Specially devised for secondary school students, The D. H. Chen Foundation – West Kowloon Tea House Student Matinees extend arts learning beyond the classroom and allow students to learn about xiqu and traditional culture in a stimulating, inter-disciplinary way.

Through narrated performances presented by the Tea House Rising Stars Troupe and interactive facilitator-led discussion sessions, students explore the art of xiqu and traditional Chinese culture and its relevance to contemporary society. They also take part in a tour of the Xiqu Centre to learn about its architectural and design features, and how these support the artistic requirements of xiqu productions.

To support further teaching and learning activities in schools, the programme includes tailor-made teacher training workshops and learning packs* providing an introduction to Cantonese opera and the programmes.

Applications are welcome from local secondary schools. The student matinees programme runs from 2019 to 2021 and is generously supported by The D. H. Chen Foundation.
