We live, according to Foucauldian theorists, in a power relations, where we understand our opportunities and our limitations as such an insightful way to open up the problem of government, with which to afford people in constant struggling positions with knowledge. Is a new knowledge of cultural management in heritage performing art taking shape for sustainable development? In what way artists are being trained to differentiate mission and market, or precisely put it the difference between market-oriented mission and mission-driven market? With what consequences for performing art knowledge of artistic life today? These questions set a framework of analysis in the traditional master-disciple relationship of Cantonese Opera in Hong Kong, and its current institutional changes to teacher-student relationship in tertiary education as a new herding power. Along with the development of Foucauldian studies, Nikolas Rose attempts to analysis power relationship in a way to revitalize the creative and active life by “governing at a distance”. This paper will go beyond it with the concept of "governing an ordered chaos" for the 21st century.
