Alfie’s photos from the dress rehearsal of No Exit. Like me, Alfie does many things… this time he translated the play, did the graphic design, and took the photos.
No Exit has finished as quickly as it started. We managed a full house every night, which was wonderful and unexpected. It was a very good experience to have a post-show discussion every night and hear a lot of different opinions and questions from different audiences. I’m sure this will be very helpful when we come to stage it fully.
I wrote a piece for HKELD’s regular Artist of the Month section, which they were kind enough to publish for December.
HKELD (I believe it’s pronounced ‘heckled’) is the main English language theatre website in Hong Kong, with reviews and listings for all the English language and English surtitled productions here. They reviewed reviewed Superheroes Don’t Give a Shit! back in October, very kindly even though we didn’t really have full English language accessibility by that time. Anyway, it’s very popular with the expat theatre community here and well worth a look (don’t be put off by the colours).
Photos by the talented Alfie Leung (also the translator and graphic designer for No Exit). Everything has come together very quickly and we’re already opening the show tomorrow. It’s running from 10-13 December at 8pm at We Draman, and it’s a rehearsed reading with a post-show talk. It’s definitely towards the more active end of the rehearsed-reading spectrum, with blocking, lights, sound, costume, props etc.
We started rehearsals for the rehearsed reading of No Exit that I’m directing (new translation into Cantonese by Alfie Leung, produced by We Draman). Here are some photos from the first rehearsal – by Mag Tong, Tang Wai Kit and Michelle Li, with apologies for not teaching them how to use the strangely configured focus buttons on my camera. The show is on very soon, from the 10th-13th December.
