The 4th Hong Kong Choreography Festival (HKICF) will be held on 27-29 June 2019, 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.
The (HKICF) Hong Kong International Choreography Festival 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 4th 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.
