Body-in-Progress: 聚光dance · 散光show

光合作用(Photosynthesis):植物,有光就有命,將世界上的二氧化碳、水,轉化成葡萄糖同氧氣。氧氣釋回大氣,繼續循環,生生不息。

沒有光的日子,就是醞釀、等待、死亡。光之創作,鉅細無遺,從沒停下來。

生滅、聚散,光著身子來到地球,由「零」開始。說到底,靈魂走的時候,總會學到甚麼——縱使,只是一點點。

經歷講座、公開工作坊、多次實習,4位光之舞者聚過了,經歷光合作用——人、光、思、憶、情——不知有沒剩下葡萄糖?如今即將散開了,是回歸氧氣的時候了,誠邀閣下前來呼吸。

In Your Face

Abby Chan x INJURY

As the world becomes angrier, this video emphasize catching the exaggerated expressions, gestures and actions of rage. The issues may be different, but the anger expressed by people around the world is universally understood, like —– emoji. Film is a natural medium to explore the idea of uncontrollable emotions. The behavior can look cartoonish, clownish, or immature. Hopefully this humorous tone helps to drive home the idea that anger uncontrolled does benefits no one. ACTION (camera phrase) with good intention is in need.

Another attempt of this video is merging film, dance and the fashion design of INJURY together. The name INJURY – when you are being cut and sewn you are in a situation of INJURY same as fabrics. Same as people.

“Dick Wong Tai-fai’s solo for Abby Chan Man-yee, Fissure, explores the conflict between the rational and emotional sides of the brain. Chan dances the same sequence of steps over and over while her “other” self, projected on a screen, gives her instructions. The introduction of music transforms the steps as they are accompanied by first one, then another sequence from Stravinsky’s TheRite of Spring. A smart piece performed with commitment by Chan. “

Unlock Body Lab II :

見光舞蹈會

從身認識燈光,
讓燈光認識你。

科技覇道,今日的光已非昨日的光。

燈光與電腦濫交,數碼互動,人體感應…五光十色如夢如幻,吸睛吸金背後,又反智又虛偽,没了人性,非常當代。

光對於你,除了眼光光、光復、走光、激光…還有甚麼?
今回工作坊,返璞歸真,嘗試運用光源再次發現身體。

Pixels in the Closet


In a unique collaboration between Hong Kong choreographer Abby Chan and Denver digital artist Bryan Leister, dance, digital images and sound tell a dark tale from childhood memories. Motion capture technology using infrared cameras, inverse kinematics recognition and Kinect software will allow Chan to control and create music in real-time through her dance movements. The combination of Chinese dance and cultural icons melded with the latest in digital game/controller technology and graphics promises to deliver a powerful theater experience.

2010年社區文化大使推出的重點節目-《 康城記 》;是一種更親近綠色環保生活的環境舞蹈表演。以鬼馬靈活的現代舞演繹手法,顯示出人類如何與環境競逐及和平共處。以舞蹈藝術倡導綠色生活的重要,宣揚保護大自然及珍惜自然資源的訊息。

建設城市理想生活,盡情領略生命的岌岌可危,遠 離夢想更遠一步
亮點擁有不斷擴建的乾旱 桑拿,超凡豪雨蒸氣浴,悠然全極端氣候
坐享全球水位 上升最高位置,飽覽壯觀冰川溶解世界奇景
打造敗壞生態環境,彰顯史上最強漏油本色,360度火山灰環抱大自然
美麗土地逐漸消失,人類動物頻臨絕種
地球滅亡,近在伬尺
那~ 將會是尊貴的你;未來最想擁有的嗎?
