This dance theatre piece for families is led by CCDC Artistic Director Yuri Ng and marks the first collaboration of the company with Chun Tian Hua Hua. It is the perfect choice this summer for families to experience an exciting and adventurous dance journey filled with childlike wonder. As one of the programmes of ‘International Arts Carnival 2023’, organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, When a Poo Woos will be performed at the Auditorium of Sha Tin Town Hall from 11 to 13 August 2023. Tickets are now available at URBTIX, while family packages can be purchased exclusively on Klook. The story of The Excreman, a picture book by Chun Tian Hua Hua, was originally created by renowned artists Brian Tse and Alice Mak. It follows Excreman who is deemed worthless, as he chases after his dream seeking personal value and meaning. After being featured on Yellow Bus, a children’s publication, the story became widely known among adults and children, and was even adapted into musical works and showcased in exhibitions. In this unprecedented rendition of a popular character through contemporary dance, Choreographer and Director Yuri Ng will be crafting this performance with nearly 40 dance artists from CCDC, members of the CCDC Dance Centre ‘Dance Training and Performance Practice Programme’, as well as primary and secondary school students of ‘CCDC Junior’. By incorporating ingenious stage designs, costume, and dazzling animation projection, daily life and objects familiar to children will be transformed into adorable theatrical scenes. Along with newly arranged classical music and its familiar tunes and rhythms, the young audiences will
