The talents of the 'new wave' of Chinese choreographers will be on show in a production at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts Drama Theatre late this month. The City Contemporary Dance Company's thirtysomething showcases works by its resident choreographers Pun Siu-fai and Mui Cheuk-yin, and guest choreographer Zhang Xiaoxiong. These territory-based artists represent the maturity of a new generation of Chinese choreographers - all aged under 40. Born in the 1950s, they grew up in the turmoil of the Cultural Revolution. Pun was transformed by a revolutionary dagger dance into a patriotic student, Mui was a member of the Red Scarf Young Pioneers, and Zhang fled to China from Cambodia aged 12. In the 1980s, they departed from their Chinese dance training and began looking for new inspiration from contemporary dance. They are the first generation of Hong Kong choreographers to explore their identities through creative channels which lie somewhere between Chinese and Western dance styles. And thirtysomething reflects the contemporary Chinese spirit of this talented trio, with their distinctive styles evident: Pun's subtlety, Mui's gracefulness and Zhang's fluidity. Three of the most important choreographers of their generation promise an evening of sensibility and sensousness. Tickets for the September 26 to September 28 shows are available at Urbtix.
