About

Convergence is a culminating work created through an interdisciplinary research study of both Chinese dance and Chinese martial arts traditions. Hong Kong Dance Company Artistic Director Yang Yuntao and a group of dancers have collaborated with kung fu masters of the Southern style since 2018. The partnership has yielded a deep awareness of the essence of Chinese martial arts which, as adapted by the research team, allows for a more profound understanding of the relationship between the sensorial body, the fluidity of movement it creates, and East Asian philosophies in the creation and performance of dance. Convergence made its online debut in 2020 and was taken to various cities. In 2023, it returned to Hong Kong, showcasing its first local premiere as a live performance. The excerpt Whispers of the Pines from Convergence was recognised in the 13th China Dance Lotus Awards (for Contemporary Dance), the most prestigious national dance awards in China.


動靜無邊

以最純粹的狀態,打開武術之門。

歸零、汲取、轉化,為舞蹈創作與身體帶來新的思考與突破。

舞蹈藝術家通過學習和探索武術,打破固有的肢體運動模式,以當代思維解構、重組、形構舞與武的元素。《凝》捕捉舞者處於舞蹈和武術之間而忘卻形體的一瞬,呈現形神極致之美,其動作構想別樹一格,時而蒼勁,時而婉約,韻味悠長,展現的身法、步法、手法靈巧但穩健,塑造出豐富的舞動質感。

Infinity of Movement and Stillness

Breathing new life into artistic creation and dance movements by revealing the authenticity of Chinese martial arts.

In Hong Kong Dance Company's long-term study, its artists have explored the essence of both traditional practices, extracting new perspectives on movement and the fluidity of expression between ideology and physical gesture. Convergence brings these discoveries together, capturing the transient between stillness and motion, tranquility and exuberance; all that one may find through the synergy of dance and martial arts.
