Dance Season 2024-25

As the leaves turn golden, let’s ignite ardency with a 45°C flame and heat up a feast celebrating the body, dance and harvest.

What are the concepts behind ‘An Ardent °Fall’? It is the latitude and longitude of winter, spring, summer going to autumn. It is an immeasurable and measureless formula, reaping and amassing what has been sown. It is both yields and experiences, at once harvesting and sharing. It is not fervent acclaims, but full blooms; not reaping, but sowing; not the past, but the future. It is embracing, celebration, and living in the present.

Marking the 45th anniversary of City Contemporary Dance Company (CCDC), the Dance Season 2024/25 is themed on autumn, while refining dance into numbers. It is maths, it is romance, it is dance. 45-year-old Justyne Li has conceived the opening performance for CCDC’s 45th dance season to honour happiness 45² times; (5-12)∞ little dancers slide into a wonderland; two cross-generational choreographers Helen Lai and Chou Shu-yi take inspiration from Bei Dao’s poem February, exploring particular movements and shadows in twofold; Qiao Yang, following her solo dance at the age of 55, will perform a new work by Sang Jijia tailor-made for her at the age of 60. Collaborating with two guest dancers, Luo Fan and Kelvin Mak, the work is transformed into three different ‘sound frequencies’ to reverberate the snowing sound at (55+3)Hz.

An Ardent °Fall – the accumulation is complicated and the assessment is even more so. Why not make it into a revelry? Dissolve the barriers, infuse imagination, and remove the constraints. This is an unending banquet. As the leaves turn golden, our expression keeps flowing.

Advance booking is available at CCDC website and art-mate during 21.3-9.5.2024.
