Helen Lai Hoi-ling’s latest collaboration with the City Contemporary Dance Company is a piece of dance theatre inspired by Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude. The veteran choreographer will team up with British music artist Peter Stuart to tell stories of the Buendia family down to seven generations. Wrestling with solitude in the absence of dialogue, the carefully defined movements highlight many facets of life – desire, love, conflict, joy, death, gains and losses.

December 11-12, 8pm, Auditorium, Kwai Tsing Theatre, 12 Hing Ning Road, Kwai Chung, HK$140-HK$250 Urbtix. Inquiries: 2329 7803
