Apart from the series, we are also proudly presenting three different programmes in Black Box Theatre of Kwai Tsing Theatre. Tickets in box office will be available on 21 Sept. Yet, a discount of 15% off is now offered under the early bird package, which is already open for sale until 21 Sept!
Programme 1: “From Wan Chai to Kam Tin”
This is the very first time for Y-Space to upgrade Dancing All Around, the site-specific dance, to a theatre performance. “Dance exhibition” further expands imagination of the performers and audience. It is based on “Discovering Wai Chai stories” and “The Original Kam Tin”; as environment is removed from site-specific dance, there are only memory and records to be left in the dance. Like Wan Chai where the habour once stood and Kam Tin abounded with crops, both became history and memory which can only be reconstructed in our minds.
Programme 2: “Improvisation Land 60”
A refined performance that cannot be predicted and rehearsed, and only after a 4-day intensive research, “Improvisation Land 60” gathers local and overseas excellent dancers, musicians, lighting designer, sound designer, video creators and editors to go beyond the usual practice of choreographed performance which will be full of surprises. We are waiting for you to join and witness how creativity sparkles at the very moment of your presence!
Programme 3: “New Dance Platform 2015”
A stage performance featuring choreographed dance by artists from different regions, who speak new dance language to express their feelings of the time.
“New Dance Platform 2015” (21/11) provides a platform for several artists to perform their aesthetics in dance and movement. Daniel Navarro Lorenzo, along with the <X.N> will participate with their performances. Daniel Navarro Lorenzo will be joining Y-Space’s Artist-in-Residence scheme. <X.N> was formed by Xuan Shi & Niannian Zhou in 2014, who had worked as ensemble for Sasha Waltz & Guests for ten and six years respectively. Moreover, Alexandra Battaglia from Portugal will join this night’s performance as well!
