27 June - 1 July & 4 - 8 July
TS CREW is made up of a group of Hong Kong artists with different artistic backgrounds, includes contemporary dance, martial arts tricking, traditional lion & dragon dance and capoeira. In this residency, we will modify our recent work No Dragon No Lion by getting the inspirations from culture and community of Edinburgh.
No Dragon No Lion is a contemporary twist on thetraditional Hong Kong lion dance which will extract the essence of the lion dance and integrate it with beat-boxing, tricking and contemporary dance.
During our residency in DanceBase, we will divide the whole piece into different small particles or raw materials. We will then integrate these small particles with different new elements that we will get and learn from the people and the vibe in Edinburgh to form some new particles. Finally, we will link up all these new particles to make a "new" No Dragon No Lion.
TS Crew invite members from our professional sector and public class attendees to join them each week for a class where they will share their practice and develop new elements for the work.
Book your place here by selecting the date of the class, or just turn up on the day.
Unfortunately the TS CREW have had to cancel the sharing that was planned for Friday 8th July. Make sure you see their performance at the Festival instead! https://www.dancebase.co.uk/festival-shows/a-something-no-dragon-no-lion-ts-crew-kwoks-kung-fu-and-dragon-lion-dance-team-17-28-august--2213
