Based on traditional paper-cutting techniques, artist Meko Cheng breaks the boundaries of traditional paper-cutting.

As a stage lighting designer and paper-cutting artist, Lau Ming-Hang’s “Pop-up Book Theatre” combines paper-cutting art, theatre and lighting to create a special form of performance. The performance brings together the “movement” of the theatre and the “stillness” of paper-cutting art, integrated by the special effects formed between light setting and paper-cutting. The artist adopts a flexible approach in storytelling to present lively and interesting stories that are suitable for all ages. The performance invites everyone to participate and interact with the artist under the light and shadow following the plot and become one of the creators of the story.

作為舞台燈光師及立體紙藝藝術家,劉銘鏗的「立體書故事劇場」集合剪紙藝術、劇場與光影,創造出極具特色的劇場表演形式。表演把劇場的「動」帶入紙藝的「靜」之中,配合燈光與紙雕結合所產生的特別效果,以及藝術家說書表演的靈活手法,演繹出生動的,老少咸宜的有趣故事。演出將邀請每一個人參與到故事當中,在光與影之中,在劇情的變化中,與藝術家產生互動,成為故事的創造者之一。
