ADD TO CART

Thrilled to be entering our 6th year, The Series is growing with our choreographic stars and trying out new formats. This edition features familiar elements while striding into uncharted territories. With an international collaboration, cross-discipline commissions and a mixed bill showcasing emerging talents, it brings together trained dancers with non-dancers to explore the art of creativity and movement.

INTRODUCTION



Will you still love me tomorrow? Hong Kong Remix

Choreographers:
Alessandro Sciarroni in collaboration with Mao Wei

A high energy dance off

The first international collaboration for the HKJC Contemporary Dance Series, this special commission is built on the Artist-in-Residence project of Italian choreographer Alessandro Sciarroni with Hong Kong choreographer Mao Wei, who took part in the HKAF in 2016.

Continuing their partnership and building on Sciarroni’s acclaimed FOLK-S, they further explore the counterpoint in Eastern and Western dance and folk traditions. This full-length new work features professional dancers from Hong Kong and will also include selected local students. It is developed over a series of workshops and rehearsals in Hong Kong.




Cecilia’s Rhapsody

Choreographers
Blue Ka-wing ─ The Invisible S
Ata Wong ─ Très léger
Rebecca Wong Pik-kei ─ Nook

Explosive encounters of literature and dance

Cecilia is the short story that launched the writing career of Dung Kai-cheung. Hailed as Hong Kong’s own Italo Calvino, Dung’s lyrical, dreamlike urban tales are landmarks of our city’s literary landscape. His prose – fluid, rhythmic, evocative – invites readers to shift effortlessly between characters and perspectives.

In this triple-bill programme, three local choreographers – Rebecca Wong Pik-kei, Ata Wong and Blue Ka-wing – are invited to create three duets in response to this seminal piece of Hong Kong literature. These cross-disciplinary works challenge and reflect on dance as a wordless form of expression that is integral to Hong Kong’s creativity.




Dance Off

Choreographers
Hugh Cho, Joseph Lee, Sudhee Liao, Jennifer Mok, Ming Pak, Terry Tsang, Sarah Xiao

Seven choreographers, seven faces of dance

Continuing from the previous two editions, the HKJC Contemporary Dance Series is expanding Dance Off to five performances and a series of open rehearsals this year. The showcase gives seven emerging choreographers free rein to experiment and create in any style or dance language, culminating in works for any number of performers between 10 and 15 minutes long. Whether to explore the relationship between kungfu and dance; the transience of life; the interaction of sound and movement or to express ideas about humanity, the future stars of Hong Kong dance demonstrate their myriad creativity with full support from the HKAF in realising their works on stage.
