Israeli contemporary dance groups to showcase in Hong Kong E-mail

To kick-start a three month promotion of Israeli contemporary dance performers, renowned Israeli actress-choreographer-dancer Renana Raz opened the second Tai Kwun Dance Season, staging the 16 Strings and One Body at JC Cube on 27-29 September.

Ranana skilfully transplants the heart of chamber music into her choreography, an inspiring juxtaposition of dance and music which elevates the performing art experience. The stirring chamber music was performed by the Toscanini String Quartet, formed by four members of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.

The Tai Kwun festival features a series of programmes by overseas and local artists and groups, generating dialogue about the feminine identity while disrupting external perceptions of dance by testing boundaries and conventions.

A total of seven programmes are to be held from September to October to explore two key themes: identifying and breaking the boundaries of dance.

Later this month, choreographer and performer Dana Ruttenberg will present Dream Team on 24-27 October – a dance revolution waiting to be sparked from an ordinary “underground” ballroom! Dana is a 60 year-old performer, a “hasbeen” dancer, physiotherapist, and a single mother who seeks to return to the stage and a choreographer. In the ballroom, you are up close with the performers as they reveal their dreams, fantasies, and nightmares.
