In 2023, Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels co-presents, with French May Arts Festival and The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, a three-week residency in Hong Kong lead by choreographer Christian Rizzo.
After a first workshop led remotely from Paris in 2022 with dancers from Hong Kong, Christian Rizzo embarks on a three-week residency at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts this year. This serves as an opportunity for the choreographer to continue the dialogue that started two years ago about the Hong Kong choreographic scene. During these three weeks, Rizzo proposes a choreographic creation process echoing to Sophie Laly’s video work. They invite and accompany local dancers in an individual and collective creative research, which culminates in a final public presentation that fuses visual art and choreographic elements.
This program is organized in partnership with The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.
