No Discipline Limited

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 and current projects include dialogue series Performance Matters, co-curated by Orlean Lai, Dick Wong (choreographer/ director/ performer) and Lai Sim-fong (dramaturge/ theatre practitioner) in 2020; commissioned community art project series Mountain No Mountain (2021-2022), collaborated with Vangi Fong (visual and community art curator). NDL is also planning an international artists-in-residence programme Something Foreign, which was temporarily obstructed due to the pandemic situation.

NDL has recently curated and produced an auditory performance – Truth within Earshot? with composer / sound artist Alain Chiu, and a land | scape performance – Objects Lie on A Table with visual artists Ivy Ma and Ng Tsz-kwan in 2021.

Orlean Lai

Orlean Lai founded her production unit – orleanlaiproject (www.orleanlaiproject.net), focuses on curating hybrid collaborations across performing art and visual art, in exploring new possibility of presentation formats and fuse the boundary of art forms and mediums.

Orlean has curated Zoo as Metaphor (2014 at Oi!), which has attempted to adopt exhibition space for an experiential journey of narrative and performance; while the new edition of Zoo as Metaphor 2 (2018 at New Vision Arts Festival) has evolved from a crossed form of exhibition and performance into an experiential journey of social experiment.

Other collaborative projects include: Songs of Portrait (2018) with Nerve and Cheuk Cheung expanded the medium of documentary beyond the screen to live performance on stage, illustrating the lives and practices of performers from the traditions of Kunqu, Noh and Italian opera. In 2017, orleanlaiproject also featured the intermedia collaborative performance, Claustrophobia with Vee Leong, Tam Wai-ping and Yuen Cheuk-wa, which experimented with integrating installation, sonic writing, and soundscape into a parallel narrative performance.

In 2018 & 2019, orleanlaiproject was commissioned by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council to curate the Finale programme series for the Jockey Club New Arts Power. The projects were: Swim Walking (2018) – a series of art journeys held in the Central / Sheung Wan district; and Wild is the Grass (2019) – a series of site-responsive performances held at the heritage site of Tai Kwun.

In 2019, she founded another organisation – No Discipline Limited, aims to foster more cross disciplinary experiment and cross-cultural collaboration.

Orlean was Asia Cultural Council Fellowship recipient of 2016.
