Jumping Frame International Dance Film Festival Dance Goes On Screening & Sharing

Speaker: anothermountainman (Stanley WONG)


Camp_21_Jumping Frame 跳格.jpg


Program Description

Dance Goes On is a documentary directed by artist anothermountainman(Stanley Wong), featuring three renowned Hong Kong-based choreographers - Yuri NG, MUI Cheuk Yin and XING Liang.  The film brings out the choreographer’s thoughts and feelings on dance, art, their living space as well as the people and things around them through creative, improvised exchanges.

 

Responding to anothermountainman's theme Dance Goes On, the choreographers improvise dance and dialogues, expressing and

deconstructing " human, objects and space".

 

Born in Hong Kong, Yuri Ng was a dancer at the Canada National Ballet and began choreography after his return to Hong Kong.  In the film, he invited three special friends and family to dance with him, reconnecting three different relationships in the process.  MUI Cheuk Yin was born in Guangzhou and grew up in Hong Kong.  She dances at a location specified by anothermountainman - corners of our rapidly changing city to express and capture the emotion of Hong Kong in this moment.  XING Liang was born in Beijing and developed his career in Hong Kong.  He explores the relationship of "seeing and being seen” between performers and audiences.  Without any limitations he dances and

thinks about how our minds are affected by the reality as well as reflects on how to see the world from another's perspective.

 

The backgrounds and creative directions of three choreographers differ from anothermountainman, but together, the four of them share a common passion and love for Hong Kong as they face the second half of their lives, hoping the city will continue to be open and inclusive, to move on, to let the dance goes on.

Program Description

This performance is inspired by The Great Wave off Kanagawa, from an old person’s reminiscence, zooming in on the disruption unleashed on people by the “great waves” of life.

The Great Wave revolves around three elements: energy, direction and obstruction.  When a great energy meets an obstruction, a wave is formed; the bigger the obstruction, the scarier the wave.

The Great Wave moves into this complexity, inviting the spectators to experience and reflect on the great wave they are facing.

Evening Program #4

Date/ Time: 2018.07.23-24   19:00


More than Lights Choreographer Workshop

Speaker: Eva YAN


Pix-Eva Yan-Lighting Designer.jpg



Program Description

Stage lighting can be as basic as functional illumination or it can be a form of artistic expression, adding dimensions to the choreography. Understanding some fundamental language, properties and possibilities of stage lighting will help a choreographer to communicate effectively with the lighting designer. Further understanding the use of stage lights as an expressive tool may widen the imagination of a choreographer in the creation process. This workshop focuses on experimentation and interaction and is made up of two parts:

 

Part 1 (2018.07.23)

A sharing after watching the performance of two dance works <Dust> and <Fo(u)r Women> and using these as case studies to explore what light can do on stage and to discover what lighting can do beyond making dancers visible.

At the end of the sharing, participants will be divided into groups in preparation for the experiment and interactive parts on Day 2 of the workshop.

 

Part 2(2018.07.24)

This part of the workshop will focus on experiencing the space with/without lights. Participants will be introduced to basic lighting composition for dance and to experience how theatre lighting helps to enhance dancer contour on stage. Participants will have chance to experiment on light and darkness and to explore collaboration between dance and light.
