9 June 2020 – Hong Kong Dance Alliance (HKDA) is pleased to announce the arrangements for the 22nd Hong Kong Dance Awards.
22nd Hong Kong Dance Awards Presentation Ceremony
In view of the continuing uncertainty and risk of infection caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the 22nd Hong Kong Dance Awards Presentation Ceremony will be changed from a public event to a closed-door, invitation-only event with live-streaming on social media platforms for free viewing. To avoid a large gathering, only the shortlisted nominees and other related parties will be invited to attend in person.
This exciting new way of conducting the ceremony reflects the ‘new normal’ of life during the pandemic and the new journey on which the dance community, like the rest of the world, is embarking, and will make the event accessible to a much wider audience.
Alliance Chairperson Shirley Loong says: “This online Awards ceremony will show how we can embrace the future. It will enable us to honour outstanding achievements in Hong Kong dance and bring the dance community together in celebration after the tough times we’ve been through without any risk.”
Dominic Wong (Acting Artistic Director, City Contemporary Dance Company), who is Artistic Director for the event, adds: “We’re keeping the ceremony simple while not forgetting how art can heal tired hearts and bring us hope.”
In addition to the presentations, the event will feature a specially-choreographed performance by four local dance artists with live music from Patrick Ng.
We look forward to having you join us via your screens on 18 July.
Date: 18 July 2020 (Sat)
Venue: Auditorium, Kwai Tsing Theatre (By invitation only)
Time: 8pm (Live streaming)
Live-streaming channels: HKDA Facebook Page & HKDA YouTube Channel
