Review- Little Pieces- CCDC16-4-16

It is never an easy topic to talk about memory, let alone represent it on stage. Memory is incomplete; it’s fragmented; it’s missing here and there; it’s treasured but hard to recover; it appears truthful but could be deceiving; it’s everything but a solid piece that can be easily grasped and secured in your pocket.

Dying Art Forms12-2-16

These are 5 art forms that are currently performed in Asia but are predicted to be extinct within the next hundred years due to lack of interest from young people, lack of audience and several other factors.

History of the Lion Dance9-2-16

The Lion dance is a Chinese tradition synonymous with Chinese New Year. We see it happen every year and it's a big source of charitable donations for schools, temples and other organizations. Most troupes charge 2,000HKD to come to your location to perform and also take lai see packets as donations. All the money normally goes to charity. When booking a Dragon dance troupe make sure you know where your money is going. Most of the troupes would be already booked through the New Year but, who knows, maybe you'll get lucky! You may also see Lion dances at weddings and other Chinese holidays.

Review- Flawless- Udderbelly3-2-16

‘Chase the dream; not the competition’ (the dance collective’s motto) put a smile on even the notoriously hard to please Simon Cowell’s face, back in 2009, when Flawless fever hit the UK after their first appearance on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’. I’ve been a lover of them since then, and after attending their opening night at Udderbelly last night, I love them even more now!

Review- Gestalt- E Side Dance23-1-16

Oh dear ... if I put it blankly. This show certainly didn't turn out as I expected. Now don't get me wrong, I am a fan of contemporary dance shows and my decisions on this review are not based on my own personal preference. It just was, well... meh.

Review- Dancers' Homework- CCDC3-1-16

I travelled to the CCDC Dance Center in Wong Tai Sin this weekend to see their showcase of new choreographic talent, "Dancers' Homework." For those who had never been to the space before, the location of the theatre was a bit of a challenge. But within this building, there was a small studio performance space that was perfect for this type of show.
