Adaptation Workshop: From Hong Kong Tales to Theatrical Play

For centuries, myths and folklores travel through time, allowing us to better understand our present days. Without these stories, there are no human groups, no civilization, no history. But for artists, how can mythical tales be presented on a performing stage? 

Reflected from his past productions of literature adaptation, French playwright and director Nicolas Kerszenbaum is going introduce and instruct the techniques of rewriting myths and legends into theatrical play. In this 12-hours workshop (including writing, directing and playing), participants will work in groups and attempt to adapt Hong Kong folk stories into plays. 

The workshop consists of four sessions of three hours each, participants are required to attend all sessions.

Conducted in English
