On the day, the hotel invited Ms. Lu Sha, a famous local sand-painting artist to work with special kids form Yuan Ping and Ren Ai special education schools, as well as the hotel guests, to paint on the reusable shopping bags in the lobby.  A total of 120 shopping bags were used, which spread 16 square metres. Guests and kids involved in the painting campaign received a complimented shopping bag each. By doing this, the hotel hopes to focus on fundamentally changing people’s attitude and behaviour about plastics and creating a catalyst for a significant reduction in plastic pollution.

Local Comedy Stands Up At SZN COMEDY Open Mic Night

I’m at my first standup comedy open mic night in Shenzhen.  A small, respectable-looking Chinese woman takes to the stage to do a set. I’ll be honest with you. She wasn’t exactly what I had in mind when I imagined the type of people performing.

 

Within a minute, she’s made more dirty jokes than I can keep track of and she’s doing an impression of oral sex on stage. Half the audience bursts out laughing while the other half don’t know where to look. Either way, she has got our attention.

 

By the time she has walked off stage, she’s left us with one of the raunchiest sets I’ve seen live. As I was going to find out that night, that’s what the Open Mic Night organized by SZN COMEDY from Eastern Liberty is all about. It’s about providing local comics a platform to perform, giving audiences an alternative to the party scene, and ultimately, connecting those audiences with these comics in a meaningful way.

 

Earlier that night, I sat down with Mr. Ryan from Eastern Liberty, which organizes these open mic nights as well as monthly shows. Through our chat and the night that followed, I was introduced to an exciting and burgeoning scene in Shenzhen.

 

Whenever a new scene emerges in a city, it’s curious to know what pushed the people involved to make it happen. For Mr. Ryan, he couldn’t believe that a city like Shenzhen didn’t already have a comedy community.

 

“I was going down there to Hong Kong once a month or so for an open mic, but I started thinking why a city like Shenzhen didn’t have something like this. I did a bit of research and found out that people had tried to do one-off shows every now and then, but there wasn’t any sort of stable organization that the comedians can count on being there.”

 

Looking around the open mic show that evening, the scene seemed well developed. Mr. Ryan was laidback as the venue gradually filled up with regulars who greeted him as they passed us at the bar. There was a relaxed vibe and everyone seemed comfortable in their own skin. In the very beginning, as Mr. Ryan recalls, it was somewhat more hectic.

 

“Back in 2016. Our first show was Cinco De Mayo in Frankie’s, Nanshan actually, and they gave us the opportunity to use that space. It was a free show and so everyone was really excited for comedy and it was Cinco De Mayo so it was some party. That day that had to be around a hundred people. The crowd was kind of like a wild animal that night. So we learned. We got to control the crowd a little bit.”

 

Like any good comic, SZN COMEDY took some pointers from that first show and made some adjustments. Mr. Ryan found it made a big difference.

 

“We started selling tickets to the show in advance so people started becoming a bit more invested in the show. They are not going to just laugh when they are supposed to laugh, but they are not going to just be on their phones all show, because they paid to be there.”

 

One of the things I was most curious about coming into the show was the makeup of the crowd. I was wondering if it would it be mainly expats or would locals come down to the show too, and beyond that, how did the composition of the audience influence the type of jokes being told.

 

“I think that’s one of the things that people get excited on our scene. You’re going to see tonight that around half the crowd is going to be Chinese and the other half is expats, and from that half, everyone is from somewhere different. I think that helps a little bit because it keeps everyone fresh, friendly, and open.

 

I just try to feel the room out when I’m hosting. If it’s mostly expats, foreigners, whatever you want to call them – us – then yeah, you just adjust a little bit. You can add more cultural references, but with Chinese, their laughs might come more from reactions and your expressions on your face and your body language.”

 

You can see what he means with regards to how different parts of the crowd respond to different material. One American comedian who has come all the way from Hong Kong performs a set of spot-on impressions packed full of pop-culture references. A big chunk of the audience is in stitches, but for others, the references are maybe too obscure. While later another American comedian gets up, this time from Guangzhou. His set is full of energy as he relates his experience of an expat living in China and the other sections of the audience find it easier to connect to what it is he is saying.

 

It’s interesting to talk to Mr. Ryan because while he started out in the scene as a comic traveling to Hong Kong to perform at open mic nights, he no longer sees himself as a comedian per se. For him, it’s more important for SZN COMEDY to provide a platform for local comedians.

 

“I honestly don’t do sets anymore. Our company focuses on bringing comics and crowds together. I think sometimes that fails because the people that are organizing are trying to be the stars of the show. Right now, everyone that is involved is comfortable because our organization doesn’t run like that. We generally just want to make a good product for the city.

 

We try to get the word out as much as we can about local comics because that’s really what this scene is about. We really try to grow the scene here with local comics.”

 

It’s an approach that has helped some local comedians start to make a name for themselves. There are a few comics who started out at open mic that are now doing paid shows in Shenzhen and elsewhere in the PRD area. When you hear Mr. Ryan talk about these guys, you can tell he’s genuinely invested in seeing them be the best comics they can be.

