Based on the notions of impurity and transformation, BSTRD is an energetic and minimalist solo performance featuring Katerina Andreou and a single vinyl turntable. She is accompanied on stage by a pounding soundtrack inspired by house culture.
First presented in 2012, this piece from Christian Rizzo's repertoire is the result of a collaboration with the dancer Kerem Gelebek, with whom he worked on many occasions in the past. "When I approached Kerem for a solo performance, my first desire was to concentrate on melancholy and exile,"said Rizzo. "The concept of exile no longer confines to a territory but to the self: exiling oneself from oneself. Melancholy, however, remains obligatory. Kerem manipulates the space on stage and lays down danced fragments such as haikus, sketches, or notes that, together, form a collection of thoughts born from movement.”
Hè The Rite of Spring
The performance includes The Rite of Spring and Hè Dancing with The World.
The Rite of Spring: Composed by Igor Stravinsky and choreographed by Vaslav Nijinsky, it was first performed at Paris in 1913, which caused a sensation, and many have called the first-night reaction a "riot". At its 110th anniversary, Miranda Chin Dance Company choreographs again with creativity, with the essence of Eastern and Western dances, typical martial arts – tai chi. Aspiring to reflect the uniqueness of Hong Kong culture, it is a tribute to the composer, enhancing the cultural and artistic exchange with France, to reach a mutual harmony by modern dance.
