  Vortex

Choreography: Wayson POON (HK)


In Vortex, dance and sound are intertwined in an abstract world, where the essentials in one’s daily life are felt. Human civilization is constantly redefining what is legitimate or appropriate, when many of its preconceptions are rooted in ignorance. Humans, who have long been accustomed to constraints, have drifted away from their true selves. In this moment, can we contain the whole world in our enfolded existence, and open up the space for an expanding vortex or trajectory?

 

This work is commissioned by 2018 Hong Kong Atrs festival and premiered as part of Hong Kong Jockey Club Contemporary Dance Series.

Ergao Dance Production Group (GZ)


Whenever I recall my childhood, different images of light always emerge first. They unzip my memories and allow me to pick up the pieces of the past.


Company Introduction:

Ergao Dance Production Group was founded by dancer/choreographer ErGao (QiWo HE) in Guangzhou, China in 2007. The group includes dance production and a dance center, with a focus on dance theatre, dance film, community art and dance education.

 

Ergao Dance Production Group’s dance production work prioritizes dance theatre, dance film and community art; at its ‘core’, the body is the site of artistic investigation and the primary medium of work. The work uses diverse strategies to explore Chinese social and cultural identities, sex, gender and other topics. The dance center focuses on the participation and creative processes of non-professional dancers, providing dancers with the opportunity to explore movement in different social and cultural sites, creating a self-determined community and dance space.

Shenzhen is a special city, it is like a mirage floating in the air, glittering.  A group of immigrants arrived here to create their dreams of desire, the city floating, people flowing.  Memories leave its mark here, drawing places where they came from, drawing people whom they have met, it is time which connects them together, rippling on the track of time, flowing within my body.
