The performances included parades, site specific dance, happenings, and the main stage event, The Disappearing Buffalo. Buffaloes were central to agrarian life in Hong Kong. With the decline of farming and the abandoning of fields, these fascinating animals are becoming homeless. The story revolved around a villager who had emigrated many years before, and had returned to visit during the Tai Ping Ching Chiu Festival. He found the buffalo who used to be his childhood friend, but the old days of working in the fields together and stargazing at night had disappeared with the expansion of the city. As he bade sorrowful farewell to the buffalo, he met up with an old love, and together they embarked on the work of cultural preservation.   Production Team Artistic Director, Choreographer & Conceiver: Victor Choi-wo Ma Producer & Choreographer: Mandy Ming-yin Yim Director: Indy Lee Playwright: Rensen Chan Actors: Rico Woo & Kim Da Gun Dancers: Lui Heung Man, Ivanho Lam, Alan Wong, Rebecca Wong, Judy Yiu & Christine Kehr Live Musician: Man Ka Wai Sound Designer: Him Law & Chan Fuk Hing Set Designer: Lau Ming Hang Costume Designer: Kenneth Leung Community Dance Ambassadors: Yuki Ng, Maria Poon, Lisa Poon, Turbo Ma, Candy Chu, Zeo Ng, Carmen Lai, Tori Ng, Yukari Ip, Abi Lau, Sammie Ho, Koala Yip, Amy Chu, Patsy Fu, Lam Sing Chu, Angela Ko, Irene Tang, Elfin Cheung, Cheryl Wong, Erica Ngai, Alice Choo, Karen Chow, Wilson Fung & Franky Yau[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/1"][vc_separator type="normal" position="center" thickness="50" width_in_percentages="" up="20" down="20"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/1"][vc_column_text]Date (Y/M/D) & Venue of Performance 2010/12/25: Kat Hing Wai, Kam Tin, Hong Kong 2010/12/27: Tang Chung Ling Ancestral Hall, Lung Yeuk Tau, Fanling, Hong Kong 2011/01/02: Liu Man Shek Tong Ancestral Hall, Sheung Shui Heung, Hong Kong 2011/01/16: Tang Ancestral Hall, Ping Shan, Yuen Long, Hong Kong 2011/01/23: Wang Toi Shan Playground, Pat Heung, Yuen Long, Hong Kong[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]...

[vc_row][vc_column width="1/1"][vc_column_text]The makeshift stage is a familiar Hong Kong tradition: during festivals, Cantonese opera is performed alongside rituals and celebrations. These bamboo scaffoldings were transformed through this project into a site for the meeting of tradition and modern art. Through a series of site-specific theatre and dance performances, happenings, workshops, parades and games for the whole family, Y-Space brought together traditional and modern culture to share with the public. The multimedia performance on the main stage, The Key to Happiness, was narrated by Ah Chan. He wanted to bring joy to the audience through the show. But interruptions kept coming: an alien (Ah Man) arrived from Planet Joy to learn about how humans live, and to bring the key to happiness back to his people; then a group of masked robbers burst into the scene … After so much had happened, Ah Chan shared his realization that one’s attitude towards other people, and towards all that may happen in one’s life, was the key to happiness. The project was conducted on four makeshift stages across Hong Kong.   Production Team Director, Choreographer & Scriptwriter: Victor Choi-wo Ma Producer & Choreographer: Mandy Ming-yin Yim Choreographer: Pewan Chow Script Writer: Rensen Chan Light Designer: Anna Lee (2009) Video Artist: Adrian Yeung (2009) Set & Costume Designer: Tsang Man Tung Graphic Designer: Vivian Leung Music Director: Ng King Pan Musicians: Wu Chun Hei, Mo Chun Pang & Leung Yan Chiu Actor (MC): Rensen Chan (2008) & Wong Jan Fai (2009) Actors (Alien): Man Lee Dancers: Cheung Hoi Yan (2008), Kaco Kam (2008), Fok Ka Wing, Yau Ka Kit, Rebecca Wong, Max Lee, Icey Lam, Chan Ka Ching (2009), Song Nan (2009) & Liu Heung Man (2009)[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/1"][vc_separator type="normal" position="center" thickness="50" width_in_percentages="" up="20" down="20"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/1"][vc_column_text]Date (Y/M/D) & Venue of Performance 2008/04/26,27 2007/08: The Makeshift Theatre Project I: Tradition vs Modernity 2007/08 Community Cultural Ambassador Scheme Football Field, Fung Shue Wo Road, Tsing Yi, Hong Kong 2008/05/4: Cha Kwo Ling Road (Tin Hau Temple), Hong Kong 2008/05/11: Wong Nai Chung Crescent Garden, Wong Nai Chung Road, Happy Valley, Hong Kong 2008/05/27: Sai Kung Po Tung Road (in front of Tin Hau Temple), Hong Kong 2009/04/20-21: School Culture Day Scheme 2009 Auditorium, Tuen Mun Town Hall, Hong Kong 2009/04/27-28: Auditorium, Tsuen Wan Town Hall, Hong Kong[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]...

