Post-Perception/Transcendence
 

City Contemporary Dance Company (CCDC) is proud to present a new production Post-Perception/Transcendence from 31 March to 1 April 2017 at Grand Theatre, Hong Kong Cultural Centre. The full-length production is choreographed by Sang Jijia, with Tang Shu-wing as dramaturg and Dickson Dee as composer.

 

“All phenomena are illusionary and unsubstantial”. Following his emotional letter to Hong Kong, Fragile Beauty, world-renowned Tibetan choreographer 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/text 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 magnificient wotk of the season.

 

Sang Jijia has been acclaimed as “the most perfect dancer”. The winner of the Gold Medal in the Modern Dance section of the Paris International Dance Competition in 1996, he was hailed by the Guangdong Provincial Government as “The Star of the Century” in 1997. In 2002, Sang Jijia was chosen by the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative to study choreography under William Forsythe in Germany. Afterwards, he stayed with the Frankfurt Ballett and the Forsythe Company as assistant choreographer and dancer. He is now the resident choreographer of CCDC.
