Choreographer Robert Tannion presents latest work Fetish:Stories
British avant-garde choreographer, dancer and video artist Robert Tannion brings his latest work, Fetish:Stories, to the Hong Kong Cultural Centre from April 25 to 27 (Friday to Sunday).
Curtain time is 8pm in the Cultural Centre's Studio Theatre. The production is presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department.
Fetish:Stories uses dance, movement, text, film and projections to explore fetishes of a sexual, religious, national and cultural nature. For a fetishist, hair, guns, goldfish -- even a photocopier -- can take on obsessive significance.
The programme contains scenes of an adult nature.
Robert Tannion has performed and choreographed worldwide with the critically acclaimed contemporary dance troupe DV8. He and the group won an Emmy Award, a San Francisco Film Festival Golden Spire award, the Prix Italia and an IMZ Dance Screen award for their dance film Enter Achilles.
Fetish:Stories marks Tannion's first collaboration with producer and scenographer Taurus Wah, and dancers Rossen Milhailov from Bulgaria, Ooi Inn Pang from the UK, and Hong Kong's own Abby Chan, Chan Lai Sheung, Frankie Ho, Allen Lam, Ritchie Law and Antoinette Mak.
Tannion will conduct a modern dance workshop, Moving with Intent, on April 6 (Sunday) from 3pm to 6pm and 7pm to 10pm in Rehearsal Room GR2, 8/F, Backstage of the Grand Theatre, at the Cultural Centre. Applicants should possess basic modern dance training. For registration and enquiries, please contact Ms Mok at 2268 7323.
