'This is a collection of text and images documenting the "Journey to the East '97" programs. It includes creative notes, scripts of performances, critical essays, and visual records of the installation art. Scholars, directors, installation artists, art critics and performers coming from Australia, Canada, the United States, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Mainland, all gathered in Hong Kong during the first three weeks in January 1997, to participate in the programs of the 'Journey,' which was part of the First International Conference on Urban Culture. The programs, include stage performances, installation art exhibition, arts criticism seminars and open forums on cultural policies. The performing art section was re-run in June 1997 in London, invited by the 9th London International Festival of Theatre.' (Excerpt from 'Preface' by Danny Yung, p.6)
