Theatre Horizon Presents


The New Directors’Movement is a two-year programme introduced by Theatre Horizon. Initiating in 2017, realized in four six-month stages, the programme is dedicated to the development of emerging directors.

In recent years, Hong Kong is enjoying an increase in the number of theatre productions. Many training programmes with aims to nurture local new playwrights and actors are being run. And yet new directors are constantly in short supply. In retrospect, there are only a handful of directors working on larger-scaled productions while new aspiring directors, lacking opportunities, can only work as assistant directors or direct studio theatre works. This was why New Directors’ Movement came into being, providing a platform to prepare new directors, giving them opportunities to produce theatrical classics in medium-sized theatres.

Four emerging directors are presented in this programme. They get to choose their own teams of young performers and designers to delve into these rich classics and work on them over a long period of time. With the guidance of relevant mentors and workshops, the young directors are to establish their own style and present their works in public performances. On top of that, in each stage, there are two workshops conducted by experienced artists from overseas and a talk, provided as nourishment to the young artists. Besides developing new directors, this programme also introduces theatrical classics to the Hong Kong public.

'New Directors' Movement' is financially supported by the Arts Capacity Development Funding Scheme of the Government of the
Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
