HONG KONG, APR 16 – Artistic director Tang Shu Wing expressed his appreciation about the government’s financial support on artistic performances in Hong Kong in the past years, but he said that the direction of cultural policy is in need of revision.


Tang Shu wing, the former dean of the Hong Kong Academy of Performing Art (HKAPA), said that the government had granted a lot of sponsorships to the cultural industry over the past 20 years and their effort on developing the West Kowloon Cultural District is undeniable.


However, he suggested that the government should pay more efforts on the way of sponsorships and change their policy on art development in order to make theatrical performances more appealing to locals.


“Nowadays, the core value of government sponsorship is on a social service base, the government needs to change this concept and have a clear direction on why they sponsor a particular show,” said Tang.


In order to increase the attraction of theatrical arts, Tang said that it is important to produce long-term shows that are “new” and “unique” with their regular performance venues.


“It is impossible to replace Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables with musicals of similar theme, but we can produce shows that can strike a balance between recreational and economical purpose which attract more locals,” said Tang.


Tang is now running a theatre group called Tang Shu-wing Theatre Studio, with the aim of brining theatre works of the highest quality to the maximum number of people, as a support to the cultural industry in Hong Kong.
