All Theatre Art Association is an international multimedia production company founded in 2004
by Hoi Chiu (Hong Kong) and Maggie Blue O'Hara (Vancouver)
Currently based in Hong Kong, ATAA has created original shows and toured internationally, with appearances in England, China, Macau, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, Korea and Canada. Workshops are held in conjunction with many of these shows, teaching puppetry, mask, storytelling and performance arts, often with a focus on environmental awareness.
Maggie Blue and Hoi Chiu bring an astonishing array of talents to their collaboration: writing, producing and directing their ATAA shows and commissioned events; creating hand-made puppets and props; costume and set design; original music; choreography, and more. They are dedicated, full-time professional artists whose partnership in work and in life - they were married in 2006 - fuels their creativity and passion for their art.
A very special recent addition to the All Theatre's repertoire:
Sand Painting: Mesmerizing on-the-spot art created in sand by Hoi Chiu and projected onto giant screens, inspired by the impermanence of Buddhist mandalas and the tradition of Chinese caligraphy characters. Contemporary visuals performed to DJ music, or a classical Chinese feeling can be shared by being accompanied with a musical duet of flute and erhu.
A children/family performance, Prince of Ocean Waves and The Moon Goddess with Maggie Blue singing/ storytelling and Hoi Chiu sand painting is available.
Also see "Brothers of War" for a sand painting theatre show that is available for touring now.
