2. May 2019, 17:00 - 17:30
„Prologue: The Fate of Assassins“ by Tsui Ka Hei, Haze is based on Dragon’s Delusion, a comic by KongKee (Kong Khong-Chang). The Comic is a sci-fi revisionist take on a piece of classical Chinese literature, „Encountering Sorrow“. The Poem expresses the sorrow and helplessness of Qu Yuan the poet parting with a dying kingdom. In this reinvention, the poet appears in the memories of an android, Joe, who lives a low life in the futuristic city of Hong Kong. Haunted by these sudden memories, Joe embarks on a journey to search for his true self. And he didn’t know he was pulled into a secret mission of assassinate Emperor Qin. „Prologue: The Fate of Assassins“ is a side story about the assassination attempt. With the plan of pretending a performer in front of Emperor Qin. One step closer, one step towards the accomplishment.When an animator meets a choreographer, the former seek to expand the realm of storytelling by bringing in the latest technology, virtual reality, into a performance. It raised the tough question of liveness of the performance when the dance is actually appearing in a virtual landscape. Also recalling the conflicts between Reality versus Delusion… With dancer Huen Tin Yeung (artist name: Cliff).The Dance Performance takes place at 5 PM each day.
