City Contemporary Dance Company 2017 Asia Tour

Amidst the Wind to Perform in Korea and Japan in October

City Contemporary Dance Company (CCDC) is excited to bring Amidst the Wind to Japan and Korea in October, performing at the Daegu Asia Contemporary Dance Festival on 11 October and at the Niigata International Dance Festival on 15 October.


Committed to showcasing the diversity of Hong Kong culture around the world, this year alone CCDC has performed Amidst the Wind at the Beijing Dance Festival in July and travelled to Israel in August with 365 Ways of Doing and Undoing Orientalism to Tel Aviv’s renowned contemporary dance hub Suzanne Dellal Centre for Dance and Theater. The performances were well received with positive responses and CCDC will continue to take our works abroad each year.


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.
