Hope Beneath The Rubble: Two Dance Acts
At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshless;
Neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is,
But neither arrest nor movement. And do not call it fixity,
Where past and future are gathered. Neither movement from nor towards,
Neither ascent nor decline. Except for the point, the still point,
There would be no dance, and there is only the dance.
— T. S. Eliot, “Burnt Norton,” in Four Quartets, 15
project began as a search of how a work of art and one’s creative practice embedded in the Christian faith tradition could mediate grieves of personal and public devastation toward a sense of regeneration and hope. In the spirit of the QU4RTETS
, Hong Kong-based dance group Passoverdance
and Tokyo-based dancer Airi Suzuki
present two dance acts as similar expressions of finding hope amid the rubble of loss or suffering.
Choreographed by Pewan Chow
presents Xin Xiang
“馨香” - a 30
-min trio piece featuring dancers Antoinette Mak
, Rebecca Wong
, and Sze Ling Wong
- based on the imagery of a tree as an expression of self-realisation, resilience and self-contentment through the seasons of life's journey. Following Xin Xiang
, Airi Suzuki
presents a 30
-min duo-piece as a parallel but more intimate response to Xin Xiang
in the form of a personal reflection of gaps in human relationships, and the possible means of transcending them.
A dialogue between Passoverdance
, Airi Suzuki
and the audience will follow after the performance.
