Handpicked by Artistic Director Willy Tsao, "Amidst the Wind" is a feast of the most exhilarating dance excerpts from City Contemporary Dance Company's productions from the past two decades since the return of Hong Kong to the Motherland. This mixed bill includes works by renowned choreographers who make Hong Kong their base, including Tsao himself, Helen Lai and Sang Jijia, as well as recent creations from new stars in choreography, Noel Pong and Dominic Wong. From scenes in a living room filled with sorrow to a cinema full of laughter, taking inspirations from the Chinese classic "Dream of the Red Chamber" to Western literary masterpiece Kafka's "Metamorphosis", Amidst the Wind distills the essence of CCDC into one unforgettable evening.
