Programme Highlights of 2017 Dance Season

 Post-Perception/Transcendence The moment you create the reality                     Choreography: Sang Jijia

Following his emotional letter to Hong Kong, Fragile Beauty, world-renowned Tibetan choreographer Sang Jijia has created a new work to examine the many faces of life. Post-Perception/Transcendence travels down the path of life, from the mundane to the monumental, facing life, death, and fate. Making this epic journey with Sang are dramaturg Tang Shu-wing, composer Dickson Dee, set designer Leo Cheung, costume designer Cindy Ho Pui-shan and lighting designer Low Shee Hoe. This will surely be the most magnificent work of the season.

Grand Theatre, Hong Kong Cultural Centre

$280, $220, $160

 

Why Not Kill Us All… My Kin, My Tribe, My Fellow (Who am I? What is mine?)         Choreography: Bruce WONG

When did you learn of fear? When did “we” become “they”? Essentialise human beings. Self-match the legitimacy of camouflage. Rationalise weapons. Group those standing still as “others” and there is a reason for the massacre.

Martial arts and dance come from the same origin. Prizewinning practitioner of Baguazhang and Neijia Quan, Bruce Wong ponders on the world in martial arts and dance after his last choreography How to Become … showcased in the mixed bill programme Eureka in 2015.

 

26~27*.5.2017 8pm | 27~28.5.2017 3pm

Studio Theatre, Hong Kong Cultural Centre

$220, $160

 

The Little Prince A fairy tale for all ages; Never forget, always young at heart        Choreography: Dominic WONG
Sand Art and Live Performance: Hoi Chiu

Programme of International Arts Carnival 2017           Original Music and Live Performance: Patrick NG

Leaving his beloved rose, the Little Prince from asteroid B-612 starts his space odyssey. On his journey, he comes across the Earth, where he meets a pilot lost in the Sahara and makes friends with a fox and a snake... This story of love and courage eventually leads the lost pilot to the meaning of life hiding in the dark.

Based on The Little Prince, this dance theatre for families integrates contemporary dance, literature, music, live sand drawing and animation – an inspired, unexpected and unique interpretation of this well-loved classic.
