An Outdoor Multimedia Dance Gala

Delve into the theme of lust and desire, Pun Siu-fai, acclaimed guru of site-specific dance in Hong Kong and Daniel Yeung, veteran dance-maker, create a multi-site experimental performance fusing dance, multimedia and technology. Set in the West Kowloon district at the newly renovated Yau Ma Tei Theatre and its adjacent areas, Wings of Desire is a series of ‘dance happenings’ by inter-disciplinary artists that promise to provoke the senses.
