Stars wheel, matter transforms, solitude reigns A new full length dance theatre by choreographer Helen Lai

One Hundred Years of Solitude, by the Colombian writer Gabriel García Márquez, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, is set in the fictional town of Macondo, and tells of seven generations of the Buendía family, their lives, loves, fights, joys, and deaths. Many visitors pass through their house, amongst them a gypsy preoccupied with studying ancient wisdom. But despite this parade of characters, the family and the town wrestle with solitude, unaware of the destiny which has been foreseen by the gypsy, and which lies in his writings, waiting to be deciphered.


Soledad (Spanish for solitude), a new dance theatre inspired by the Nobel literature prize winner Gabriel García Márquez's novel One Hundred Years of Solitude, is the first collaboration between local dance guru Helen Lai and the Hong Kong and UK artist Peter Suart. Lai will choreograph and direct; Suart will compose and record the music, design the set, and play a theatrical role. Between them, a world of love, desire, and power will unfold, a world existing within a great and inscrutable solitude.
