The 28th Macao Arts Festival (MAF), organized by the Cultural Affairs Bureau and themed “Heterotopia”, will be held from April 28 to May 31, establishing through texts, stories, images, music and imagery, a diversified space away from reality yet closely connected to it, bringing new possibilities to existence. Tickets will be available through the Macau Ticketing Network from 10am on March 12 (Sunday).
This edition of the MAF offers a variety of exceptional performances. The Festival kicks off with Play and Play: An Evening of Movement and Music, a reinterpretation of Schubert and Ravel’s classics by internationally acclaimed North-American modern dance company Bill T. Jones / Arnie Zane, and closes with The Seagull, performed by the Reykjavik City Theatre. On the occasion of the 110th anniversary of Chinese theatre, the Shaanxi People’s Art Theatre takes to the stage the classic Westland Feuds. Several local performances are also fascinating: the soundscape theatre play Back to the Catastrophic Typhoon of 1874, which original novel was awarded at the Macao Literature Competition; The Nether, which portrays the seemingly limitless dividing line between the real and virtual worlds; and numerous family programmes such as Rusty Nails & Other Heroes, Metamorphosis under Starry Night, A Mano, cater for people all ages to take part in the Festival.
When: April 28 – May 31, 2017
