20.10.2017 (Fri) With post-performance meet-the-artist session

If you can see the whole world in a flower, can you pass a whole life within one dream?

‘Life has always seemed to me like a plant lives on its rhizome.  Its true life is invisible, hidden in the rhizome.  The part that appears above ground lasts only a single summer.  Then it withers away – an ephemeral apparition.  When we think of the unending growth and decay of life and civilizations, we cannot escape the impression of absolute nullity.  Yet, I have never lost a sense of something that lives and endures underneath the eternal flux.  What we see is the blossom, which passes.  The rhizome remains.’ – C.G. Jung, Memories, Dreams, Reflections 

Following the enquiry into the relationship between life and time in Dehydrated Flower, Ivy Tsui is using day-time flowering water lilies as the introduction, the human body as the media and voices as the navigator.  She repeatedly enters dreams that may be yours, mine or his.  As we experience the moments of blooming water lily welcoming sunlight, are we in fact wandering between a ‘dream’ and ‘reality’?

Audience will be seated on the floor and is requested to take off their shoes before entering the performance area. Please dress casually and wear socks. Wearing pajamas are also welcome. 

Audience will need to wear a headphone during the performance. Programme conducted in Cantonese

Programme Length

Ivy Tsui is an independent choreographer and dancer born in the 1980s. She started her training in dance at the age of six. She graduated from the School of Dance of The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts in 2009 and is the winner of the Award for Young Artist (Dance), the Hong Kong Arts Development Awards 2015 presented by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council.

She is skillful in choreographing and creating site-specific dance. She seeks inspiration from the environment. She breaks the limitations of the distance with the audience, walks close to them and shares the moment. Tsui is also highly sensitive towards the nature and enjoys using flowers as her themes. Some of her works include: Dehydrated Flowers, Morning Glory, and Frangipani. Her style is reputed as poetic, simple and strong. She concisely applies layered metaphors to inquire about the existence of the human body.

Apart from solo creations, Tsui also welcomes different forms of sharing, collaboration and studies.
