Cypher – An encounter of dance and movement live and online

Freespace
Art Park, West Kowloon Cultural District
Hong Kong

This autumn, Freespace presents a three-month encounter of dance and movement live and online with innovative performances by regional artists. Events include With/out Umeda, a showcase of works by Japanese choreographer and multidisciplinary artist Hiroaki Umeda devised in response to the 2020 reality of travel restrictions and social distancing; The Battle, a cross-genre blend of dance competition and theatrical performance; and Hong Kong Dance Company’s new performance Convergence that, along with an immersive VR video, offers new perspectives on movement through the lens of Chinese dance and martial arts. The programme also includes a range of master classes, movement and graffiti workshops, seminars, exhibitions and other activities in and around Freespace. Buy tickets now: https://wk.org.hk/3m2pGvh
