Programme Description

There were cities, glorious as fireworks in the sky, vanished at the height of their magnificence. The loving dwellers within were scattered to the four winds. No, this is not our story. We have walls built with sturdy concrete and the endless bustle of city life. We have ambitions burning in heart, a cold shoulder to every stranger we pass. It is our story, perhaps. Look up and we see fireworks burn. Look down and we find ourselves standing in desolation. Don’t tell them: this is not the same city.

Tibetan choreographer SANG Jijia and his long time collaborator experimental musician Dickson DEE join hands again in Fragile Beauty after well-received As If To Nothing. The production concept grows from the nature of glorious yet ephemeral fireworks. As a calm spectator, SANG Jijia makes use of his impressive dance technique and engrossing music to tell stories. Everything disappears, like fireworks.
