Company details

The West Kowloon Cultural District brings together art, education and public space. Our Performing Arts Division supports the production, presentation and learning of performing arts of all disciplines – including xiqu, dance, music, theatre and other art forms. The recently opened Xiqu Centre, our first major venue, is a world-class centre for the promotion and development of Cantonese opera and other forms of Chinese traditional theatre. Our next venue, Freespace, scheduled to open later this year in the centre of the West Kowloon Art Park, comprises a black box theatre, rehearsal studios and live house venue presenting innovative, contemporary performance across all disciplines. With planning and construction for more performing arts centres under way, we are establishing a performing arts environment in Hong Kong that enables artists and art groups to collaborate and grow together. By supporting local and regional creators, and promoting artistic excellence and diversity, we are building a new model rooted in international experience and local knowledge, establishing a wider audience for all types of performing arts, and positioning Hong Kong performing arts firmly on the world stage.
