Stage drama is now getting more and more popular in Hong Kong. More people are willing to pay for it and are even starting to love it. A typical stage-drama-nut,( Joey Leung who dedicated in acting stage drama with his actor name Pumpkinjojo for 10 years) was invited to the general assembly of Journalism and Communication Department of Hong Kong Shue Yan University yesterday. Apart from being an actor, Joey is also a director as well as a script writer of stage drama. He shared his stage drama life and how to create with heart during the assembly.


A Beautiful Coincidence

Joey Leung’s talent in acting stage drama was revealed after he was nominated to be the best male actor in the 2001 Hong Kong Stage Drama Award. Though he lost in 2001, he proved his talent and was awarded it in 2004. By that time, Joey was considered to be a super star of stage drama. “Acting stage drama was not my dream at first and in reality, acting stage drama is hard to make a living. Hong Kong is unlike other big cities such as London and Chicago that value stage drama. People in Hong Kong are not that willing to pay for it and even the government does not pay much effort and resources in developing and advertising stage drama. In Hong Kong, it is very hard to make a living as an artist. An artist would not be valued and has no job stability and job security. However, I got a chance to act stage drama coincidentally after my HKALE and I found that I had talent and interest in it,” Joey said.


Stage Drama is the transmission of Love

Joey Leung stressed that stage drama is an art with the heart of creativity and only those creations with heart can touch audiences and transmit messages. “Stage drama is full of life. A stage drama must be live and it is something very private that exists only between actors and audiences. During the live performance, there is an invisible connection between the two. To me, it is meaningless to video-record the live show since third-person can never feel the connection. All the creations of stage drama must be related to love. It is because only love can make the drama remarkable and impressive. It is meaningless to pay and watch a stage drama to kill time or gain some laughter. As a script writer and actor, I would like to transmit messages about love to my audiences and I hope they can get the message and learn from it. I take every act seriously and I put great effort and sincerity in every performance. This is the best way to express my deepest gratitude to my audiences,” Joey said. He further explained that homosexuality is a good topic in stage drama because it can add in dramatic and sensitive elements in the creation to make the stage drama more attractive.
