Dance Season 2017

First Full-length Choreography by CCDC Dancer and Prizewinning Martial Artist Bruce Wong

Why Not Kill Us All...

City Contemporary Dance Company (CCDC) is proud to present Bruce Wong’s first full-length choreography Why Not Kill Us All…, from 26 to 28 May 2017 at Studio Theatre, Hong Kong Cultural Centre.


When did you learn of fear?

When did “we” become “they”?


Essentialise human beings. Put on the camouflage of legitimacy. Rationalise weapons. See those unchanging as the Other. And the reason for massacre is born. Virtue, Vice, Good, Bad, you reap what you sow. Yes? No? Don’t stay silent and drift along with the flow.


Martial arts and dance share one origin. Prizewinning practitioner of Baguazhang and Neijia Quan, Bruce Wong ponders on the world through martial arts and dance in his last choreography How to Become … in Eureka in 2015. From confronting one’s strengths and weaknesses, Wong extends his investigation in this new work into the world, looking into the nervous state of life and drawing experience from the choreographer and the dancers.


Wong said, “Indeed, Donald Trump, Brexit, ISIS, they are all rooted in fear. At their core is a rejection of the Other, or the creation of the Other. It’s the same here in Hong Kong, labelling a group, creating fear, which unites this group, and thus conflict is created!”