[vc_row][vc_column width="1/1"][vc_column_text]The Story of Island and Boat – Hong Kong was conceived in 2003, when SARS and the economic downturn weighed on people’s minds. This dance theatre piece recalled the history of Hong Kong, evoking the collective memories of different generations. The narrated stories and danced images revealed the Hong Kong spirit of perseverance and resilience. Hong Kong began as a fishing harbour whose people lived in close proximity to the sea. The many islands were connected by boats, which carried the people of Hong Kong as they strove for a better life. And so they were witnesses to the people’s sweat and tears as Hong Kong developed into a bustling metropolis and evolved a distinct culture. They were vessels contatining moving stories of struggles against the forces of nature, and of striving for their ideals. The Story of Island and Boat – Hong Kong combined East and West, old and new on one stage. Modern dance met powerful Chinese percussions and “syut syu” storytelling, the southern Chinese folk performance tradition. The character of Goddess Tin Hau weaved the many theatrical elements together, to bring out the stories of Hong Kong. The work was first presented in 2004 by Y-Space as an LCSD Community Cultural Ambassador and toured to six islands. After the 2008 financial tsunami, Y-Space revived the work in 2009 on traditional bamboo-scaffolding theatres in Tuen Mun and Sai Kung, as part its Makeshift Theatre Project II – Dance Collage Carnival 2009. Later in 2009 and 2011 it was repackaged for theatre stages in Tsuen Wan and Tuen Mun town halls, where secondary school students could broaden their experience in the arts through the LCSD’s School Culture Day Scheme. The 2009 & 2011 version included multimedia projections and updated historical information.   Production Team Artistic Director, Director & Choreographer: Victor Choi-wo Ma Producer, Choreographer & Dancer: Mandy Ming-yin Yim (Tin Hau) Playwright & Performer: Rensen Chan Man Kong (narrator) Set, Props & Costume Designer:  Tsang Man Tung (2004) & Wong Yuen Ming (2009) Composer, Musical Director & Musician: Ng King Pan Band Leader: Man Ka Wai Musicians: Ah Tung (2005), Law Hang Leung (2005), Wu Chun Hei (2005/2009), Mo Chun Pang (2005/2009), Locky Law (2009), Leung Yan Chiu (2009/2011) & Lee Pok Yin (2011) Lighting Designer: Anson Chan (2009), Anna Lee (2009) & PC Sei (2011) Video Designer: Woo Ling Ling PowerPoint Designer: Song Nan & Alvin Chan (2011)   Reviews and Feedback A light that let us view not just the here and now but into the soul of the island. The Story of Island and Boat – Hong Kong created a spiritual current that connected us with the island, its history, its reality, and its possibility. It brought us together to value the beauty of the place and each other.

Against the perception of modern dance being obscure and remote, Y-Space aimed to broaden participation in dance and to cultivate more spaces as performing stages. Amidst blossoming Spring flowers and vibrant percussion music, Dance & Drum – Have Fun under the Sun invited members of the public to experience the pleasure of dance and rhythm, and to witness developments in the New Territories. Events included: A Samba parade – inviting the public to join in the dance; A dance exhibition – with maps in hand, viewers make their own ways to different areas in the park and watch site-specific pieces; Main stage performance – open-air modern dance performance, with an MC introducing the project and an open dance workshop for the public.   Production Team Director & Coordinator: Hema Conceivers, Choreographers, Performance & Producer: Victor Choi-wo Ma & Mandy Ming-yin Yim Performers: Nonie Yung, Mon Ning, Davy Leung, Mak Kit Ping, Jeff Ong, Maggie Lam, Simon Peter Ho, Suzky Lo, Ellen Chan, Esther Lam, Jodi Chan, Bonnie Fung & Ivan Yuen Percussionists (Island Sun Drum): Raymond Leung, Jamie Chung, Choi Suk Fan, Fung Man Ki, Anita Chung, Helen Chu, Andy Tam & Elton Li Costume Designer: Mak Kit Ping Set Designer: Hay Young[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/1"][vc_separator type="normal" position="center" thickness="50" width_in_percentages="" up="20" down="20"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/1"][vc_column_text]Date (Y/M/D) & Venue of Performance 1999/03/07,14,21,27,28, 1999/04/02,3,4,5,6,11,18,25, 1999/05/01: 15 parks in New Territories, Hong Kong Sheung Shui North District Park Tuen Mun Park Tuen Mun Butterfly Beach Park Tin Shui Wai Park Yuen Long Park Tsuen Wan Jockey Club Tak Wah Park Tsing Yi Park Tsuen Wan Shing Mum Valley Park Central Kwai Chung Park Tsuen Wan Park Ma On Shan Park Tai Po Waterfront Park Tseung Kwan O Po Tsui Park Sha Tin Park Ma On Shan On Luk Street Park[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]...
