Project DARE Conversation Series 2012

2012.1.16 - 6.1

Project DARE falls under the umbrella dancers' transition initiative of the Hong Kong Dance Alliance, with the aim of providing induction to dance professionals interested in finding more about career possibilities beyond stage performance.

 

Talk 1: Dance Education -- "From dance 'teacher' to dance 'educator' - basic concepts of Dance Pedagogy/ Motif Teaching/ Creative Movements"

Being the first talk of the series, it was held on 16 Jan 2012. It was our pleasure to have Miss Yunyu Wang as our speaker. Miss Wang is a certified Labanotation teacher, reconstructor and Laban Movement Analyst. She has a MFA from the University of Illinois and is a founding dancer of Cloud Gate Theatre, Taiwan. Miss Wang is now the President of World Dance Alliance Asia Pacific.

 

About 50 participants joined the 2-hour talk, during which Miss Wang gave a high level introduction to Laban Movement Analysis. She then placed the concept of "dance education" in front of this theoretical backdrop to explain the difference between teaching "movement" and teaching "dance." Dance students should be encouraged to participate in creating movement and to understand their bodies, the knowledge in Dance Science and the different techniques in Somatics could help dance tutors in planning lesson plans more systematically.

 

Talk 2: Marketing -Basic concepts of Marketing and Dance Programme Publicity

The discipline of marketing applies not only to commercial sector, but also to dance, especially when artists have to deal with the reality of ticket sales. If the number of tickets sold is a reflection of the marketing effort devoted to the programme, what skills are required to take artists to their goals?

 

Katy Cheng, Marketing Director of Hong Kong Arts Festival Ltd., spent two hours in the evening of 12 March 2012 with over 20 practicing artists and arts administrators to reveal her experience and "tips" in dance marketing. While touching on basic marketing principles of the 4Ps, positioning, and advertising skills, Katy focused her sharing on case studies that provide real-life examples to close the perception gap of the relationship between "arts" and "sales." She also advised participants that as artists, while they should be dedicated to creating works, they should also be alert to what's happening around them so that their works can more readily relate to audiences, and hence a larger ticker sales potential.

 

Talk 3: Touring - how to create opportunity and how to nurture future potential

The 3rd talk of Conversation Series explores how emerging artists could get the attention from overseas program buyers and nurture for themselves overseas performance experience. The area of touring is getting more attention partly because of the stagnant audience growth in Hong Kong, and because of globalization trend making the exchange of cultural activities more and more popular.

 

Our speaker was Elaine Yeung, Chief Manager (Audience Building, Festivals & Entertainment), Leisure and Cultural Services Department, who previously spent a long period of time overseeing cultural exchange events of the LCSD. The talk was intended to be a small-group, cosy discussion on 1st June 2012. Elaine kindly shared her experience with the participants and welcoming took their questions and comments. One important piece of advice by Elaine to young artists was that they should strive for any kind of performing opportunities, regardless of scale, venue or target audiences, because this is the most direct way of creating exposure and remembrance. Also artists should aggressively reach out to producers to introduce themselves, and must maintain a positive attitude when failure calls as reality is harsh and competition keen. An artist's road to success is long and winding, but persistence wins.

Art Administration Talk for Dance Practitioners

2011.10.13

A high-quality dance production is the combined effort of artistry and execution excellence. In a modern society where the ability to effectively multi-task is emphasized, it is important for dancers to also learn about arts management and administration. In view of this trend, Hong Kong Dance Alliance and Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association co-presented an art administration talk on 13 Oct 2011 and invited two veteran dance administrators, Ms Helen Ng and Ms Clementine Chan, Managing Director of City Contemporary Dance Company, to introduce to the participants the various aspects of dance / arts administration. Talk contents included:

 

  • Arts Administrators: who they are, and the skills required
  • Administrators as curators: how to bring out the best from the artists and from the programme
  • Be Organized: Project management
  • About $ : Budgeting and Financial Management
  • About People: Managing the team and other HR/ contractual issue
  • Post-performance issues - looking for further opportunities to perform re-run programme locally or abroad

Legend Lin Body Training Workshop for Professionals (2011)

2011.8.10
The much acclaimed and respected Legend Lin Dance Theatre from Taiwan has only created 3 productions in the 16 years since it was established. Such dedication and patience has won its recognition all over Europe and LIN Li-chen, Artistic Director, has been nominated as one of the 8 most influential contemporary choreographers by ARTE, Europe's leading art TV channel. The aesthetics of Legend Lin is inseparable from its body training system, which emphasizes power generated from concentration, serenity, flexibility. Focused spine training aims to make the dancers' spine as flexible as a whip. The more relaxed the spine is, the more powerful the energy transmitted.
 
LCSD commissioned Hong Kong Dance Alliance to conduct a workshop targeting professional dancers in August 2011 when Legend Lin Dance Theatre visited Hong Kong for activities related to Asian Cultural Festival 2011. Professionals will not only have the opportunity to experience this exclusive training system themselves, but also understand LIN Li-chen's aesthetics through a conversation session led by Aaron Wan.
