First dance performance for babies in Hong Kong
B Free is the first dance performance designed for toddlers under 2.5
years old in Hong Kong. B Free is directed by Päivi Aura, the dancers
are Kati Lehtola and Hong Kong based Alice Ma and Mary Jane Tang. The
live music is by Tim Chan.
Background of the collaboration
The collaboration between CCDC Dance Centre (CCDCDC) and Auraco began when Auraco performed Me-Me and gave a workshop at CCDCDC’s children’s festival in 2015. CCDCDC invited Auraco’s choreographer Päivi Aura and dancer Kati Lehtola
to work with local artists in Hong Kong in 2016. A work-in-progress
performance was showcased after the residence in 2016. Now in
July-August 2018, Päivi and Kati return to Hong Kong, and B Free will be
presented at International Arts Carnival.
Coming up in the autumn: Mr. Kookaburra and Kukkaroo will visit east and west, Tuntu south! Read more in our next newsletter. Remember to follow our social media channels as well!
