Hong Kong Dance Alliance Leads Delegation to World Dance Alliance Global Summit in Canada 

 

The Hong Kong Dance Alliance (HKDA), the official Hong Kong organization of the World Dance Alliance (WDA), will lead a delegation to attend the triennial WDA Global Summit held at Memorial University, St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada from 23 to 28 July 2017.

 

This year’s Summit gathers WDA regional organizations from the Americas, Asia Pacific, and Europe to explore resistance and support of formations of power through dance under the theme of Dancing from the Grassroots. The summit includes roundtable discussions, parallel international conferences, masterclasses, performances, a choreographic lab, and digital dance concerts, that will provide delegates from Hong Kong and elsewhere rich creative experiences.

 

The Hong Kong delegation will present two productions during the Summit – Babel 3.5 choreographed by Iris Lau and Never Stop Blooming by Judy Yiu. In addition, Hong Kong delegates Rex Cheng and Judy Yiu will conduct masterclasses in Tai Chi Movement and Contemporary Dance with Gymnastics. While attending the Summit, HKDA representatives will make use of the wide-range of networking opportunities to explore opportunities for collaborations and to promote dance in Hong Kong to international participants.

 

The delegation is financially supported by Hong Kong Arts Development Council. Post-Summit sharing sessions and masterclasses will be conducted by the HKDA in Hong Kong during August and September.

Beijing Modern Dance Summit 2007

2007.7.4 - 11

March 2007, Hong Kong Dance Alliance was invited to participate in the Beijing Modern Dance Summit 2007 and to organize four Hong Kong small-scale dance companies to perform in Beijing in July. After several months of preparation, part of the event evolved into a "Hong Kong Cultural Series". The companies that visited Beijing were Unlock Dancing Plaza, why_me_dance, and Passover Dance Company. The three companies, with a total of 15 persons, including choreographers, dancers, technical coordinator, lighting designer, and stage assistant, visited Beijing from four to six days, in the period from 4 to 11 July 2007. The three companies each presented one performance, gave a dance workshop, and participated in a Meet-the-Artists session. This project is the first time that Hong Kong small-scale dance companies toured to Beijing, and it is very important for Beijing audiences to understand the modern dance development in Hong Kong, and to fully understand Hong Kong dance, arts, and culture.
