City Contemporary Dance Company Takes over West Kowloon Freespace
Why We Recommend it
As part of City Contemporary Dance Festival 2019, two thought-provoking dance productions and one virtual reality dance film dedicated to exploring body movements and established dance figures are staged.
For the first event in the collaboration, Freespace partners with City Contemporary Dance Company (CCDC) to present a range of the company’s projects, including two major dance productions. Re-Mark, the opening performance, is a new work on body, space of the city and memory by CCDC Resident Choreographer Sang Jijia. Almost 55, created by a team of artists from Hong Kong and Taiwan, is a solo for CCDC Resident Artist Qiao Yang that celebrates her 40-year career.
The week-long event also includes experimental presentations of a futuristic virtual reality dance film on memory and emotion, VR Dance Video – Afterimage for Tomorrow by Taiwanese film director Singing Chen and choreographer Chou Shu-yi, indoor and outdoor performances for audiences of all ages, and open studio presentation sessions for local and international dance artists and professionals in the global industry.
