In 2023, Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels co-presents with French May Arts Festival Les Traceurs by Rachid Ouramdane, as part of a Dance Festival in Hong Kong.
With Les Traceurs, air artists (flyers, acrobats…) and celestial athletes (highliners, climbers…) are challenged to perform high above the ground on exceptional locations – whether in a natural or an urban environment. Beyond its utterly spectacular nature, the guiding line consists of making the sensitive appropriateness of such enterprises salient, to change the perception of these locations where the action takes place and to reveal the intimate relationship of each personality with his or her practice. Ever since 2020, several performances were produced in France (Grenoble, Annecy, Aussois, Paris) and abroad (Italy, Brazil).
The choreographer Rachid Ouramdane will be leading an exclusive aerial choreography workshop on May 18 at the Xiqu Center, studio 1. A good level of dance would be required.
