Untitled III by Wayson Poon
Form without form,
Path without path,
Motion without motion,
Self without self.
 
The choreography is inspired by the paintings of Liu Wentao, in which 'the intertwining straight lines result in a tranquil geometric space'.  From a Chinese philosophy perspective, the choreography goes on to explore the concepts of ‘dot-line-plane’ through the physicality of the dancers, their extended dynamics, and the relations in between these two.  Untitled III reveals the shifting relations between the states of ‘Have Not, or Non-existence’ and ‘Have, or Existence’, further to reflect the emotional and physical distance between individuals in order to attain inner peace.

奧里 ‧ 康坤拉(法國/老撾)|皮歇‧克朗淳(泰國)《碰上碰》
 
繁為簡 碰觸異同 身/心/靈 全方位搭通
 
皇權簇擁的陽春白雪、民間起動的街頭文化,本是兩條平行線,如何產生交叉點?一手興辦泰國首個當代舞團的皮歇‧克朗淳、在法國自創多媒體舞團的老撾裔舞者奧里‧康坤拉,分別解拆箜舞(泰國傳統宮廷舞蹈)和嘻哈(hip hop)既有程式,掏空前設返本歸元,從基本肢體語言出發,互相摸底、交手、聆聽、了解,啟動彷彿不可能的跨文化對話。破舊可以立新,破新也可以創舊,陽剛對峙也可締造和諧。兩位享譽國際舞壇的亞洲舞者,把我們從舞蹈與舞蹈,帶回人與人之間,異中求同,同中存異;不為藝術而藝術,全方位接駁身、心、靈。

【Hong Kong Arts Centre】 The 24th ifva Awards Now Calling for Entry
Organised by the Hong Kong Arts Centre and sponsored by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, the 24th ifva Awards officially opens in August. This year ifva attempts to connect with the unique world of the creators, and also queries the meaning and essence of creating. Apart from inviting creative talents to serve as jurors, this year ifva’s publicity collaterals and trailers are all created by young independent filmmaker Wong Fei-pang, who looks into the inner lonely world of artists from his own first-hand perspective. The black tone of the visual reflects the lonesome and the single-mindedness which might remind us of falling into the darkest abyss, while the white marks on it looks like sprays from the sea, allegorising whirlpools in the mind during brainstorming. All these imageries relate back to the beliefs that a creative talent holds on to: “Only for the sake of creation – delve into it when the time comes.” 

ifva provides the soil to cultivate creativity, and offers a platform for emerging creative talents to demonstrate their capabilities. The 24th ifva is now calling for entry under five categories: Open, Youth, Animation, Media Art and Asian New Force, inviting short films, animations and media art works from locally and across Asia.
 
The 24th ifva is now calling for entry:
Submission deadline: 15 October, 2018 (Monday), 6:00 p.m.

"Believe in the miracle of life, till the last of the last.”
 
Three youngsters break into the abandoned Namiya General Store and connect themselves to a time and space that spans over 33 years. Starting from a letter, the three people have answered one after another the inner troubles and confusion of several young people. How can we go ahead? The end is not in sight and there are many exits... Best selling Japanese author Keigo Higashino’s feel-good novel will be staged in Hong Kong in October.
