HKREP's "Principle", Australia's indigenous art @ Gagosian & in the studio: Dan Zhu


HKREP's "Principle", Australia's indigenous art @ Gagosian & in the studio: Dan Zhu

With the social distancing measures in place and restrictions in performance venues, art groups and organisers have to diversify. Hong Kong Repertory Theatre’s production about a school scandal, “Principle” original schedule in September has been cancelled. But recently it offered some limited shows and on-demand viewing on the internet.

Australian indigenous art and culture dates as far back as 60,000 years. Indigenous art often use symbols and icons in its story-telling of knowledge of the land, events and beliefs of indigenous people. Contemporary indigenous Australian art is not something one commonly find in Hong Kong. But on show at Gagosian for the first time in Hong Kong, “Desert Painters of Australia: Two Generations” showcases works by six Indigenous artists from remote regions of the continent.

Violinist Dan Zhu is recognised as one of the finest Chinese musicians on the international stage today. Some of his recent seasons highlights include duo recitals with Christoph Eschenbach on Mozart and Beethoven sonatas at the Kennedy Center; with pianist Gerhard Oppitz at Enescu Festival and with Kun Woo Paik on the complete Beethoven violin & piano sonata cycle worldwide. He is here with us this week to talk about his concert in Hong Kong performing Beethoven & Schumann.
