Music and theatrical performances bring artistic expression to life in the MTR in a rich variety of entertaining ways at the "Living Art Stage".
Every Friday evening from 6:00 pm to 6:45 pm, the Central Subway of Hong Kong Station becomes a stage for professional artists and amateur performers to share their diverse abilities and talents.
Performances include everything from modern pop and hip hop music to classical performances, traditional Chinese music, theatre and dance. There are also special performances during festive periods.
Members of the public can stop by to relax and take a break from the pressure of city life at the Living Art Stage.
***Programme in June will be cancelled***
A 19th century form of music a cappella is enjoying renewed interest in Hong Kong and a series of a cappella performances were held through the "art in mtr - living art" programme at Hong Kong Station. Meaning 'in the style of the chapel' in Italian, a cappella is a vocal performance without the accompaniment of musical instruments. Instead, the performers emulate the sounds of instruments with their voices and microphones.
