In response to the latest COVID-19 situation, we are working on rescheduling HK Ballet x M+ Live Art: Beyond Carbon. Please stay tuned and check back for more details soon on our website and social media.
Hong Kong Ballet teams up with M+, Hong Kong’s new visual culture museum, in partnership with The ADM Capital Foundation, HK2050isNOW and CWR, to present Beyond Carbon. This ground-breaking interdisciplinary immersive experience includes a series of thought-provoking world premieres by international and Hong Kong choreographers that explore the timely topic of climate change. An explosion of ideas and creativity, this bold fusion of inspiring dance, talks and workshops takes place throughout M+’s iconic new Herzog & de Meuron-designed building in West Kowloon Cultural District.
Dutch-based American Stephen Shropshire’s intriguing new work The Measures (previously titled How to Mourn a Glacier) explores the loss of one of nature’s truly remarkable phenomena by soulfully blending drama with powerful movement. With his fiercely compelling The Lost Season set to Vivaldi’s iconic ‘The Four Seasons’, re-ordered and augmented with newly-commissioned electronic music, HKB’s Choreographer-in-Residence Hu Song Wei Ricky ponders the ways in which our weather is changing due to how we are treating our planet. Ten additional short pieces, choreographed by Jessica Burrows, Luis Cabrera, Sarita Chan, Feng Jingyi, Li Lin, Lin Chang-yuan Kyle, Leung Chunlong, Forrest Rain Oliveros and Jonathan Spigner, are featured at public spaces throughout M+ to encompass timely environmental and climate change topics.
Beyond Carbon: The Climate Change Project will be entirely free to M+ visitors. Together we hope to inspire members of our community to take steps now to confront the threats we face to ensure a better future for us all.
