Promoter

Silver Arts advocates the meaningful possibilities seniors have in the arts.

Organised by the National Arts Council since 2012, Silver Arts is an annual festival that collaborates with artists, arts organisations and community partners to integrate the arts into the lifestyles of seniors. From performances to workshops, seniors can showcase their creative talents through co-created content or learn a new skill, enhancing their overall well-being. The festival offers opportunities for seniors to share their stories that shape our collective memories, and forge stronger inter-generational understanding.

Into its sixth edition, this year’s festival will take place over four weeks from 1 to 24 September island-wide. With an extensive line-up of arts programmes and activities, there will be something for everyone. Bring your parents, grandparents, family to enjoy and experience this year’s festival offerings!

《单日不可停车》及《棺材太大洞太小》是已故戏剧大师郭宝崑两部广为人知的独角戏。自80年代中写成以来,两部作品数次以英语及华语呈献过。通过这双场演出,九年剧场艺术总监谢燊杰导演将和演员韩乾畴及郑光辉一起创作,以方言演出来探索这两部作品里头的文化情怀与基层情感。勿错过这个以粤语及潮语呈献的双场演出。

No Parking On Odd Days and The Coffin Is Too Big For The Hole are two of late theatre doyen Kuo Pao Kun’s most famous monologues. Both works have been staged in English and Mandarin numerous times since they were written in the mid-1980s. In this double bill, Nelson Chia—the artistic director of Nine Years Theatre—works with actors Hang Qian Chou and Tay Kong Hui to explore the cultural sentiments and grassroots sensibilities of these plays by staging them in Chinese dialects. Come catch this double bill showcase performed in Cantonese and Teochew.

This programme was originally part of The Vault: Dialects & Dialectics, a programme of Centre 42. It was first performed in May 2017 at Centre 42, created/directed by Nelson Chia.
