That's PRD takes a look at the best of the month in Macau:
Feb 10: Hong Kong Rock Bands Concert
Five leading Hong Kong rock bands are set to cross the Pearl River estuary this month to rattle ‘n’ shake the city of Macau. Kolor, Yellow! 野佬, ToNick, RubberBand and Supper Moment will perform a selection of their most popular songs, in what is bound to be a rockin’ and rollin’ evening!
Feb 17-18: The Procession of Passion of Our Lord
The Procession of Passion of Our Lord is a unique religious celebration in Macau. An image of Christ carrying the cross is taken in solemn procession from St. Augustine’s Church to the Cathedral of Macau for an overnight vigil and then returned through the city via the stations of the cross, accompanied by a magenta-robed escort and crowds of the faithful and curious.
Feb 17-18, time TBD. St. Augustine’s Church.
Until Feb 21: Imaginary Beings
In 2014, Ana Aragão was selected among the 200 best illustrators in the world by the renowned Lürzer’s Archive magazine. Her solo exhibition Imaginary Beings showcases a collection of watercolor and black-ink pen artworks which blend architecture with illustration to create dreamy buildings.
Tue-Sun, noon-8pm; free. Taipa Village Art Space.
Feb 23: Dance on the String
The show Dance on the Strings sweeps audiences off their feet with skillful erhu (Chinese two-stringed fiddle) performances. The award-winning pieces presented in the concert demonstrate a creative style that combines tradition and modernity and blends Chinese and Western music.
Feb 25: Brushing Up Macau
This multimedia dance performance is a fusion of dance, music, calligraphy and AR/VR elements. A novel experience, Brushing Up Macau transforms colors, lines and shapes into a mass of illusions, which is presented alongside a dance performance that blends classical dance art with modern technology.
Until Feb 25: The Memorable Time – The Traditional Handicraft Industries of Macau
