City Contemporary Dance Company 2013/14 Dance Season Kick-off Production

A Buying Game - Thinking or Feeling?

City Contemporary Dance Company (CCDC) will kick-off its 2013/14 Dance Season with its new production The Buying Game choreographed by CCDC’s dancer-choreographer Noel Pong from 26 to 28 April 2013 at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre Studio Theatre.

Noel Pong, 2012 Hong Kong Dance Award “Outstanding Choreography” winner, will lead audiences through a labyrinth made up from thousands of products as she explores the fun, struggle and emotions of our consumer culture. Is it a game of hide and seek with your favourite things, or a competition between distraction and obsession?

Together with renowned set designer Yuen Hon-wai, Noel’s new piece come up with a spectacular stage full of different kinds of consumer products such as clothes, shoes, cosmetics and books. Leaving a bare lit square stage where all dancers dance vividly on it. “To choreograph a piece where dancers dance in such a confined area have not only posted great challenges to me and dancers, but also brought much satisfaction and fun”, said Noel. Without doubt, it will bring audiences a stunning visual impact and fresh experience.

Graduated from The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts with First Class Honours in modern dance and joined CCDC in 1997, Noel has excelled in dancing for many years and turned herself a new star in choreography with Rainy Days and Mondays…, A walk on the Cloud, He Loves and She Loves, Fairy Tales – To Be Continued, Off Screen, Inside Out in Strip Teaser 2012. Many of her creations received high acclaims: Crime Scene was selected by South China Morning Post as one of the “Best Dances” in 2009; Off Screen received the 2012 Hong Kong Dance Award for “Outstanding Choreography”. In addition, her choreographic works were invited to be restaged at the Guangdong Modern Dance Festival for several times. Her works feature a sense of humour while portray realistically the people and their stories in a city. In The Buying Game, she attempt to make a breakthrough in style by conceiving the piece from a more intellectual level and poses question to audiences the way people shop and consume.
