New Vision Arts Festival

Continuous shows at the Black Box Theatre ● Boundary-breaking performances at multiple locations ● Participatory activities

This Autumn, British Council and the New Vision Arts Festival 2014 join hands to bring to you an interesting and exciting series of arts programmes!  From 31 October to 2 November, Kwai Tsing Theatre will be transformed into an energising open arts arena filled with an array of creative possibilities. During this mini-festival within a festival, British art collective Forest Fringe will link up with local artists to utilise every corner of the theatre building and beyond. Non-stop performances at the Black Box Theatre will be joined by a range of exhilarating happenings taking place simultaneously in the Foyer, Plaza and surrounding environs, manifesting the spirit of “art without borders”. A limited number of 1-day passes are available for ticketed shows at the Black Box Theatre. Don’t miss this ultra-cool New Vision initiative!

About Forest Fringe
Forest Fringe is a collective of British artists that seeks to create a different space for artistic exploration at festivals and beyond. Starting out at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2007, the collective’s adventurous spirit and innovative vision have fostered experimental arts environments around the world, bringing together artists and audiences in new ways and contexts that celebrate the unpredictable and the unusual. Forest Fringe staged its first programme at the Forest Café in Edinburgh, establishing an immediate name for itself. The collective went on to successfully introduce the “mini festival” idea in other major cities, including London, Dublin, Lisbon, Bangkok and Yokohama.

Forest Fringe Will Make All Your Dreams Come True

Co-organised by the British Council and West Kowloon Cultural District Authority, Forest Fringe Will Make All Your Dreams Come True turned participants’ most vivid dreams into silent films of surreal and beautiful sequences at Freespace Fest 2013 in December.

Festival audiences shared their dreams with the film crew which, in turn, shot a three-minute silent film with a vintage Super8 camera. In the film, the audiences and crew act out dreams at interesting locations on the festival site.

The film crew comprised members from Forest Fringe, a community of UK artists that originated from the Edinburgh Festival and transformed local students into actors and directors with a three-day workshop on film-making and theatre.
