Arts Social! - Arts X Social Impact
The fashion industry has long been associated to overconsumption and pollution. How could the fashion industry respond to climate change and the throw-away culture of fast fashion?
 
Two local fashion designers, Kay and Toby decided to address the issue head-on. The duo founded Fashion Clinic, advocates to choose well, buy smart and re-experience fashion. Through repairing, re-shaping and redesigning former beloved garments, they promote sustainability in the fashion industry.
 
At Arts Social!, Kay and Toby will share their journey of green fashion and they are ready to chit-chat with the participants who are interested in fashion, social responsibility and enterprise.

Re-Mark is a thought-provoking new work by Resident Choreographer Sang Jijia based on his research with Italian dancers and was first premiered at Fabbrica Europa Festival in Florence in May 2018. In this new version that marks the opening of City Contemporary Dance Festival in November 2019, Sang continues his research on the relationship between body, spatiality and memory through his signature multi-faceted way. Together with CCDC dancers, he discovers the landscapes of culture and the mind as they echo the changes of times.

The production, which explores life and death, is comprised of five contemporary dance pieces, including Day on Earth, choreographed by Ms. Doris Humphrey in 1947, which was brought to Hong Kong by Dr. Tom Brown; Out of Dream (excerpt), choreographed by Rosalind Newman; Do Not Go Gentle and Ox on the Roof which are choreographed by Dr. Tom Brown; and a newly choreographed piece created by Brown’s student, Ms. Pewan Chow, Artistic Director of Passoverdance.

Hong Kong Dance Company Grand Dance Drama “L’Amour Immortel”
A timeless classic that captures the imagination of every generation
This love story originates from one of the “Strange Tales from a Chinese Studio” written by Pu Songling. It was adapted into the Hong Kong blockbuster movie “A Chinese Ghost Story” in the 1980s, and has taken on yet another incarnation as the grand dance drama “L’Amour Immortel”.
 
Nie Xiaoqian, an alluring ghost, is enslaved by a sinister demon and forced to prey on humans. When she meets and falls head-over-heels in love with the honest and good-natured Ning Caichen, she becomes determined to save him from evil forces, even at the cost of her own afterlife. In “L’Amour Immortel”, the timeless classic is filled with new spirit by the performers’ physical expression. It captures the essence of the most beautiful human values in a poignant ghost story that will touch many hearts in this broken world.

The Messiah is a 53-movement work in three parts, scored for four soloists, a mixed-voice choir, and an orchestra. We are honoured to welcome Mr. Apollo Wong, Chorus Master of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Chorus, as our conductor; as well as renowned soloists Yuki Ip from MIC, Alex Tam and Albert Lim from Hong Kong, and Reginald Mobley from the USA. They will be accompanied by an orchestra comprising 20 professional players, and a dedicated group of 70 singers prepared by MIC’s Eric Monson.
