From the Top is a witty contemporary dance work that explores the power relations between performers and dance makers. The piece presents to the audience a fictional scenario based on the everyday life of dance artists and looks at the absurd nature of so-called artistic integrity and what it means to make art. Action on stage is juxtaposed with voiceovers and surtitles to reveal the politics between the ever-demanding choreographer and dancers who continuously attempt to fulfil a choreographer’s artistic vision.
From the Top was commissioned and produced by the Hong Kong Arts Festival and was premiered at The Hong Kong Jockey Club Contemporary Dance Series 2015
*This show will not be performed on Mondays*
