in the Baroque style, “Breakdown Symphonic”, presented as part of this year’s Le French May Arts Festival, combines music and modern movement styles. French conductor Zahia Ziouani and her Divertimento Orchestra have joined forces with the City Chamber Orchestra of Hong Kong and choreographer Mourad Merzouki to create a show very much designed to break boundaries.

      Baroque music’s heyday in Europe ran roughly from 1600 to 1750. One major influence was the Renaissance revival of ideas from ancient Greece and Rome. While Italian Baroque is characterised by its communicative and complex nature, French Baroque is known for its expressiveness and its richness. On 11th June, Hong Kong’s Concerto da Camera Baroque Ensemble is presenting a concert of French Baroque music and dance. And we have some members of the ensemble with us right now.

      Artist Izumi Kato, Wataru Yamakami@Wamono Art & in the studio: CCOHK's "Shark Symphony"

      Sharks were swimming in our seas more than 430 million years before the first humans appeared. It’s fair to say that as a species we pretty quickly developed a wary attitude towards them. The fact is though that we’re a far bigger threat to them than they are to us. And that’s the subject of a recently premiered local musical production “Shark Symphony”. We’ll be talking to two of its creators in part two. Japanese artist Izumi Kato, who grew up in the coastal area of the Shimane prefecture in Western Japan. It’s the myths and folklore of that area that provide the inspiration for the humanoid figures in his work.

      Japanese artist Wataru Yamakami says that ever since he was a child, he’s had doubts about reality, as well as fears that everything that happens in this world may be a trick or a fiction. Here at the wamono art gallery we’re currently getting the opportunity to step into Yamakami’s “World Of The World”.
