Snow Fox Hong Kong Dance Company Lyric Theatre, APA Reviewed: Oct 11, 3pm Following last year's adaptation of Louis Cha's The Smiling, Proud Wanderer, the Hong Kong Dance Company turns to another martial arts classic, the Snow Fox and its sequel Snow Fox Addendum for its latest offering. It's a challenge for assistant artistic director Leung Kwok-shing since the saga is not a simple tale, despite being one of Cha's shortest. The story revolves around two friends Miao Renfeng (Huang Lei), Hu Yidao (Xu Qiang) and their children. When two bandits Tian Guinong (Mi Tao) and monk Baoshu (Charley Wong) plot to murder Miao, they kill Hu by mistake. Hu's son, Fei (Chen Jun), grows up vowing revenge, thinking Miao is the perpetrator. Fei falls in love with Yuan Ziyi (Su Shu) but when Yuan is badly injured, the cure - a rare flower - is accidentally destroyed by Ruolan (Tang Ya), Miao's daughter. Under the artistic direction of Leung and Lau Siu-ming, the narrative of the drama lacks direction. But that aside, the choreography - a mix of martial arts, traditional Chinese and contemporary dance - is engaging. The music composed by Liang Zhongqi adds drama to the production, but Tang steals the show with her brilliantly expressive interpretation of a girl wronged by misfortune and bad luck.
