Since 1998, Y-Space created a platform named as “Improvisation Land” for artists of different media to meet and have an improvisational jamming from time to time. In gathering artists around the world, and across the areas of dance, installation art, music, lighting design and visual art, artists would interact spontaneously, beyond the usual practice of choreographed performance. Being unpredictable could be risky, but could also be a surprise. ^ with Post-Performance talk[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="22px"][button icon="" target="_blank" hover_type="default" text="HK x KR Dance Junctions: Improvisation Land 62 - House Programme" link="http://www.y-space.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/0923_final_v2.pdf"][vc_empty_space height="22px"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern" css_animation=""][vc_column][vc_column_text]HK x KR Dance Junctions: Solo Dance 24 / 9 / 2016 8pm^, 25 / 9 / 2016 3pm ^ with Post-Performance talk $160, *$80 (For Ticketing & Discounts, please refer to info below) Three unique contemporary solo dances from Korea & Hong Kong, bring it on!