 

“Troy Lewis is the big up and comer in Shenzhen right now. Recently, he did a show in Shuiwei. Amazing show. High energy. He’s putting in a lot of work and it’s paying off. He was in the Dongguan show we did a few months ago. Dongguan loves Troy Lewis. Just to be able to say he’s part of the Shenzhen scene is just great, because we’ve been doing shows together for years now.

 

Linus Leas is another up and comer. He came onto the Shenzhen scene a few months ago, but his stuff is very fresh. He was opening the Dongguan show as well and the experience he grabbed that night he can apply it to all the material he is writing.”

 

As luck would have it, Leas actually popped into the open mic night later that evening to perform a set and it’s clear to see why Mr. Ryan is so excited about him. Leas is Cambodian-American. As an Asian-looking expat living in China, he’s got a rich amount of material to mine. While hearing about the typical expat experience in China might be a bit too familiar for some, Leas occupies a space which feels much fresher.

 

Leas’ set is undoubtedly one of the highlights of the evening, but in truth, I had a great time throughout the night. Whether it’s a first-timer getting up on the stage or a comic working on material for their next show, there’s just a really relaxed and positive vibe going on. It’s something that Mr. Ryan touched upon when explaining why they do these open mics.

 

They offer something for comics working on their set. “There’s always some crowd to perform in front of here. And I think that’s what comedians need. They need reactions from a real crowd. You will see people doing new jokes, fixing old jokes. You can’t do that on a paid show.”

 

Yet it’s also a safe environment for those who are just starting out. “We try to get that vibe. Super relaxed, no pressure. If you don’t want to go on stage, then that’s cool. If you do want to go on stage, then we will kind of help you out.”

 

Meanwhile, it’s about offering something different for the people of Shenzhen. “I think people are trying to find an alternative to that party scene, and that’s kind of what we are. Yeah, we are still at a bar, and yeah, you can still get a drink, but nobody is out there to get drunk. It attracts a certain type of person too. Generally, the people that come here are good people.”

 

Ultimately, it’s about bringing together foreigners and expats together for events and to share in something they are all passionate about.

 

“There’s too many expat-only events or Chinese-only events, and the only other thing that brings these people together are parties. A concert is another one, but how often is that? So this scene, even if we only get 20 or 25 people, for a crowd, it’s cool, because in any other situation that would never happen. So that’s something that we actually try to focus on.”

 

Through SZN COMEDY, Eastern Liberty organizes an open mic night every Thursday at Vicha Restaurant & Lounge in Futian. Performers should sign up by 9 pm and the show begins at 9.30pm.

 

Eastern Liberty also hosts regular paid shows. They are typically held twice a month, with one show in Shenzhen and one on the road in either Dongguan, Guangzhou, or Hong Kong.

A Different Kind Of Fun From ZIP Improv Group

So I’ve found myself at a dinner party. The host seems like a normal enough sort, but then the guests start arriving. The first seems to be only interested in the neck of the host. Matters only become stranger when the next guest arrives. He seems to have a problem with his backside that attempts to suck in all those who are nearby.

 

Eventually, the host turns to the rest of us watching. “Okay, Simone is a vampire. I guess Aaron’s bum is a black hole.”

 

The rest of the group clap and cheer enthusiastically. Laura is right.

 

“Shall we play another game of Dinner Party?” asks someone in the group.

 

“Let’s do it,” says another and a new host exits the room while the rest brainstorm fresh identities for the guests.

 

This may seem like an unusual evening for most. For ZIP improv group, however, it’s all part of a normal rehearsal.

Let me rewind for a moment to the start of the evening. I’m there to interview the ZIP improv group. A band of young performers who get together regularly to put on improv shows all round Shenzhen. ZIP has kindly allowed me to join in with one of the rehearsals before an upcoming performance.

 

While waiting to meet Aaron, the group’s English member, I’m left to wonder what to expect from the rehearsal. I must confess that I did not know a great deal about improv apart from a few episodes of Whose Line Is It Anyway?, but I’d heard great things about ZIP from those who had been to their shows and I was eager to experience it for myself.

 

I imagined it would be a lot like standup comedy, but what I would come to discover is that there is a great deal more to it than that.

I meet Aaron downstairs on the street and together we head up to his colleague Malone’s apartment where the rehearsal is to be held. It’s your normal apartment, but some adjustments have been made for this evening. A large space had been cleared in the center of the living room that would prove important and there was a white board set up with a list of games that I would learn about later. By the window, I noticed a copy of The Upright Citizens Brigade Comedy Improvisation Manual.

 

Some of the others have already arrived before Aaron and myself, and it’s not long before the apartment fills up with performers. There’s Malone, our welcoming host, along with his cat. Busy writing games on the whiteboard is Laura with Lost Star and Simone stood either side of her making suggestions. Brandi is preparing to warm up with Steven. Arriving fashionably late are Mario and Steve. Finally, there’s Aaron, the group’s token Brit bringing a welcome dose of English comedy.

