“No Discipline” is a creative initiative with a playful heart and free spirit. Defying conventional boundaries, it is a catalyst promoting new methods of expression and presentation.
No Discipline Limited (NDL) was founded by independent curator – Orlean Lai, in 2019. NDL serves to unleash imagination and creativity through broader cross-disciplinary collaboration. One of its initiatives is to assemble a creative laboratory where intermedia experiment and cross-cultural collaboration can generate synergy.
As a modern convener of encounters among cultural/ arts practitioners, NDL continuously push the limits of curatorial visionary, with a primary focus on contemporary arts/ performance. Its past co-curated projects include dialogue series Performance Matters, (2020), and the Hong Kong Arts Development Council commissioned Finale programme for the Jockey Club New Arts Power – Tables of Contents (2021) – exhibition & lecture performances – from knowledge to performativity exchange. They are both co-curated by Orlean Lai, Dick Wong (choreographer/ director/ performer) and Lai Sim-fong (dramaturge/ theatre practitioner); a commissioned community art project series Mountain No Mountain (2021-22), co-curated with Vangi Fong (visual and community art curator).
NDL has recently curated and produced an auditory performance – Truth within Earshot? (2021)with composer/sound artist Alain Chiu; a land|scape performance – Objects Lie on A Table with visual artists Ivy Ma and Ng Tsz-kwan (2021); an installation-opera-trance – Somnium by Nerve (2022); and another community art project series Playground as Metaphor (2022-23).
With the support from Asia Cultural Council, NDL is now in partnership with HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity in organising an International Artist-in-Residence – Something Foreign in Hong Kong. The programme serve as a platform for cross-cultural dialogue, sharing of identities, values and visions, in the shaping of arts. It provides opportunity to build lasting connections on ideas and experience sharing between people.
