Named “It’s Summer!”, the season will showcase the vitality of the season through four original contemporary dance performances and two dance festivals, enabling viewers to infuse the rhythm and dynamic of performing arts in everyday life and explore the diverse possibilities of dance. Advance booking of the Season is now available at URBTIX till 15th May 2023 with discounts of up to 40%. Let’s warm up––let your body slowly transit and recover, as a starting point of this glorious journey to midsummer. As CCDC Artistic Director Yuri Ng envisions it, he, artists, the company, and even Hong Kong itself are each travelling on their own journeys, experiencing their own ups and downs. Perhaps, we all need an opportunity to warm up and reset our body and mind, so that we can better embrace every twist, turn and cycle along the way, each choice made on our adventures and journeys home, and even unknown future events and encounters. “It’s Summer!” is a vacation for the body, where the scenery remains to be discovered and experienced. The itinerary of “It’s Summer!” starts in May with its first stop: a double-bill performance of Travel of Soul Time AFTER Time & Echo in the Mirror, respectively choreographed by former CCDC dancer Terry Tsang and Resident Artist Noel Pong. “Travel” represents independent artist Terry Tsang’s experiences in his journeys after departing from the company.
