Presenting the struggles we share under the pandemic through original songs and choreography

Dance With Hope
For the past couple of years, we have experienced a peculiar situation. Affected by the epidemic, we have started to contemplate the meaning of our lives and how to adapt to the altered living mode.

Original music, songs and choreography, created from our hearts and delivered through our bodies and voice, are to convey the struggles and change in the way of thinking we have experienced and impact on us since the day ‘it appeared’! Hope is always there after crisis!

Formed by Andy Wong, a renowned local dance artist, in collaboration with local musicians and singers Music Soulmates and professional dancers. They have been active in artistic creation and education. Past works include multimedia dance theatre Separating From Separation, Body Voice and EP song Grateful.
