For the second year of the three-year CCDC in Residence programme, Freespace partners with City Contemporary Dance Company (CCDC) to present three events based on the theme of “I/YOU LOOK AT YOU/ME”.

Ticketed events include Mr Blank – a dance theatre experience co-created by CCDC resident choreographer Sang Jijia and award-winning playwright Janice Poon. The piece challenges the use of surveillance cameras in our everyday lives, and features the use of closed circuit television inside the performance venue. Social Distancing Theatre Joyeux Noël, the other ticketed event, is a solo dance piece choreographed and performed by CCDC resident artist Noel Pong. During the performance, the audience will be invited to move freely inside the venue while respecting social distancing rules. In some sessions, they are welcome to take photos and post on social media.

The third event – a free live streaming event curated by CCDC’s Artistic Director Designate Yuri Ng. The event will enable the public to view Hong Kong dance artists rehearsing live at The Studio, thereby demonstrating how awareness of an audience can influence the artists’ creative process.
