The Buying Game 2.0

“… an ambitious work that includes some striking sequences and shows Pong successfully introducing new ideas into her choreography.”    - South China Morning Post, Hong Kong



Noel Pong is one of today’s most promising choreographers. Winner of the 2012 Hong Kong Dance Award "Outstanding Choreography", she was inspired by shopping encounter and created The Buying Game. Wandering between immersive shopping labyrinths in concrete jungles and virtual online shopping platforms, one is overwhelmed by a barrage of desirable things made more desirable by exquisite imagery. How do emotions flow in this world: one way, two ways, or crisscrossing?

The Buying Game converses with everyday life and is realised by a cast of superb dancers, the premiere performances in 2013 were well-received and drew enthusiastic responses. This July, the CCDC puts Pong’s renewed reflections onto a larger stage, once again analysing our shopping experience with humour and insight.
