Look Two Ways

Hong Kong Dance Portraits by 5 Filmmakers

Look Two Ways is a two-channel installation work by Tsang Tsui-shan, Hugh Cho, Elysa Wendi, Chiu Chih-hua and Remu Iwai. These five filmmakers explore the idea of portraiture through a provocation by choreographer/filmmaker Sue Healey to create two short moving portraits that reflect their current time and space and the individuals that dance within it. Reimagining their current reality, and also the future in Hong Kong, the project features different local dance artists from a range of disciplines.

  • Chiu Chih-hua: “13th, featuring Lim Wei-wei and Cai Ying
  • Hugh Cho: “Factory Alert”, featuring Steve Ng, Hochi, To Chi-sing and Kenneth Sze
  • Remu Iwai: Isle/Alley, featuring Yang Hao “Isle” and Kenny Leung “Alley
  • Tsang Tsui-shan: “Encounter”, featuring Mui Cheuk-yin and Lau So-kam
  • Elysa Wendi: “Ice & Brume”, featuring Elaine Kwok ”Ice” and Virginia Chu “Brume

Designed to extend ideas about portraiture from the perspectives of Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore filmmakers, this curated exhibition is a partner work to ON VIEW: HONG KONG, an installation and performance project by Sue Healey with 10 local dance artists.

Sue’s provocation to the filmmakers:

Portraits can reveal unspoken and powerful ideas about identity – creating deep connections between the observer and the observed. A portrait fundamentally involves the act of seeing and being seen. It requires a deep analysis of a person, revealing layers of ideas about the self, and our relationship to the world we live in. Using the unique landscape and history of Hong Kong, create two short portraits that use movement as the language to portray identity.
