Though they are not playing until October, it's never too early to get tickets to see modern dance company Folkwang Tanzstudio (FTS, left). An artistically independent company, under the direction of modern-dance divas Pina Bausch and Henrietta Horn, FTS' free philosophy has allowed many choreographers to chart their own paths without the need to adhere to a dictated style. This approach guarantees fresh and innovative pieces. Some of the biggest players in the German dance scene have worked with FTS, including Urs Dietrich and Malou Airaudo. Two dance pieces make up the upcoming programme - Emerging and Solo. The pieces are located at opposite ends of the emotional spectrum, with Emerging having a more exuberant mood in contrast to Solo's study of loneliness. October 4-5, 8pm. Shouson Theatre, Hong Kong Arts Centre. $80-$120 Ticketek: 3128 8288. It's an evening of multi-sensory pleasure as avant-garde group Theatre du Pif presents September Song at the Fringe Club this weekend. The music is by Mark Chan, Kenneth Yu and Sean Curran, there's a poetry reading of Dylan Thomas and Bertolt Brecht, and there's a video made by Hong Kong film-makers Kwan Pun-leung and Amos Lee of Theatre du Pif's stellar performance of The Overcoat, which garnered rave reviews at this summer's Edinburgh Festival. September 25, 8pm. E&J Gallo Gallery, Fringe Club, 2 Lower Albert Road, Central. Free admission for song session, $40-$50 for video screening. Tel: 2521 7251.
