Did they exist or not

On an island or not

Was it an Ocean or not

That swallowed them up or not

- Szymborska

Programme Length

Production Team




DanceArt is a pioneer in self-choreographed solo productions in Hong Kong.  In this dance theatre, the group will be presenting a poignant work featuring themes on Hong Kong.  Under the artistic direction of Francis Leung, and building on fifteen years of collaboration between Leung and Andy Wong since they founded DanceArt in 1995, the group strives to take the art of dance to wider and higher realms of excellence.  DanceArt has been a one-year grant recipient of the Hong Kong Arts Development Council since 2000, and received two-year grant since 2013.  It has gone on cultural exchange tours to many parts of the world, including the Mainland, Taiwan, the United States and Canada.  In 2014, M-cident received the Hong Kong Dance Alliance Dance Award - Outstanding Dance Production.
