In the Show – July 13th 2010

Art education is about many things, including learning the techniques and skills of your chosen art form, as well as its history and context. But one of the hardest things to teach would-be artists and designers is how to look at the world from a new or idiosyncratic perspective. That was the focus of one recent project at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

The Hong Kong Tap dance festival, Beat.Me.Tap.2 ran from Friday to Sunday last week. The concerts, at Sha Tin Town Hall didn’t just provide a chance for local tap dancers to gain on stage experience, it also allowed them to improve their skills by watching dancers from elsewhere.

And performing live in our studio, local indie band Chochukmo.
