06 Mar Wind And Cloud : Chinese Dance Showcase – Part 2
This production is an international collaboration project as we have invited a guest choreographer, Chris Lam Wai Yan from Hong Kong, to collaborate with us on some choreography. She was graduated in Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts majoring in Chinese Dance, and was actively involved in various major performances including the opening ceremony of 15th Asian Games in Doha and pre-opening ceremony of 29th Olympic Games in Beijing. She created her first dance theatre work in 2011 <Heroine>, a contemporary Chinese Dance piece that illustrates different characteristics of modern women. In our mixed-bill Chinese Dance performance, she will be in-charge of the choreography for Chinese Fan Dance, Mongolian Dance and Korean Drum Dance.
Most of the choreographies in this production are done by Jack Kek, who graduated from the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts major in Chinese Dance, and was previously one of the principal dancers with the renowned Cloud Gate Dance Theatre 2 in Taiwan. After accomplished a number of contemporary dance productions upon his returning to Malaysia, he is now ready to promote another one of his highlighted professional – Chinese Dance. He is currently the artistic director of Qi Dancers Chinese Dance Troupe.
This production is significant as it brings out cultural and artistic value via Chinese dance. A wide range of Chinese Dance styles are introduced throughout the mixed-bill performance, providing different aesthetic experiences in each dance. Besides, it is a great opportunity of cultural exchange and learning through the collaboration with international artist.
