HONG KONG INTERNATIONAL CHOREOGRAPHY FESTIVAL

香港國際編舞節

The 5th Hong Kong Choreography Festival (HKICF) will be held on June 2020, at Sheung Wan Civic Centre Theatre.

Over three evenings, there will be a short and long performances by all the resident artists who have been part of the HKICAROS as well as master teachers who will bring their productions to the festival.

由合一空間(Unity Space)主辦的「香港國際編舞節」 (Hong Kong International Choreography Festival, HKICF),今年已經踏入第五年。 當中《伊卡洛斯駐場計劃》(Hong Kong International Collective Artists in Residency for Opportunities and Sustainability, HKICAROS)也已經在5月展開, 演出部分則安排了於6月三天一如既往在上環文娛中心劇院進行。

RATIONALE | 理念

The Hong Kong International Choreography Festival (HKICF) is modelled specifically after the residency HKICAROS so as to give more opportunities to local and international artists living and working in Hong Kong by interacting and working with international artists from across the world.
So far the HKICF has invited great dance artists and choreographers to perform their productions: Roberto Olivan, Edivaldo Ernesto, Judith Sanchez, Alexandra Waierstall, Sasha Roubicek, Jose Agudo, Bodhi Project SEAD, Aura Dance Theatre, Jukstapoz Dance Company, Andrea Pena & Artists amongst others.

For the 5th edition we will offer another great benefit to all artists involved in the residency HKICAROS and perform their production at the festival HKICF.

Wishing to support and nurture the local dance community thus Unity Space offers 2 performance prices of 5000 HKD and 3000 HKD respectively. The nomination will be selected by an arts committee who will evaluate the process of the artists and their performances. The arts committee members will be announced soon.

編舞節的藝術總監梵天與(Vangelis Legakis)經過多年的研究探問,以東西方哲學共融的理念,成立了合一空間,與藝術家分享經驗,並提供一個文化交流的平台,讓不同文化、種族、信仰及年齡的藝術家,在舞蹈下無分彼此去尋求嶄新突破,啟發創意並敢於冒險,強調可持續性,鼓勵個人成長。 梵指出,策劃駐場計劃是希望創造一個環境,不只是支持與協助他們編創舞作,也希望他們能夠有所感,而不單單倚賴思考想像。尤其是在節奏急速的當代社會,能夠打開心靈,透過冥想、正念、氣功等內觀方法,「用思想去感受,以心作思考」,才可達到身心平衡,有利發展。因此藝術家們在駐留期間,每天早上也會有專業課堂,大家就如一同在舞團內工作;而逢週四傍晚,也會圍圈討論,與本地社群溝通、交流,互相聆聽,並且會安排資深老師為大家授課。同時,主辦單位還加入東方哲學、能量運用,以至治癒方式等元素,刺激藝術家們從不同角度去思考與感受。

「香港國際編舞節」由合一空間主辦,始於2005年,本機構宗旨於本地及海外發展與製作藝術與療癒活動。合一空間的核心概念為:「協作」、「整合」、「協同」與「統一」,而「香港國際編舞節」亦承其基本,體現這些概念。我們的目標是以為跨媒介的啟迪項目、國際編舞節、工作坊和大師班,為青年及專業舞者提供一個無限制的學習平台。

我衷心感謝社會各界的支持,使「香港國際編舞節」於香港第四度成功舉辦。特別感謝上環文娛中心連年協助舉辦編舞節的演出,亦感謝城市當代舞蹈團 – CCDC舞蹈中心及其總監黃建宏先生的大力支持及贊助本節。
