Sponsored by Aedas, Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation in collaboration with renowned New York site-specific choreographers Tom Pearson and Zach Morris of Third Rail Projects (TRP) to present “MY FOOTSTEPS”, a choreography development series this April.

MY FOOTSTEPS aims to engage students, performers and audiences by animating a series of sites through rigorous choreography and performance and unveiling layers of topographical information to deepen viewers relationships with public space. The creative process will be filmed and available as a teaching guide for participants to enable future site-specific endeavors.

The Bessie Award-winning artists of TRP will conduct five master classes with a group of local emerging choreographers and lead them through their unique process of creating site-specific movement works at a unique location in Hong Kong. The participating emerging choreographers will perform 15 minutes of finished work (of their own and with TRP) for an intimate audience on site. Selected choreographers will then conduct a one-day dance workshop for a group of local dance practitioners and encourage them to continue with the work.

20 chosen applicants will go through a five-day intensive dance workshop from 2pm to 9pm, April 19-23, 2010.

If you are a local (Hong Kong) emerging choreographer (age 18 or above) with a passion for dance and interest in experimenting with methods for creating site-specific performance, please
