Sport Dance Series I – Matches

“The Game is Fair” They said.

——————————–

In 2020 full of crisis, “Matches” was rescheduled from April to December 2020. Yet the live performance was still impossible due to pandemic, an online live stream was arranged instead. But on the second day of move in, we are notified that government is closing venue on 10 December (Thursday). Under hard work of different parties, the broadcast video was released in 3 days on the original performance day of 12 December. The 2 hrs 30 mins full length online broadcast was well received by audiences. Still we do admit it was not perfect due to tight schedule under uncontrollable factors. In order to let audience have a more comprehensive, deeper experience with “Matches”, a Director’s Edition will be released. The Director’s Edition retains the superb performances of performers with more intense atmosphere and clearer concept. Those who have watched once can recall the impact of “Matches” while those who haven’t can have another chance to experience it. Seize the chance and get your ticket now!

Ticket price: $88

This is a game
The stage will be transformed into a coliseum
Dancers and performers will become vigorous competitors
“The game is fair”, they say.
Rules are written, the game is changing
Who will win?
Who will lose?
At the end
Who decides ?

This is probably the best game ever seen in Hong Kong with the most ideal,
most energetic, most aggressive, most creative, most united, most excellent,
most dressed up, the bravest and the most and most……
They are the”Hong Kong Dream Team” !
