“Abby Chan possesses a theatrical flair, a global vision, and a rich sense of the contemporary.” – Sue Healey
Independent choreographer and dancer Abby Chan stage work is not limited to dancing. Working with different artists, she also takes on acting roles and also works as a physical movement director for theatre productions. Currently living in the United States, Abby returned to Hong Kong for the “ON VIEW: HONG KONG” project, working as Assistant Director. “It was really special to see how the artists communicated within a group to find the content and methods they wanted to work with. It was also a truly unique creative experience.”
For the “ON VIEW: HONG KONG” videos, each of the participating artists was asked to select three sets of clothing for the filming. Using the clothes to tell a personal story, Abby put together a collage of ‘Red, White, and Blue’: red, the colour associated with orthopedic underwear and female identity; white, a wedding dress, a symbol of an important milestone; and blue is denim, the traditional American fabric representing her life in the country she now calls home.
