Ningxia in the northwest province will enter the time of the two sessions from the 19th. Affected by the epidemic, 22 Hong Kong and Macao committee members attended the meeting on the “cloud”.

Gao Zhisen, a member of the Ningxia CPPCC Hong Kong District, director and screenwriter of Hong Kong film and stage plays, said in a telephone interview with a reporter from Chinanews.com that “a hundred stories are better than a glimpse”, and Hong Kong literary and art workers should go to the mainland more often.

Gao Zhisen, who has directed many films such as “Happy Ghost” and “Happy Family”, has frequently exchanged and cooperated with the mainland literary and art circles in recent years. Since August 2021, he has cooperated with writers and theater troupes in the mainland to direct the stage play “Fifteen Days in Two Beijings”, the opera musical “Little Star”, and the opera musical “Mazu”.

In Gao Zhisen’s view, strengthening cultural exchanges between Hong Kong and the mainland and learning from each other’s strengths will be of great benefit to both sides. “In Hong Kong, stage performances are greatly influenced by overseas art styles such as Broadway, while mainland art forms contain more traditional Chinese cultural elements. Recombining the characteristics and elements of the two can become new ideas.” Gao Zhisen introduced , During his tenure as the chief director of the opera musical “Mazu”, he communicated a lot with Cantonese opera workers in Guangdong and experienced a lot. In the end, “Mazu” adopted a combination of opera performance and musical performance, and the effect was good after rehearsal .

“Art is very inclusive. Hong Kong literary and art workers should go to the mainland to travel more, have more contacts, and cooperate more. Only by visiting the mainland in person can they truly understand the progress made in the lives of the people in the mainland.” Gao Zhisen said that the culture of the mainland The background is very deep. Hong Kong has rich experience in stage narrative skills and repertoire operations. Both parties should learn from each other with an inclusive attitude and form a virtuous circle of cultural exchanges.

Gao Zhisen said that the advancement of the construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area will also bring benefits to practitioners in the field of culture and arts in Hong Kong. “The Greater Bay Area has a population of more than 72 million, which will bring Hong Kong’s literary and art workers a wider range of creative themes, as well as a wider audience and a broader market for Hong Kong’s literary and artistic works.”

Affected by the new crown pneumonia epidemic, exchanges between Hong Kong and the mainland are increasingly relying on the “cloud”. Gao Zhisen believes that online exchanges can bring a lot of convenience, but offline cultural exchanges are also irreplaceable. It is hoped that the epidemic will pass soon, and more Hong Kong literary and art workers can go to the mainland to exchange and study.

As a member of the CPPCC Port District, Gao Zhisen has also been concerned about the cultural development of the mainland. “When I was in Ningxia, I watched the local acrobatic drama “The Sun on the Rock”. The music was well done and the performance was very good. There are many good works in the mainland, which are actually quite suitable for overseas. I can also talk to some literary and art circles in Hong Kong. Our friends will help to promote it together.” Gao Zhisen said that Hong Kong literary and art workers can use their personal connections to promote more excellent works of literature and art from the mainland to overseas, so that the world can better understand Chinese culture.
