CCDC in Residence 2021 – Danzcation

Overview

A boundary-pushing adventure in contemporary Hong Kong dance theatre

Description

This November at Freespace, as part of our 2021 CCDC in Residence programme, CCDC presents the City Contemporary Dance Festival under the theme "Danzcation". 

 

Join us for an adventure in contemporary Hong Kong dance theatre that will open your eyes to local choreographic talent and offer new ways of experiencing your home, your world, yourself. The boundary-pushing programme, presented by locally trained and locally based artists, blends dance, film, theatre, music, song and storytelling and offers multimedia explorations of the dark and light complexities of life, dreams and identity.

 

Led by CCDC’s Artistic Director Yuri Ng, the programme includes the performances Home Sweat Home with Yuri Ng, Anna Lo and Rick Lau, Kung Hei Fat Choy with Ergao, and The Room Service with Sudhee Liao, Alice Ma and Chan Wai-lok. There is also the contemplative dance video installation exhibition, Me, a Man by Hui Ka-chun, and outdoor weekend performance De-islandsation choreographed by Noel Pong and performed by the young dancers from WuDaoQingNian. Other free programmes include "Dialogue: Danzcation of Dance Artists", "A Date with Preloved Clothing - Upcycling Workshop" and "DIY Trash-to-Treasure Crafts - Upcycling Workshop".

 

CCDC in Residence is part of West Kowloon’s commitment to establish long-term partnerships with local and international arts organisations. In this programme, Freespace partners with CCDC to present a dynamic contemporary dance experience for audiences of all ages.
