EXHIBITION
Searching for Utopia
Datong and The World of Kang Youwei
Exhibition

To create a chamber opera about Kang Youwei, a visionary thinker in modern Chinese history and his vision for a perfect China – his Chinese Utopia – is no easy task. Take a behind-the-scenes look at its creative process. In a series of talks, meet-the-artist session, backstage tour and exhibition, come and see all aspects of this production up close.

 

A major commission of the HKAF, Datong: The Chinese Utopia is a three-act chamber opera that links scholar and political-thinker Kang Youwei’s utopian ideology with contemporary society. Learn about Kang, his life and his thinking. The exhibition celebrates the 80th anniversary of the first publication of Kang’s influential work Da Tong Shu (The Book of Great Unity).
