From Heart To Hearts For Hearts (29 July-10 Aug 2020)
“This is probably the most meaningful arts project that I have undertaken in my 25 years of pursuit in theatre!“
– Beverly Yuen (Artistic Director)
Beverly Yuen , a local theatre director and a physical theatre performer, expresses with movements and songs resonating from the heart to visual artist Kylie Boo’s 15 drawings and paintings on congenital heart defects to raise awareness on the struggles of Congenital Heart Defects (CHD) patients. Kylie Boo was born with a rare congenital heart condition, and she hopes to portray the daily struggles of the patients through this project.
“Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter... It was inspired when I was in the hospital, not knowing how many seasons I can get through.”
– Kylie (Artist)
