DancingAngels “Body Voice”

Introduction

This year, DancingAngels is organizing “Body Voice”, an nine-month project for the General Education in Arts Programme for Tertiary Students.

If dance is the footprints of our hearts,
Then
What kind of scenario will be added to a dance
by the kinetic energy of the body accompanied by sounds?
What kind of marks will it leave on the heart?

This is a laboratory for contemporary dance and sounds. Tertiary students will get to understand their expressiveness and conditions of their body from diverse and in-depth angles. They will be reflecting and experiencing the close relationship between arts and human, as well as creating the creative space of “art = life” through regular participation in art activities.

Target Participants Suitable for tertiary students who are interested in dance appreciation and production, regardless of prior experience
Language Programme conducted in Cantonese
Project Period Three phases over nine months (October 2017 to July 2018)
Coordination and Main Instructors DancingAngels
