 The Great Society Still


To create a chamber opera about Kang Youwei, a visionary thinker in modern Chinese history and his vision for a perfect China - his Chinese Utopia - is no easy task. Take a behind-the-scenes look at its creative process. In a series of talks, meet-the-artist session, backstage tour and exhibition, come and see all aspects of this production up close.

A special screening of Evans Chan's documentary Datong: The Great Society followed by a discussion between film director Evans Chan - librettist of the HKAF-commissioned chamber opera Datong: The Chinese Utopia - and Harvard University Edward C. Henderson Professor of Chinese Literature and HKU distinguished fellow in Humanities, Dr David Wang. The pair explore the idea of utopia in contemporary Chinese society in what promises to be a thoroughly thought-provoking session. Don't miss this. In English/Putonghua.

The appearance of Professor David Wang in this event is supported by HKU's Hong Kong Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences, which is hosting Professor Wang as Hung Leung Hau Ling Distinguished Fellow in Humanities.
