Jockey Club Community Performing Arts Biennale 2016: Seeking Martial Arts Groups
Whether you do capioera, taekwondo, tai chi or other martial art forms… we want you!
As the finale celebration event of the Jockey Club Community Performing Arts Biennale, we present City Dancing, where over one afternoon, we bring together 500 people from all over Hong Kong to move together!
As part of this day, professional award-winning choreographer Giselle Liu is creating a 20-minute movement piece (incorporating dance, martial arts and other movement styles) for 500 people.
We are currently seeking groups of martial artists to take part… all ages welcomed! The participants will work with Giselle to prepare for the “warrior” section of the piece, where she will draw from the participants’ movement vocabulary to create patterns that showcase their abilities. Participants need not worry that they do not “dance”!
