Dance From Screen and Beyond

Sharing international trends in screendance, engage in debate upon the form, content, practices and presentation

Co-presented by West Kowloon Cultural District and City Contemporary Dance Company, the upcoming New Works Forum: Screendance provides the opportunity for artistic exchange, with the aim of nurturing new creations in the art of screendance. 

In this public forum, award-winning directors and choreographers Noémie Lafrance (New York/Canada), Sue Healey (Australia), Yuri Ng (Hong Kong) and Maurice Lai (Hong Kong) together with the 20 workshop participants will engage in a discussion of the existing model of making screendance, upon the form, and its content, practice and presentation. Trailers of the short choreographed films produced in the 2-weeks workshop by participants will be screened to illustrate how creative concepts are contextualized and put in practice.
