Our theme for this Aside is
“Life Is Better When You Are Laughing.”
When was the last time you had a belly aching, eye tearing, nose snorting bout of laughter? That long? Having a great sense of humour is important in all aspects of our lives. Live to laugh, laugh to live. Laughter is truly the best medicine when it comes to helping us feel emotionally, mentally and physically young. Pay attention to those who makes you smile and laugh, and spend more time with them. E. E. Cummings said, “The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.” So, let’s not waste another day!

Aside derives its name from the theatrical term of “taking an aside,” where characters break the fourth wall to address the audience directly with their insight, secret aspirations, and original perspectives. The presenters at Aside are individuals who have found inspiration in their craft and in turn have shared their inspiration with us. They utilize their discipline to communicate with creativity and breach the gap between artist and audience.
「旁白在紅房」得名於 “taking an aside” 之戲劇術語，表示表演者為了以較直接的方式表達他們的真知灼見和獨特的觀點而打破隔離觀眾與舞台的隱形屏障。本活動的表演者靠著精湛的技藝取得靈感，進而與我們分享他們的成果。他們並利用紀律與創造力來銜接藝術家與觀眾之間的差距。
