Bridges are everywhere, they connect different spaces and allow communities to meet. They unite us – bring us to our next adventure and connect friends and neighbours. Hong Kong is reopening, and now we can finally connect with each other and with our audiences. Hong Kong Ballet is launching “BRIDGES”, a special dance video project and competition which will connect all of us through our shared love of dance.
Many bridges in Hong Kong have unique characteristics. Some are modern, some are historical; others are landmarks and our generation’s collective memories. We invite you to create short dance pieces on video, on a bridge of your choice. Find the bridges and interesting sceneries around them; and discover the beauty of our home.
The best entries of the competition can win our merchandise and tickets to our productions. Furthermore, we would like to commission three high quality dance videos in this theme from the dance community. Upon successful vetting of your video proposal, we can provide a production fee of HKD10,000 for shooting of the videos. More details below.
We may be apart, but by sharing our love of dance virtually, we can still “dance together”.
So pick up your phone, start filming and we look forward to your submission!
