8/F Platform - Dancers' Creation Hong Kong Dance Company Sheung Wan Municipal Services Building Reviewed: January 13 Hong Kong Dance Company's so-called rehearsal-room dance series continues with Dancers' Creation - an hour-long performance comprising six, short, original pieces choreographed by the dancers. From traditional Chinese folkdance (with references to the contemporary) to edgy solos, these pieces demonstrate the dancers' proficiency in their chosen techniques. The show opens with Flower Whisper by Lena Lin. It's probably the less challenging, but lively folk tunes set the rhythm for dancers Carmen Yau and Kong Lai-ming to explore the relationship between movements and senses. After the Beginning from principals Xie Yin, Yang Yizi and Chen Lei is expressive but sometimes difficult to follow. The best are Su Shu's Heart in Blossom and Mr Huang and Miss Hua by Tina Hua and Huang Lei (below). The former is a monologue about the dancer's most intimate feelings, whereas the latter is a comical commentary on the relationship between the two dancers. The routine is superbly choreographed and executed, highlighting Huang and Hua's great onstage chemistry. The competence and creativity showcased in this performance demonstrates once again that the company's identity problem lies not with the dancers, but a lack of direction from artistic director Hu Jialu.
