We could have done a little more rehearsals and preparations, and maybe appointed an assistant director to check the details before the performers went on the stage, while our director Fenfen had to focus on her performances on the day, to make sure every single details including costumes, subtitles, backdrops were spot on. For instance, during Imperial China, the collar should have left on top of right not the other way around, and one of the performers wore that wrongly during matinee; the narration in the tea ceremony film was quite fast leaving audience not much time to read. The headpieces for one of the dance pieces were too big and did not quite reflect the style during the period when the dance was from.
To sum up, this project was good success with a unprecedentedly large scale involving much more people, a wider audience and high-profile media coverage overseas. In the meantime, we learnt a lot in term of producing, directing, the content of the show and cultural significance and will improve from that and continue presenting quality work to the audience in the future.
