JOCKEY CLUB New Arts Power | ArtWalk X The Mills
“Threading Through Time” Series — A Factory Cabaret – The Memory of Herbs:
O Theatre Workshop
Adapted from the prose fiction of the same title by Chan Wai, the factory-style cabaret The Memory of Herbs unfolds the struggle of a common factory girl in the midst of change. The blooms and glooms and the ups and downs of her life story mirrors the evolution of Tsuen Wan as a small down steered by Hong Kong’s fast economic development.
This cabaret is conceived and curated by the renowned stage director Olivia Yan, together with music composers and live singers Veronica Lee and Lily Hong from girl group Arm Charm, visual designer and stylist Kay Wong from Fashion Clinic, as well as singer/song-writer Olga Chung and actor Fung Chi Yau. The team has transformed The Mills into a music stage for a retro-yet-original cabaret show to celebrate the legends of Hong Kong.
***This programme is conducted in Cantonese and audience will seat on the staircase***

About Art Walk X The Mills “Threading Through Time” Series
We thread our way through each other day-after-day, expecting that we are so similar – yet so different.
Moving within the complex web of different people and architecture across the city, this is where the relationships of time, place and people weave in and out like yarn threading through us.
Concluding the Jockey Club New Arts Power (JCNAP) with this grand finale event, Threading Through Time engages literature, theatre, installation arts and more in a collaborative, cross-medium arts project. Leveraging on the creative framework derived from The Memory of Herbs, a prose fiction by local writer Chan Wai-yee (Chan Wai), it weaves in five unique art groups formed by the JCNAP artists and other performing groups: Lam Fung X Kay Chan, Ivanhoe Lam, Hugh Cho X TS Crew, Ata Wong X Théâtre de la Feuille, Olivia Yan X O Theatre Workshop. They explore the very fabric of our lives and see the threads of times unfold. From the textile industry, community and livelihood, to the entire city at different ages of development, the artists draw out the muse within and knit into their imagination.
A 3-part interactive installation will take place alongside with 4 spectacular performances at various sites of The Mills, running from 10 to 19 January 2020. Come explore and be enchanted by the muse encapsulated in this artistic and delicate fabric of memory, threading through times and distance between the past and present, reality and imagination.
