HKCC Towards 50th Anniversary Dance Drama – The Dancing Gallery

10-11/11/2018

 

To celebrate the upcoming 50th anniversary of The Hong Kong Children’s Choir (HKCC), members of HKCC Dance Program presented 2 shows at Queen Elizabeth Stadium on 10 and 11 November, and invited Mr Samson Yeung as the Programme Guide to lead the audiences to travel through the fascinating world of dancing inspired by numbers of famous paintings from both the west and the east.

 

The shows were started with the energetic performances by Tap Dance, Jazz Dance and Hip Hop members. Modern abstract paintings such as Red on Maroon by Mark Rothko and Victory Boogie Woogie by Piet Mondrian were lively illustrated by the young dancers under the rhythmic music and the vibrant lighting effects. Ballet members then transformed numbers of famous works by the renowned 19th-century French artist Edgar Degas such as The Dancing Class and The Star, to a series of lifelike motion pictures on stage, as if travelling back in time with the audiences.

 

In the second half of the shows, Chinese Dance members presented 11 chapters of dances inspired by Qingming Shanghe Tu, the acclaimed painting of Song Dynasty artist Zhang Zeduan, which captured the daily life of people and the landscape of the capital, Bianjing during Northern Song. Senior D and Concert Choir stepped on stage and performed the new choral works by Mr Yin Ng and Ms Jessie Yau commissioned by HKCC for this show, Chang He Dian Shui and The Song of Qingming Shanghe Tu, to further enrich the vivid scenery on the stage.

 

The shows were a great success only with the support of the Programme Guide Mr Samson Yeung; the efforts of HKCC Dance Supervisor Ms Michelle Loi and all the tutors over past year; the hard work of more than 700 members from both the Dance and Choral Program; the applause from the audiences and the works of all the staffs involved in the shows. Hope to see you again in the celebration events of HKCC 50th Anniversary next year!
