SHARING OF THE DAY
Art, much like travel, has the power to bring people together.
Throughout the pandemic art and creativity has still been flourishing. It has spread hope and made us more resilient. Artists have donated their talents to show their support and love for those on the frontline and neighbours in lockdown have sang to each other from their balconies and rooftops.
From our hotel in Dorsett Wuhan to our home of Hong Kong, Dorsett Hospitality International has looked over half a million quarantine guests globally, 12,000 medical frontliners in Mainland China, Hong Kong, Malaysia and the United Kingdom, refugees from Afghanistan and Ukraine as well as victims of domestic abuse in partnership with Harmony House. It has been equal parts challenging and rewarding and we feel very humbled to have the honour to help our guests travel and get home as safely and as comfortable as possible!
Art has been used in creative ways to connect us and remind us all that we’re in this together. This is what inspired Dorsett Hospitality International, in partnership with The Collective, to create this AR performance art, choreographed by Yuh Egami (with kind permission from the Hong Kong Ballet) and performed by Jennie Chou and Lee Kok Liang from the Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts, in celebration of all of us coming out on the other side and the world opening up again! Let the performance begin!
