Music to be heard, words to be spoken.

Let there be poetry and songs.

Following Street Music Series and House Music Series, brought to you by Hong Kong Arts Centre (HKAC), we are  thrilled to introduce the brand new crossover of music and literature -- Spoken Words Music Series (SWM). Let’s join the bards, ride on the rhythm of music, go on a journey of stories and be touched in their own words. The performance offers both live-streaming and live performance, connecting “us” from afar and enabling an engaging artful experience. Fancy to write your own piece and chant with live music? Creative writing and performance workshops will surely gather kinfolk of SWM lovers, not only to share your ideas, but also be able to be part of the creation!

Pop down the rabbit hole, float in the convergence where reality and fantasy meet. The unconscious mumble in your sleep could be the absurd imagination finding release, or the conversation with someone in your dream. Let's share the sleep talking through music and words, dream together and wake up together in spoken words music.
 
Music and writing workshop on sleep and dream. Participants will be guided through a creative writing process and incorporate them with songs, hand-pan and hand drum music.

Vol. 1 "Ciao!"
 

 

“Ciao” is more than a mere farewell, sometimes, it’s also a promise.

Recount your friendship with your friends far away from home through the monitor that seems so close, yet so far. “Ciao!” Seeing you again, with a decent farewell to one another in return.
