Amateurs Made Up the Industry

Reporter:--095124 楊秀文 YEUNG, SAU MAN 2011年9月27日 (二) 23:13 (UTC)


Every year, many students graduate from The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. Some of them may throw themselves into the entertainment industry. (When performing stage, most of people) will think of graduates from The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. But actually there are still a lot of amateur actors playing a part in drama without official training in school.

Joey Leung, a senior stage performer and the Best Actor of Hong Kong Drama Awards, said amateur actors can be better than those officially trained.

“Watching a stage performance by amateur actors is more interesting,” he said. “Sometimes, drama performed by officially trained actors could be a bit stereotyped by their tutors. The advantage of amateur actors is they can be more creative about the idea and messages of the drama. I can see a different world from their dramas.”

For the amateur actors, no matter they are students of other faculties or businessmen, they still maintain their occupation, (that’s why Joey admired them so much,” besides from their original work, they have to squeeze extra time to rehearse their drama, therefore they really have hearts).”

People always think amateurs are not as good as officially trained. He said,” I do not think in the same way. Amateur actors are definitely not worse than those officially trained. This depends how you define the word professional. Amateur actors are also professional. They also can produce good pieces.”

The Hong Kong drama industry is a combination of amateur and officially trained actors. Therefore Joey thought amateur actors should be proud of themselves,(” drama performance is being better and better these years. Optimally live performance should be the basic and final of arts. Therefore amateur actors, even teenagers drama societies, will play an important role in the future. You have to be hearted to keep the drama industry going, and they are the hearted ones).”

Hong Kong has produced about (300 plays of dramas per day) which is the highest among the world. Joey said Hong Kong has some advantages to achieve this. "Audiences in Hong Kong have a relatively higher ability of acceptation. In foreign countries, one play can (show cast) five to seven times and series are often produced to (remain continuity). This does not work in Hong Kong. Hong Kong audiences are easily bored by one drama and can accept many dramas in a short period of time compared with those audiences in foreign countries.”

“The second advantage of Hong Kong to be a suitable location for drama performance is freedom on the stage. The government barely has any limitation of performances on stage, so we can say or do anything we want when performing. This advantage is good news for us to be more creative and interactive,” he said with a smile on his face.

Joey made a lot of future assumptions on the drama industry in Hong Kong and on his career. (As he always said,” the most important thing is still fundamentally your heart of performing).”
