Featured Event
Come Across
CCDC's new production in December: Come Across – a dynamic and captivating double bill from Hong Kong and Korea – Nuts’hell by acclaimed Hong Kong choreographer Noel Pong and Jangdan by multitalented Korean choreographer Kim Jaeduk.

Noel’s new piece Nuts’hell is based on the controversial Rosenhan Experiment, depicting an absurd world where the boundary between normal and abnormal is vague, and “labels” overrides rationality. Kim Jaeduk's new work, Jangdan, originates from the Korean word 장단, a traditional repetitive percussive rhythm that creates emotions with tempo and volume. This innovative piece blends traditional music with Taekkyeon martial arts and contemporary dance to create an irresistible vibe on the stage!
Come Across
Date & Time: 7 – 8.12.2018 * [Fri, Sat] 8pm
Venue: Auditorium, Kwai Tsing Theatre
Ticket price: $250 | $180 | $140

International Exhibition about Creativity – DesignInspire 2018
Organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), DesignInspire is an international exhibition to showcase Hong Kong and global innovation and creativity, concurrently held with the Business of Design Week (BODW). It will take place across three days on 6-8 Dec 2018 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre featuring Hong Kong as the global capital of design.
This year, the expo’s Partner City is Melbourne. Long known as one of the world’s most liveable cities, she has become a focal point for leading-edge design–ranging from architecture and public art to product design–as well as design education. The city’s design strength is coming to life in Hong Kong, sparking a dialogue with global industry professionals under the theme “Think ∙ Collaborate ∙ Create”.
An array of interactive installations, design projects and objects will be featured, with global creative elites from nearly 10 countries and regions to showcase their creativities. With the overarching theme of “Co-create A Happy City”, the “Urbanovation” pavilion is not to be missed with highlights on how innovative design can combine with sophisticated technologies to shape happier, more efficient and more user-friendly cities.
HKTDC invited some 20 emerging young design talents from various disciplines to create a series of modern and contemporary installations to re-interpret and pay tribute to traditional culture. By blending in traditional cultural elements to the novel ideas and vivid artworks, the project demonstrates how traditional wisdom are being sustained from the silver generation to the young generation, and how both generations join hands to revitalise the treasures from the past. The project is supported by Hong Kong Interior Design Association, The Hong Kong Institute of Architects and Design Council of Hong Kong.

Calming the Chaotic Seas – 10% discount offer
“If regrets are inevitable in times of turmoil, let the seas carry all.”
Though reluctant, Cheung Po Tsai’s life was full of dares, risks, hatred and love. The gangster turned into an imperial official at last, hoping to serve the country and people’s wellbeing. However against his wishes, the choice caused great suffering to his comrades and left him die with regrets. History documents his deeds but not his emotions. Playwright Mandu, Director Dominic Cheung and Choreographer Yang Yuntao from Hong Kong Dance Company will reconstruct the complicated and confusing life of Cheung Po Tsai on stage.
