A cast made up of dance artists from CCDC will perform the work’s Hong Kong premiere. Pa | Ethos was first commissioned by multiple international arts festivals and had its world premiere at Fabbrica Europa per le arti contemporanee in Italy, by Spellbound Contemporary Ballet in 2015. The work later toured to Guangdong Dance Festival in China and Oriente Occidente Dance Festival and Prospettiva Danza in Italy.   Moving Body, Expressive Soul Pa | Ethos is a composition of two words, Pathos and Ethos, borrowed from Aristotle’s Art of Rhetoric. Sang uses them to signify two approaches to the subject discussed. Ethos underlines precision, Pathos evokes passion and feeling. The work is based on Italian plastic art of the classical era and is divided into two parts. The first looks at the rules of social life, where interpersonal relations are rigidly distributed. Each movement in space is well measured and carefully executed. In the second, emotions are translated into the physicality of the dancers; taking stage action to its most extreme, they achieve complete transparency of body through which the soul is revealed in its entirety. CCDC Resident Choreographer Sang Jijia, who comes from Tibet, is a global award-winning artist. He studied under William Forsythe in Germany and stayed on at Ballet Frankfurt and the Forsythe Company as assistant choreographer and dancer. He is celebrated for his extremely physical and emotional movement language. The music was composed by the talented Dickson Dee (Li Chin Sung). As an experienced music producer and sound artist, his style ranges from avant-garde and experimental to music concrete, electronic, new classical, industrial noise,
