What's On

DANCE SHOWCASE

The renowned Merce Cunningham Dance Company from the US is gracing our shores for the first time in two decades. They will perform at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre's Grand Theatre tomorrow and on Saturday at 7.30pm.

The company is led by artistic director Cunningham. The 85-year-old is billed as the world's greatest living choreographer.

Fifty years on and still going crazy ... that's quite some feet

For a man who has spent most of his life using elements of surprise to move and shock his audiences, Merce Cunningham seems to be a master of self-control. The 85-year-old is up every day at 7.30am and in bed by 11pm, with teaching, rehearsals, drawing and yoga filling his day - even though arthritis and old age have taken their toll, and he's barely able to dance any more.

Jeers, cheers and a three-step plan to conquer the twirl stage

'The Hong Kong Ballet Company has really grown from being a local company to an international company,' says board chairman Cissy Pao Watari at a recent press conference. It's not the sort of thing a firmly established ballet might feel the need to say, but it suggests that the city's pre-eminent dance group is on the cusp of change in its 25th year.

Spring Dance Concert

Spring Dance Concert 99 Lyric Theatre, APA May 29 If you care about the state of dance in Hong Kong, there was plenty of hope at the Academy of Performing Arts annual display of its young talents this weekend.

Four Walls

Four Walls, Laughing Stone Dance Theatre, Shouson Theatre, Arts Centre, April 27, This was a performance enlivened by mobile phones, a dozen people coming in late, watches going off and a smelly lack of air conditioning. So performance conditions were hardly fair for Sin-cha Hong, trying to be moody in this tiny theatre.

Taylor-made dance

The world-renowned Paul Taylor Dance Company of the United States will give two performances of modern dance at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre Grand Theatre on Thursday and Friday at 7.30 pm.

Genius Taylor to transfix territory

It comes as little surprise that Paul Taylor, the 'giant' of modern dance, first trained as a visual artist.

The man who has been described by some as the greatest living choreographer, uses his dancers like a painter, sweeping them across his canvas, the stage, the vision constrained only by his imagination and their physical limitations.
