The fourth edition of Freespace’s collaborative research and experimentation programme Choreographer and Composer Lab continues to bring professional artists together to explore new approaches to composition in music and dance and develop partnerships.

The two groups of this year’s artists are: choreographer Mao Wei, trained in Chinese dance and contemporary dance, and street musician Hakgwai, who specialises in indigenous instruments; and contemporary dance artist/photographer Terry Tsang King-fai with the musician pair – bassist Jonathan Yang and lead singer Laujan from post-punk band David Boring. Mao Wei and Hakgwai are both inspired by Spanish Flamenco. In their collaboration, they aim to explore their identities through different ethnic dances and music. As for Terry, Jonathan and Janice, they don’t limit themselves to performing solely music or dance in their new work. They aim to expand and express their own language broadly through cross-genre collaboration.
