After successful tours to Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing and Taipei, Edward Lam Dance Theatre’s hugely popular Art School Musical returns to Hong Kong for its fourth restaging adapted for The Box at Freespace.
Premiered in 2014, Art School Musical is a contemporary adaptation of the classic story The Butterfly Lovers that transforms a traditional tale of heartbreak into a story about a search for identity. Featuring 18 original songs, and a cast from Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan, the plot centres around three young students and their struggle to find meaning in love, art and life.
Alongside 10 performances of the show, director Edward Lam, the creative team and invited guests also lead a series of public seminars on the musical creation process.
