EVENT DESCRIPTION

Internationally renowned choreographer Helen Lai is staging an exquisite performance that blends poetry, dance, drama, music and rituals, with an award winning team of masters: Tan Dun – Composer, Grammy and Oscar winner; Tim Yip – Set and Costume Designer, Oscar and British Academy of Film and Television Arts award winner; Leo Cheung – International Lighting Designer, nine times recipient of the Best Lighting Design of the Hong Kong Drama Awards; Anthony Yeung – Sound Designer, winner of prestigious Sound Design Awards; Sunny Chan – seven times recipient of the Best Makeup Design of the Hong Kong Drama Awards; with the dancers from Hong Kong Dance Company.

Nine Songs has been inspired by the works of the great Chinese poet Qu Yuan and composer Tan Dun. It presents ancient legend in contemporary context, fusing the specially composed score and movements with emotion and imagery of nature, telling the stories of human and nature, life and death, and reality and dreams.
