Hong Kong Dance Alliance brought to the dance community and dance enthusiasts the Dance X Men to promote artistic exchange in dance.
Emerging Choreographers Series: Dance X Men aims to encourage collaboration between dance artists, dance groups and other art forms in pursuit of creative synergies. Proposals from dance artists and dance groups were subjected to a meticulous selection process and four collaborative combinations were eventually chosen to create and present a dance piece of less than 20 minutes each.
Daniel YEUNG, Artistic Director of the project, and mentors MUI Cheuk Yin and Yuri NG offered invaluable advice and guidance to these emerging choreographers over the course of their creative process. This project to nurture the development of a new generation of choreographers is presented by Hong Kong Dance Alliance, partnered with The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts and commissioned by Hong Kong Arts Development Council.
