Opening the Kuo Pao Kun Festival 2012 is 11 • Kuo Pao Kun Devised, a deconstructed-then-reassembled performance pieced together from 17 of Kuo’s most poignant works. Taking the helm of the creative process is promising Director Liu Xiaoyi who will lead 10 young performers over a rigorous four-month rehearsal and training exercise. Their work draws strongly from Kuo’s scripts as the starting point for their creative exercise. More importantly, it will initiate a dialogue between Kuo and the youth in theatre today. This site-specific performance will take place within Stamford Arts Centre, the place that was once Kuo’s office and rehearsal space.
The most important aspect of an arts education for a child is its integration within culture itself. Culture sets forth the foundation on which a country is built upon: its direction, pathways and values. The education of arts and culture very much emphasizes the development of character.
