Open Day 2014
09 March 2014‖10:00
Venue : Academy Atrium
School / Department : HKAPA 30th Anniversary
Category : Academy Events
The Academy Open Day, which each year attracts a large and enthusiastic audience, will feature performances, demonstrations and seminars, as well as visits to our costume department, scenic art workshop and other “secret spaces” where productions are put together. Inaugurated more than 25 years ago, the Open Day remains one of the Academy’s most popular public events.
To celebrate the Academy’s 30th Anniversary in 2014, an added dimension will be given to the Open Day through the installation of a work designed by alumnus Mr Albert Au (class of 1996) from the School of Technical Arts (now the School of Theatre and Entertainment Arts). The foyer will be enveloped in a large-scale network of wire structures, 3-D effects, miniature figures and projection screens to mirror the innovative spirit and creative energies of the Academy. The installation aims to transform public perception of the space, making it even more engaging for visitors by exploring new aesthetic possibilities.
To give the commission added significance, students from scenic construction, scenic art, props, wardrobe, lighting and sound will participate in the project. The result will highlight the high level of professionalism and the collaborative work of two generations of students.
