Performance Venue: Ko Shan Theatre New Wing Auditorium

About the Choreography
Choreographer: Chen Kai
Work length: Around 30 mins 


-- An adventurous attempt to be an equilibrium in a suspended position
It will be a solo contemporary dance work. Restricting within a suspended-position on the footprint, Chen Kai tries to apply linear movement to visualize the bodily limitation of trace-points in Kinesphere, and to free the imagination of extension-points in sphere, which symbolically comes along with a metal round object, to shape a space.


About Classifiable Movement 
Chen Kai has founded the Classifiable Movement to put his ‘Classifiable Movement’ theory into practice and visualize the concept of ‘let the movement speak for itself’. His logic thinking pattern cultivates the rational side of the dance and shapes multi-layers of movement analysis. 
He created his choreographic method of ‘Classifiable Movement’, which has been categorizing movements according to their features, namely linear, turning, twist, flex and rolling, etc. Focusing on merely one feature each time, a series of pieces has been developed - Line, Circle, Line and Aureola, Sweep (overture), Twist, Flex, Circle II, Line II, Sweep, Movement with Fan and so on. 


Audition Details
Time and Date: 8/7 (Sun) 10-1pm
Venue: HKAPA Studio 3
*Invited applicants will have to prepare a Solo of no shorter than 2 mins, based on his interpretation about Linear Movement during the audition.

Application Form: https://goo.gl/mEMKg6 
Deadline: 1/7 (日Sun)
Interested parties please submit the Online Application Form with the following details: 
1) Personal Contact, 2) CV, 3) Full body shot, 4) Solo dance video.

Dancer Requirements:
1. Applicants must be 18 years old or above by the start of the programme.
2. To fit the theme of the work, applicants must have strong professional background of contemporary dance and ballet.
3. Male dancer who has possessed professional contemporary or ballet training.
