My Life at Li Po Chun United World College of Hong Kong 2011-2013

Voices of ECE

Nachdem wir den European Cultural Evening wochenlang vorbereitet haben, war er ein voller Erfolg. Wir sind dabei praktisch durch Höhen und Tiefen gegangen, wie es eben so ist, wenn man sich für etwas ins Zeug schmeißt ;)

Zum einen haben wir ziemlich früh angefangen, alles zu planen und zu organisieren: wir hatten bei ACE miterlebt, wie am Ende alles erst auf die letzte Minute geklappt hatte und das wollten wir vermeiden. Bei den abendlichen Proben war es dann leider teilweise bitterlich kalt und trotzdem gingen wir in dünnen Kostümen, Mützen und Handschuhen die Tänze tausend Mal durch. Von diversen Überdehnungen beim Can Can taten uns noch am Abend der Aufführung die Beine weh und am Morgen nach der Aufführung blieben die meisten erstmal den halben Tag lang im Bett, bevor sie sich an die nachzuholende Schularbeit setzten. Trotzdem wurden wir immer wieder für unsere Show und Aufführung gelobt – verdient, würde ich meinen ;)

Hier ein paar Schüler- und Lehrermeinungen zum ECE 2011 … :D

“I think that the Europeans this year probably knew that they could not get away with creating a show just of different dances, which is what happens with many other cultural evenings. And for this reason, I think that they worked harder on creating a clever, witty and enjoyable script, which was truly wonderful. The balance between dances and funny skits was fantastic, and it was a show that I truly enjoyed.” – Co-Year aus Brasilien

“It was so cold out there in the courtyard .. But I just realized that it was freezing after the show as I was so into the show – which was so organized and amazingly perfect… It was awesome and I can imagine how much effort you guys put in it because I saw all Europeans being tired the last two weeks practicing till 1 in the morning… and I’m sure it must have been so hard to be organized, as different people have different opinions … But you guys did it !! Well done Europeans!” – Co-Year aus Burma

“Funny, smart, lively, and yes, no endless dances in interchangeable skirts, no Eurovision (yeah!) and I have to say, very very funny Scandis.  And yes, the Finns.  Loved it.” – Sylla, mein Geschichtslehrer

Who said we couldn’t make it snow in Hong Kong! Who thought . . . it wouldn’t melt and we’d have to pick each snowflake :s“- unsere betreuende Lehrerin Sandy, die uns geholfen hat, den Papierschnee nach der Show wieder aufzulesen :D

ECE was just ExCEllent! I really loved the show and everything about it. ECE was much more welcoming and the whole evening gave me a chill of Europe in many ways. The performances were really good. A good example for other Cultural Evenings to follow.” – Co-Year von den Malediven

“I loved all the scenes I saw being rehearsed in the afternoons and found the ECE students very friendly” – Willow im Namen meiner Tutorenfamilie :)

“I would like to congratulate the ECE team on a job well done.  The table decorations and the profiteroles were splendid.  The thoughtful hot chocolates were a happy surprise.  The stage transitions were smooth, the pool changing rooms usage as exits were well thought out.  I humbly enjoyed the Carols ‘Silent night’ and ‘Santa Lucia’ to commemorate those festivities as the scenes moved through Europe throughout the Roman ages to the present day.  In all, I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the time spent watching and experiencing ECE under the moon lit sky.” – Leiterin des Fachbereichs Chemie

Zum Schluss haben die ganzen Statements auf Facebook die Stimmung vermutlich ebenso sehr gut beschrieben: “♥ ECE” ;)
