Audience Feedback on Director's Edition


Ogawa Kimiyo (International Bandoneon Player)

I was really impressed with this work ...

Release from oppression. freedom.

My heart trembled by their power, the quality of the works.

I think it's really amazing to create and perform this piece in Hong Kong, not just corona, but politically suppressed.

I thought it was art that people express their thoughts in their hearts.

Dr. Yim (Listed Chinese Medicine Practitioner)

舞者的純熟優美動作,團隊堅毅、友愛合作精神都值得讚賞 !音樂和場景的配合亦恰到好處水乳交融,簡單而明晰 !

This was so inventive and moving. I love the use of props and space! I think you all are brave to make Matches.  And it is very clever.


Review on OMTT 2020-21 1st Semester


The 2nd cohort of OMTT has finished its first semester. The mid- term camp originally scheduled from 29 to 31 Jan 2021 was cancelled due to pandemic. The workshops were held in Y-Space studio, Nam Chung PEACE and Theatre-Y. Y-Space is honored to invite guest lecturer Ng Sze Wan to lead improvisation workshop, and Cheung Chi Wai to lead photography workshop. Students were able to utilize their knowledge in first semester during the intensive training. Another important part of training is training  in nature. With the support of PEACE, students make use of the natural resources in Nam Chung to create their unique production. The final part would be a 30 mins improvisation showcase in Theatre-Y with the accompaniment of Nelson Hiu and Wilson Tsang, concluding the first semester programme.

Dance “IN” Possible !? I, II, III returning to theatre this summer

Are you missing Y-Space's "Transdance" performance from Dance “IN” Possible series in 2019? In the coming June, you will have the chance to trance the beginning of the series! Dance “In” Possible I, II and III is reviving in theatre after 20 years since their premiere!

With minimal crew and resources, the work pushed the limits of the theatre space, and so stretched the limits of creativity, to find what is “in” the possible from the impossible. Dance “In” Possible!? I explored the organic combination of theatre and dance; Dance “In” Possible!? II - Dark Corner goes beyond the visual presentation in dance performance; Dance “IN” Possible III – This is a Dance Performance!? requires imagination from audiences to complete the work.

Let's flashback on Dance “IN” Possible series for now!

Hong Kong Dance Company – Grand Original Dance Poem “Shan Shui: An Ode to Nature”

A Waltz of Nature's Timeless Charm

Shanshui (landscape) paintings are an important vehicle for art and philosophy in traditional Chinese culture. Through depicting the external environment, artists give expression to the internal human world, revealing the relationship between man and nature.

In this work, Hong Kong Dance Company draws on the image of nature under the brush, painting an inner world beyond the confines of time or space through dance. The dancers' bodies become the brush's dots, dashes and vigorous strokes; they are the artist's eye for rhyme, rhythm and internal beauty.

Sense the power of nature through the body, take in worldly beauty and meditate on the origins of life. Pass through mountains and over waters, and with a full heart, let the limits of the self and the physical world dissolve.

21 — 22.5.2021 (Fri — Sat) 7:45pm
