Scott Cheung Sze-lok and Jennifer Tin Lai-ki of the Hong Kong Camy Academy of Dancing show off their skills at a preview of this summer's International Arts Carnival. The carnival, which runs from July 14 to August 29, will feature nearly 500 events, from acrobatics, puppetry, music, dance and other stage performances, to workshops, exhibitions, and school and cultural tours. One of this year's highlights is set to be Dreamscape - the Secret Garden of Guizhou, which opens the carnival. The production by the Zunyi Acrobatic Troupe and Guizhou Provincial Song and Dance Ensemble has 25 acrobatic acts and dances. DanceArt yesterday gave a preview of Animal Olympics, in which performers dressed as ostriches, panthers, frogs and dogs take part in sports such as swimming and basketball. Twenty-two performing groups from Hong Kong will take part in the carnival, with others from the mainland, Japan, Canada, Spain and Australia. Tickets go on sale today and more information is available at www.hkiac.gov.hk .
