Three HKBU students win four awards at Hong Kong Creative Drama Festival

三名浸大學生聯校演出短劇 勇奪香港創意戲劇節四獎項

Three HKBU students won four awards at the 5th Hong Kong Creative Drama Festival for their creative short plays performed jointly with team members from other local institutions. The winning teams were invited to perform at the award presentation ceremony on 23 May.

This year's theme was Healthy Lifestyle. Teams formed by students from primary, secondary schools and colleges were given limited time and a few stage props to perform short plays based on assigned topics.

Jack Yip (English Language and Literature and English Language Teaching, Year 2) won the first runner-up award and the outstanding award in the college category. His team comprised members from City University of Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Institute of Education. With a topic around the theme of "sex', this winning team's performance reflected on the detrimental effect arising from an overindulgence in sex.

Jack said that participation in the festival enabled him to put HKBU's graduate attributes Creativity and Teamwork into practice. He said: "My experience in last year's Festival sparked my interest in drama, and this was the reason I joined the activity this year. Short plays not only allowed my team to unleash our creativity, more importantly, they enabled us to experience teamwork. What's more, I was able to produce a good play with team members I had just met, and know more about myself and learn effective modes of communication."

In addition, Claudia Chu (China Studies, Year 2) and Wong Man-yee (Film and Media Arts, Year 3) received two proficiency awards for their performance with students from The Chinese University of Hong Kong and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.

The Festival was jointly organised by HKBU's Centre for Holistic Teaching and Learning and the Hong Kong Teachers Drama Association. For more details, please visit: http://www.hk-tda.com/en/node/536

三名浸大同學分別與其他院校學生組成小隊,以自創短劇於第五屆「香港創意戲劇節」大專組中奪得「亞軍」、「傑出獎」及「嘉許獎」,並獲邀在5月23日舉行的頒獎禮中演出。

今屆戲劇節以「健康人生」為主題,參賽隊伍分小學、中學及大專組,各隊伍需就預設的題目,以有限道具於限時內演出即興短劇。

由浸大葉永恒同學(英國語言文學及英語教學二年級)與香港城市大學和香港教育學院學生組成的隊伍奪得大專組「亞軍」及「傑出獎」,即興演出題目「色」,令觀眾反思過分沉迷色慾的影響。

葉同學表示,活動讓他實踐浸大畢業生當中「創意」和「群體」的特質:「去年參加創意戲劇節的經驗令我喜歡上戲劇,所以今年再度參與。演出即興劇除了發揮團隊的創意之外,最大得著是體驗群體合作的精神。此外,在短時間內與新認識的隊友建立默契,不但令我認識自己,還學習如何與人溝通。」

朱殷潁同學(中國研究二年級)和黃文意同學(電影與媒體藝術三年級)則與香港中文大學和香港科技大學學生組成隊伍,獲頒兩項「嘉許獎」。

香港創意戲劇節由浸大全人教育教與學中心與香港教師戲劇會合辦。更多戲劇節詳情可瀏覽:http://www.hk-tda.com/tc/node/536
