林嘉欣更加嘗試擴闊推廣層面,讓紙上的作品化身成舞動的靈魂。她與旅居紐約的舞蹈家陳敏兒Abby,共同以渡部的畫作為靈感編織出一支雙人舞,並由知名廣告導演蔡美詩Maisy將之拍成一支影像創作。林嘉欣希望透過不同藝術家的眼睛,看到不一樣的世界,也希望將自己看見的震撼,透過未來各種類型策展,跟更多朋友分享心靈的悸動。

古蹟開倉

突破美學丶突破常規丶突破一般舞蹈觀賞角度,遊走孩子或成人禁區之被包圍舞蹈劇場最新創作。由陳敏兒編丶導丶演, 夥拍著名編劇丶導演陳志樺,聯同香港本地一眾台前幕後精英,於前身為屠房之古蹟牛棚12號,上演一幕幕被免治 (屠宰)之成長矛盾故事。

This murky immersive dance theatre invites audiences into the experience of bringing up taboo subjects while growing up, intermixed with the story of Ophelia, and the installation of haunting scenery at the heritage slaughter house Cattle Depot no.12. Choreographed/performed by Abby Chan, and co-directed with well-known theatre playwright Mann Chan, in collaboration with brilliant local dance artists and designers, Kidult Ophelia encourages the audience to bring their own imagination to the show.

another Excerpt from Quando Sr Bastos encontra Sra Chan @ Hong Kong Fringe Club City Festival 2009

Estrada Branca

When acclaimed Hong Kong dancer-choreographer Abby Chan and Brazilian dancer-choreographer Otávio Bastos first met in New York, they were both delighted by how much they understood each other’s body language. The encounter sparked a productive artist-in-residence scheme spanning New York – São Paulo – Hong Kong. The result is “When Mr Bastos Meets Ms Chan”, a celebration of bodies, movement and body language, expressing the truths of two very different cultures.
