F:A:C:E: Choice & Sharing Session
F:A:C:E: Choice provides recommended arts and cultural programmes to students throughout the year. To widen students’ horizons in arts and culture, ticket subsidies will be offered to full-time HKU students to encourage the appreciation of different art forms, performances, or films.

This time we have picked GIRLS AND BOYS, co-produced by Edward Lam Dance Theatre and Rice Ballers Hong Kong, a Cantonese version of the same-named one-woman show by Dennis Kelly.

Interested students can apply via the link below, register for the performance, and discuss with Mr. Edward Lam and Ms. Jen Lam, director and actress from GIRLS AND BOYS in the sharing session. A full ticket subsidy will be offered upon attendance of both the performance and the sharing session.

F:A:C:E: Choice為同學介紹文化藝術節目,提供港大全日制學生門票資助,鼓勵同學欣賞不同類型的表演藝術或電影,擴闊學生對文化藝術的視野。今次我們挑選了「非常林奕華」與年輕創作劇團「一舊飯團」聯合製作的《#女與兒 GIRLS AND BOYS》,參加同學可透過Bio連結報名觀看《#女與兒 GIRLS AND BOYS》,然後出席藝文「傾」,與導演林奕華先生及主演林珍真進行交流,便可取得門票的全額資助。
