City Contemporary Dance Festival (CCDF), initiated by City Contemporary Dance Company (CCDC) and financially supported by the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, is an iconic contemporary dance event in Hong Kong. It not only presents outstanding domestic and international dance works to local audiences, but also introduces emerging local and Asian dance artists to the industry around the globe.
City Contemporary Dance Festival 2021
CCDF 2021 presented an extraordinary array of programmes under the theme of “Danzcation”. Although social restriction measures have confined us to this city, CCDC sees this as an opportunity to promote contemporary dance by offering a dynamic experience for local audiences. Through the different perspectives of participating artists, the programmes focus on the relationships between self-identity, the city and one’s hometown.

CCDF 2019 focused on the cities we live in. It invited extraordinary dance companies from here and beyond to contemplate and reflect on urban life in dynamic ways and from multiple perspectives. Their creations were staged across Hong Kong at various venues and public spaces, including West Kowloon Cultural District, Kwai Tsing Theatre, and HKICC LEE Shau Kee School of Creativity.
