22nd Hong Kong Dance Awards Postponed
due to COVID-19 Pandemic
24 March 2020 —— Hong Kong Dance Alliance (the Alliance) announces the postponement of the 22nd Hong Kong Dance Awards.
The 22nd Hong Kong Dance Awards Presentation & Gala Performance was originally scheduled to take place on 17 April 2020 at Kwai Tsing Theatre Auditorium. However, due to the measures in place to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been postponed as follows:
Date: 18 July 2020 (Sat)
Venue: Auditorium, Kwai Tsing Theatre
In line with the postponement of the Awards presentation, the shortlisted nominations for outstanding achievement in 2019 will be announced on 8 May 2020. As usual, the Awards results will be announced at the Presentation and Gala Performance and will be kept secret until then.
The Artistic Director for this year’s Gala, Dominic Wong (Acting Artistic Director, City Contemporary Dance Company), is adopting an exciting new approach, showcasing Hong Kong’s rich diversity of dance and celebrating inclusivity with a special performance featuring dance schools, amateur dance groups and dancers with disabilities alongside professional dance artists.
The Chairperson of the Alliance, Shirley Loong, says: “While we are naturally disappointed to have to postpone the Awards presentation, we believe that holding the Gala in July will be the perfect occasion for the local dance community to come together after the dark days of the Covid-19 epidemic, celebrate our unity in the face of hardship and pay tribute to the outstanding achievements of our peers.”
We look forward to welcoming the public and members of the dance community to join us for this joyous event and experience the best of Hong Kong dance.
