    Situated in Cambridge House within Taikoo Place, the new ArtisTree has been upgraded into a flexible 650m² dynamic space completed with professional theatre-standard stage lighting and audio-visual technologies.

    ArtisTree hopes to foster the emergence of new art forms and host a diverse range of original works by mid-career, young talent and artists, as well as to present original and creative productions that have never been staged in Asia or Hong Kong.

    Don Taylor, Director, Office, Swire Properties, welcomes the media to an early ‘sneak peek’ media tour of ArtisTree.

    The new ArtisTree is a key element of a wider vision, part of a HK$15 billion redevelopment project being undertaken within Taikoo Place. As an integral part of Taikoo Place, ArtisTree provides a compelling venue that can host events and creates that lifestyle ‘stickiness’ after work hours. It is endeavouring to make arts and culture more accessible to everyone. The new venue will continue to introduce the Hong Kong public to unique arts programmes and contribute to the cultural life of Taikoo Place and Hong Kong.

    In celebration of the new ArtisTree’s official reopening on 8 June, audiences can enjoy four intriguing productions by local and international artists, including ContempoLion, La Traviata, Folk and Animatorium. All complimentary tickets were snapped up in just five days. To nurture local talent, Swire Properties will also offer masterclasses for aspiring performers a rare opportunity to be coached by an award-winning dance choreographer Caroline Finn and for opera-buffs to witness award-winning opera director Nic Muni at work while he is coaching professional singers. The masterclasses are now available at Ticketflap (www.ticketflap.com) on a complimentary basis for both performers and audiences.
