Macao to hold 28th art festival with over 100 activities

Xinhua, April 26, 2017 Adjust font size:

The 28th Macao Arts Festival will kick off on Friday with over 100 art activities, the special administrative region's cultural department said on Wednesday.

Macao Cultural Affairs Bureau, organizer of the art festival, said the opening ceremony will be held at 7:40 pm local time, April 28, in the lobby of the Macao Cultural Center.

This year's edition will present 25 shows and exhibitions as well as an outreach program.

The bureau said this year's festival, featuring "Heterotopia" as theme, establishes a diversified space away from reality through texts, stories, images, music and imagery.

The opening show will feature a reinterpretation of Schubert and Ravel's classics by world renowned North American modern dance company Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane. The same company will also present the hypnotizing performance A Letter to My Nephew on May 1.

From April 28 to 30, the Soundscape Theater will play "Back to the Catastrophic Typhoon of 1874", the original novel of which was awarded at the Macao Literature Competition.

On May 3, the concert "The Soul of Macao" by the Macao Chinese Orchestra will lead the audience on a journey between Macao and Beijing Opera, in its representation on stage of a real, historical story of personal romance and love for the homeland. Endit
