Amidst the Wind tours to Daegu and Niigata


Amidst the Wind is a feast of the most exhilarating dance excerpts from CCDC productions in the past two decades. This mixed bill is handpicked by CCDC Artistic Director Willy Tsao and features works by renowned choreographers who make Hong Kong their base, including Tsao himself, Helen Lai and Sang Jijia, as well as recent creations from new stars in choreography, Dominic Wong and Noel Pong. From scenes in a living room filled with sorrow to a shopping mall full of fun, taking inspirations from the Chinese classic Dream of the Red Chamber to Western literary masterpiece Kafka’s Metamorphosis, Amidst the Wind distills the essence of CCDC into one unforgettable evening that reflects on our time and our city.
