An encyclopaedia of the new landscape of Asian dance is the best description of this project by theatre-maker, visual artist and designer Choy Ka Fai. He talked to 88 dance-makers in five countries, and made a documentary about the influence of local context on their life and work. He created a performance with some of them, two of which form part of this programme. ‘A jewel of performance-art with exciting contemporary material, and danced with a brilliance you rarely see.’ (Neue Zürcher Zeitung)
Alongside the Softmachine performance, Explore will present the 88 documentary video portraits by Choy Ka Fai. He put them in an installation which has already been on show in various cities in Asia, Australia and Europe. The installation travels with the performance and is shown in the theatre foyers.
