The Vagina Monologues is a poignant and humorous take on female sexuality. The stage performance by local theatre group Playhouse will take place at the McAulay Studio of Hong Kong Arts Centre from tomorrow until Sunday.
Directed by Monoko Cheng, the show is based on the work by Eve Ensler, who interviewed more than 200 women from different backgrounds about their memories and experiences of sexuality. Through the witty and compassionate monologues delivered by female performers, the performance gives voice to women's deepest fantasies, fears and anger.
The show is performed in Cantonese (Thursday 8pm; Saturday 8pm, and Sunday 3pm) and English (Friday 8pm, Saturday 3pm; Sunday 8pm). Tickets are priced at $120 and $60 (students), and are available at HK Ticketing on 31 288 288. All proceeds will be donated to the V-Day Foundation.
Flight is a joint venture between local and overseas artists combining dance, music and video at the Drama Theatre of the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts from tomorrow until Saturday.
Although originally inspired by The Story of Lin Chong Taking Flight in the Night, from the Chinese literary classic The Water Margin, the performance is an experimental take exploring the notion of taking flight.
Directed by local choreographer Mui Cheuk-Yin and Taiwan-born, Paris-based choreographer Lin Yuan Shang, the shows start at 7.45pm. Tickets cost $200, $170 and $140 (half-price for students) and are available from HK Ticketing.
