Hayes & Franck Boulegue, Co-directeurs, Festival International de Video Danse de Bourgogne, gave two public lectures at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts in Oct 2011.

The lecture subjects were "Screendance" and "100 years of Le Sacre du Printemps". The former focused on the latest development of dance videos around the globe, while the latter examined the timeless themes and motifs of Le Sacre du Printemps, from its earliest history to present-day productions, in styles of dance as varied as ballet, hip-hop or butoh.
