Project NEXT Wave

CCDC is dedicated to bringing the original and dazzling dance productions to the audience. This year we continue our commitment to emerging choreographers and present Project NEXT Wave to amaze you with the young artists’ creativity.
 
The incredibly talented CCDC dancers Felix Ke and Christy Poinsettia Ma, and HK promising independent artist KT Yau collaborate together to showcase a rich diversity of choreographic ideas, exploring the topics of presence, life and one’s value. Don’t miss this adventure of raw talent and fresh ideas from some of Hong Kong’s most exciting dance creators.
 

With the “dual-track” mode specially designed for the pandemic situation, CCDC continues to bring you wonderful creations by the artists both online and live. We are thrilled to stage Project NEXT Wave at Ko Shan Theatre from 2 to 4 October; simultaneously, the digital version directed by HK dance film director Rita Hui will be streamed worldwide. Join us and experience this new wave in all directions!


ONGOING by Felix KE

When civilization declines and everything fades back to barbarism, how can we keep our faith and carry on? Choreographer Felix Ke collects his observations of society and projects his feelings and imagination onto this work, hoping to open a window through which the audience can reflect on this question.

 

Feast by Christy Poinsettia MA

“You are what you eat.” Food reflects the values and views of a person or society.

Choreographer Christy Ma uses “food” to present her insights into this world to show the absurdity of internal and external discord and self-deception. Humans continue to voraciously grab natural resources, believing that their civilization is superior, but in fact we are no different from cavemen.

 

noBODY by KT YAU

Who will you remember once the curtains close? How much of each performer’s "self" can you see up there on the stage?

The choreographer is conducting a "reduction" experiment. In a cramped environment, the performers make use of their limited resources to create new meanings.
