A Nocturne in the Key of Air

Breathing life into big data and animated by children’s imagination, Aria is an ethereal encounter of vocal performances, dance and immersive light installations in a night-time conservatory. Responsive to the ongoing pandemic and a new vision for what international productions may become, the pathbreaking promenade experience unites the Grammy and Pulitzer Prize-winning Theatre of Voices, appearing via hologram, the Hong Kong Children’s Choir and cross-disciplinary artists in a song of air beyond the Anthropocene.

Hong Kong Park’s Forsgate Conservatory animated by light installations after dark.
Aria is a promenade experience woven with music, art and dance that takes visitors through a night-time greenhouse.
Views and facts on air pollution, gathered by big data technology, blend with art.
Theatre of Voices (Denmark) shares the stage with Hong Kong Children's Choir – a new vision for a more sustainable and resilient form of international productions.
Unbounded by travel restrictions, Theatre of Voices performs in Hong Kong through holography.
