As Christmas approaches, CCDC is collaborating with Cantonese linguist Ben Sir, co-created a brand-new educational dance theatre piece titled Ben Sir's Dancing Academy - from taboo to BENboo. In this joyous and educational dance theatre piece, Ben Sir takes the challenge of dancing, Ben Sir and the performers breathe new life to “vulgar” words and phrases through spoken lyrics and dance. As adults and children show off their Canton prowess while breaking a sweat together, all taboos are thrown out the window. Ben Sir's Dancing Academy - from taboo to BENboo takes place across 5 shows at the Studio Theatre, Hong Kong Cultural Centre from 20 to 21 December 2022. Tickets now available at URBTIX and exclusive family packages now available on Klook. Adult: “Don’t say that word, kid… and that word as well…” Child: “What exactly am I not allowed to say?” Children are often told by adults which words are off-limits and shouldn’t be uttered. But what if they sang them, or danced them out? Breaking Barriers With Family Fun Following the success of its ‘cool’ summer hit Luck-quacka in 2021, CCDC is presenting a fun and educational production this winter that is perfect for families during the festive season. The family-oriented performance is not only suitable for children but will also resonate with grown-ups. CCDC's Artistic Director Yuri Ng said, “This will be a colourful dance theatre piece that captivates young audiences with various quirky body movements, words, and sounds. At the same time, our Cantonese expert Ben Sir will provide commentaries on the dance, making it an engaging experience for the adults as well.” Ben Sir,
