Organised by Hong Kong Arts Festival and supported by BNP Paribas, the Artists-in-Residence programme is a unique six-month outreach project. Students from three local schools will learn and create a fascinating performance piece with guidance from PPS Danse Artistic Director Pierre-Paul Savoie and his team, alongside young local choreographer Joseph Lee.
Lecture Demonstrations – Four Introductory Talks with live demonstrations have been conducted by Joseph Lee in participating schools; these introduced the programme and PPS Danse through a series of interactive games.
Workshops by overseas and local artists – Following an audition process, participating students will go through three workshop phases conducted by Pierre-Paul Savoie, Joseph Lee and their dancers. Students will learn how to integrate dance, drama and music with skipping-rope play and ball games in order to create a theatre performance piece.
Attending Performances – Students will be invited to attend performances of PPS Danse’s Playing Hooky at the 46th Hong Kong Arts Festival in 2018.
Public Showcase and Student Showcase - Following the workshop period, students will share what they have learnt over the previous five months with their schoolmates and members of the general public in two showcase performances.