At that stage, I do start to wonder if this is going to be awkward. After all, it’s a relatively large group of people standing up in front of each other and basically saying the first thing that comes into their heads. Couldn’t it get a bit embarrassing?

 

After a couple of beers and a few warm-up games though, everyone is relaxed. The games appear to be there to get people loosened up both with speaking and moving. One game involves a call and response of random noises while another is best summed up as a really intense game of tag.

 

The group is ready to get started and so I take a seat. Despite it being my first time and it was only a rehearsal, rather than a show, I had a great time.

It was funny. In the same way a standup show is funny. There was a fair share of witty comebacks, great one liners, and surreal improvisations.

 

But it’s not just funny. It’s also fun, and rather exciting too. It’s that sense that whatever is being said or done in that moment is being so for the very first time. Nothing is rehashed. Everything is original.

Furthermore, it’s fascinating to see these people working together. It’s to see them reacting and riffing with each other in the moment.

 

The games they play are great at getting the most out of the performers. They help throw up the type of crazy scenarios that improv performers thrive in, which in turn, the audience loves.

 

One such game is Storyteller. This game involves one performer assuming the role of an author typing out their latest novel. Two other performers are then tasked with acting out and adding to what the author creates, and in turn, the author reacts to how the story pans out. It’s a game full of potential for the performers to creatively tie each other up in.

 

Another equally widely creative game is That’s Not How You. This game can involve the entire group and begins with two performers acting out a scene. The other performers can tag themselves in at any moment. The aim is for them to take something that is said or done and totally twist the context without changing the actual words or action. This game brings some of the biggest laughs of the evening.

But credit where credit is due. As great as the games are, this is one talented bunch of performers. More so, it’s a cast where each person brings their own personality and style to the games.

 

What really impresses me, or what I really respect, is how passionate each and every one of them is about ZIP. It’s clear that these are people performing for the love of what they do. It’s heartening to see people pursuing their passion for no other motive other than to promote it to a wider audience.

By the end of the rehearsal, I have went from knowing next to nothing about improv to wishing the session didn’t have to end while eagerly awaiting the next show.

 

Improv is very much an inclusive experience. The performers are open and friendly, the audience is encouraged to get involved, and there is a feeling that everyone is in on the fun. It’s very infectious.

 

So what are you waiting for? Get involved with the one of the most fun nights you can have in Shenzhen.

For more details on upcoming shows or if you have any other queries about ZIP Improv, you can contact group member Aaron on WeChat (ID: Azzadoc).

Review: The first Hyatt Greater China Pastry Masters Workshop

A SWEET ENCOUNTER

Hyatt held its first Pastry Masters Workshop for Greater China and

previewed the Romance Collection by the Grand Hyatt – 2018/19 Garden Series

The first Hyatt Greater China Pastry Masters Workshop was successfully held at the Grand Hyatt Guangzhou from June 7 to 10, 2018 in yet another demonstration of Hyatt’s commitment to culinary excellence and innovation. Over 40 pastry chefs from Hyatt hotels across Greater China captivated public imagination with their delectable creations, while collaborating to create ever more heavenly recipes.

“The key to Hyatt’s longstanding excellence in food and beverage is our commitment to talent development and sustaining efforts in fostering communication among our people,” said Stephen Ho, President, Greater China, Global Operations. “The Pastry Masters Workshop is another perfect platform for our culinary talents to collaborate, learn and share their inspirations and creativity through food, and allow us to provide the best of Hyatt to our guests.”

“In order to reinforce Hyatt’s culinary excellence and competitiveness, we have focused on three aspects this year – incorporating seasonal elements in our food and beverage, returning to the fundamentals, and introducing new ingredients across our hotels to improve their consistency and efficiency,” said Sebastian Wu, Hyatt’s Director of Food and Beverage. “The Pastry Masters Workshop was a demonstration of this focus and a great start for us to fulfill our ambitions for the future.”

The highlight of the Workshop was the Sweet Encounter Dessert Showcase in the afternoon of June 9, where all the pastry chefs showcased their extraordinary creations. The spread featured a smorgasbord of breads, ice cream, cakes, chocolates, cookies, candies and all kinds of desserts for different dining occasions including coffee breaks for events, high tea offerings, buffet selections, as well as wedding banquets. In addition, guests had the opportunity to observe the pastry masters up close and personal at work while participating in the culinary creative process. To top it off, the attendees were indulged with the Pastry Master Afternoon Tea creation and a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails.

A preview of the “Romance Collection – 2018/19 Garden Series”, an experiential wedding concept introduced by the Grand Hyatt brand for its hotels in the Asia Pacific, was also unveiled at the event. The Romance Collection, which is launching in China this year, offers spectacular nuptial celebrations the likes of which no one has ever seen. Following the garden theme –Royal (mint and peach), Blossom (pink and grey), Enchanted (emerald and gold) and Lavender (purple and green) – the four sensational concepts promise an immersive, multi-sensory experience using customised video and animation, bespoke scent, specially composed music, and breathtaking arrangements of flowers and foliage to create an event to remember.
