CCDC Sets Sail on

 As If to Nothing Asian Tour

 

Internationally renowned choreographer Sang Jijia leads you through the ashes of time, to recreate the memories between you and me.

 

City Contemporary Dance Company (CCDC) is proud to present As If to Nothing, by the internationally renowned choreographer Sang Jijia in Japan and Taiwan. The production will first visit Niigata, Japan on 28 August 2015 at the Theater, RYUTOPIA Niigata City Performing Arts Center, before travelling to Taipei, Taiwan from 2 to 4 October 2015 at the Taipei National University of the Arts Dance Theatre.

 

Known for combining intense physical movement and unique rhythm, Sang Jijia has choreographed and performed for many well-known dance companies in Europe and Asia. As If To Nothing has won two 2010 Hong Kong Dance Awards (“Outstanding Dance Production” and “Outstanding Achievement in Choreography”), and was performed to great acclaim in Beijing, Guangzhou, Singapore and Florence.

 

As If To Nothing examines the passage of time in the stream of memories. Enter the maze of déjà vu, trapped by our own memories. In every delicate moment, memories seem so close and yet so far. It is slowly swallowed by time. Struggling between remembering and forgetting, scattered names, distorted faces, floating time, transforming scenes and familiar plots, what is left inside is emptiness. In this misplaced world, what is real? What is fake?

 

Featuring electronic music by Dickson Dee and video design by Adrian Yeung, As If To Nothing is an adrenaline-packed and interactive multimedia work. This tour-de-force is an extremely physical and emotional performance by the flagship contemporary dance company of Hong Kong. Let’s look for memories destroyed by time.
