The classic Greek myth of Orpheus journeying to the Underworld to bring back his beloved Eurydice gets a new twist in this provocative new dance cabaret online. This fresh new collaboration brings together seven choreographers associated with Hong Kong Ballet and a team of The University of Hong Kong creative writers led by Chair of Creative Writing & Theatre Page Richards, a professor and director of the HKU Guild.
The Orpheus Cabaret is co-presented by Freespace as part of Hong Kong Ballet in Residence 2021: turn(it)out festival.
