As If To Nothing


Pass through the ashes of time, recreate the memories between you and me


2010 Hong Kong Dance Awards

- Outstanding Dance Production

- Outstanding Achievement in Choreography


“The choreography is supremely kinetic, with endlessly flowing movement that requires the dancers to contort every part of their bodies.” – South China Morning Post, Hong Kong

“A cutting-edge work.” – Global Times, Beijing


Enter the maze of déjà vu, trapped by our own memories. In every delicate moment, memories seem so close and yet so far. It is slowly swallowed by time. Struggling between remembering and forgetting scattered names, distorted faces, floating time, transforming scenes and familiar plots. What is left inside is emptiness. In this misplaced world, what is real? What is fake?

As If To Nothing is an adrenaline-packed and interactive multimedia work created by the internationally renowned choreographer Sang Jijia, featuring electronic music by Dickson Dee and video design by Adrian Yeung. This tour-de-force returns for another breathtaking journey led by CCDC dancers and their extremely physical and emotional performance.


About Sang Jijia

Acclaimed as "the most perfect dancer", Sang Jijia was selected by the influential American choreographer William Forsythe to work with him at the Frankfurt Ballet for four years. At 23, Sang won the top prize in the men's section of the 1996 Paris International Modern Dance Competition. He was hailed by the Guangdong province as “Star of the Century” in 1997. At 27, he joined the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative and studied choreography in Germany. Sang’s choreography combines extremely intense physical movement and unique rhythm to create psychological tension and anisotropy. As an internationally renowned choreographer, Sang has choreographed and performed for numerous well-known dance companies in Europe and Asia at their invitation.
