CCDC 2016 Dance Season

Firmly Rooted         Widened Horizons

Advance booking starts from 3 March 2016


In 2016, City Contemporary Dance Company (CCDC) is thrilled to present a series of dazzling productions that will blossom in Hong Kong’s concrete jungle, rallying the best of Chinese Talent to create dance for the world.


The Season is opened by longtime CCDC dancer-choreographer Dominic Wong’s Little Pieces in April, an emotional full-length production that ponders on the bonds and links within human connections. Fragile Beauty premieres in June, choreographed by the internationally renowned Tibetan artist Sang Jijia, describing with abundant emotion and strength the eschatological scene that follows on from prosperity. In August, an outing for all the family – Journey to the West, choreographed and directed by CCDC Artistic Director Willy Tsao – featuring Gregory Charles Rivers and singer-songwriter Jonathan Wong. In December, another homegrown CCDC dancer-choreographer takes the stage: Noel Pong will co-create She Says, He Talks with Vietnamese choreographer Anh Ngoc Nguyen, whose star and creativity has been ascending, especially since receiving the 2015 Hong Kong Dance Awards – Outstanding Achievement in Choreography. Lastly, 2017 Dancers’ Homework comes back in January 2017 after last Season’s successful showcase of young CCDC choreographers.


From screen dance to dance documentaries, CCDC Jumping Frames International Dance Video Festival enters its 13th year. There will be premieres of new commissions as well as a handpicked selection of sought-after dance films and documentaries, bringing dance in digital media to a wider audience.

Programme Highlights of 2016 Dance Season


 Little Pieces It’s always the little pieces that make the big picture                Choreography: Dominic Wong

Memory is incomplete. A puzzle. Every experience, every treasured relationship, they’re pieces. In Little Pieces, celebrated choreographer Dominic Wong with his stage designer Yuen Hon-wai explore possibilities – in costume, stage design, lighting, choreography – guiding the audience, encouraging them to complete their own puzzle.


15~16.4.2016 8pm | 16~17.4.2016 3pm

Studio Theatre, Hong Kong Cultural Centre

$220, $160


Fragile Beauty Like fireworks, everything disappears…                            Choreography: Sang Jijia

Fireworks dazzle and amaze – yet they are ephemeral. Internationally renounced choreographer, Sang Jijia explores fireworks as a metaphor, questioning the human experience. Life, death, fight, protection, pain, longing… Mind transforms circumstances, middle-aged Sang Jijia refuses to repeat himself and now explore warmth and affection – a shift evident in this new work for CCDC, in which we unearth and recognise tenderness in our hearts.


3~4.6.2016 | 8pm

Auditorium, Kwai Tsing Theatre

$250, $180, $140


Journey to the West                         Choreography: Willy Tsao, Ronly Kong, Peggy Lam, Shirley Lok

Contemporary Dance for Families                Guest Appearance: Gregory Charles Rivers, Jonathan Wong

Journey to the West is a household name where wildest fantasies about Monkey, Pigsy, Sandy and Tripitaka have enchanted generations of readers since the Ming dynasty. CCDC brings this classic on stage and audiences will surely be delighted by its refined dance moves and stunning stage effects.


26~27.8.2016 8pm | 28.8.2016 3pm

Auditorium, Sha Tin Town Hall

$220, $180, $140


She Says, He Talks                                        Choreography: Noel Pong, Anh Ngoc Nguyen

A brand new partnership by “Outstanding Choreography” Winners – Words can’t fully express it, only dance can

In the transition from 30 to 40, young men and women become mature and review the certainties and possibilities of their lives, experiencing the ups and downs of emotion with mixed feelings. Noel Pong from Hong Kong and Anh Ngoc Nguyen from Vietnam will surely delight, forging ability and aesthetic. This is a chance to see their choreographic best, exclusively on the same stage, appreciating each other.


9~10.12.2016 | 8pm

Auditorium, Kwai Tsing Theatre

$250, $180, $140


2017 Dancers’ Homework Extraordinary creativity. Remarkable Choreography

As one of Hong Kong’s most creative dance ensembles, CCDC brings refreshing new voices through Dancers’ Homework, a showcase for CCDC dancers’ choreographic talents. All four performances of 2016 Dancers’ Homework were completely sold out and received positive feedback from press. We’ll work hard to find more exciting new works for you in 2017!
