6th World Congress for the International Drama/Theatre and Education Association; Film Review: "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix"; More from the Palace Museum; Trace Elements Parkour Team (17 Jul 2007)


Underway in Hong Kong this week is the 6th World Congress for the International Drama/Theatre and Education Association. It's more succinctly known as IDEA. Previous world congresses have been held in Portugal, Australia, Kenya, Norway, and Canada. We talked to two of the theatre practitioners who are visiting about their views on the interface between theatre and education. With just a few days to go until As we went to air there were just a few days to go until the publication of the seventh and final book in the Harry Potter series, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows". The movie of the fifth novel in the series "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" is also the number one movie in the United States right now, and it's showing in Hong Kong. At some cinemas it's even being shown – partly - in 3D. Gary Pollard's been to see it. Much of the focus on treasures from Beijing's Palace Museum currently on display at the Museum of Art has been on the scroll "Along the River During the Qingming Festival", but there are 15 other national treasures in this exhibition. We look at a few of them. Trace Elements is a team of free-running or parkour enthusiasts from Australia. The activity originated in France, and involves getting from Point A to Point B, not always by the simplest or most straightforward route. The trace Elements Team is in the studio, and give us a demonstration in a nearby park.
