The School of Dance Fall Performances will be presented at the Academy Lyric Theatre on Dec 8 and 9, 2023. The Academy’s School of Dance, in collaboration with the School of Theatre and Entertainment Arts, will offer the audience an extravaganza that combines ballet, Chinese dance, and contemporary dance. One of the performances, Stream of Dust, is the collaborative project of the Academy with the City Contemporary Dance Company by by the Academy Honorary Fellow, well-regarded choreographer Sang Jijia (2023 Academy Honorary Fellow) and the excerpt performance will be restaged in The School of Dance Fall Performances.
Synthetic is choreographed by the School's Head of Contemporary Dance, Dam Van Huynh. The audience is led into a deep state of meditation and embarks on a transcendental journey.
Le Jardin Animé is choreographed by the School's Lecturer of Ballet, Eve Chan and inspired by a nineteenth-century ballet masterpiece, Le Corsaire, incorporating its most memorable elements and highlights.
The Land of… is co-choreographed by two of the School’s lecturers of Chinese Dance Yan Xiaoqiang and Yu Pik-yim. Their work explores the moments of hesitation, anxiety, solitude, struggle, and yet waves of overwhelming vitality in the hustle and bustle of the city through Chinese dance.
Coven+ is choreographed and edited by award-winning choreographer and photographer Mickael ‘Marso’ Riviere (also our former Artist-in-Residence), and produced and curated by Dean of Dance, Professor Anna CY Chan. Metaphorically, “Coven” is an imaginary sanctuary which gives us a sense of unity, with our super dance powers finally coming together on stage.
Stream of Dust is the collaborative project of the Academy with the City Contemporary Dance Company. A well-regarded choreographer, Sang Jijia leads a troupe of over thirty students majoring in contemporary dance, ballet and Chinese dance on a journey to explore the theatrical aesthetics, defining the performativity of contemporary dance.
