Abby Chan was awarded the Hong Kong Dance Award 2003 for her ingenious choreography of Pipe Dream for the City Contemporary Dance Company Three Means Fantasy production. In Pipe Dream, Chan looks at contemporary communication and the role that Internet chat-rooms play in fashioning alternate personas for their users and abusers. On the way, she cheerfully subverts the notion that honesty is not necessarily the best policy and skewers the modern art form of dissembling. Chan has the uncanny ability to poke fun at eminently preposterous facets of contemporary life that have somehow managed to worm their way into respectability, tickling the objects of her ridicule. In the process she lets us laugh at ourselves and enjoy the foibles of our all-too-human nature.
