i-Dance Festival (HK) was first organised by a group of independent contemporary dance artists in 2004. Y-Space took over the festival in 2009. Taiwan, South Korea and Japan have also founded their own i-Dance Festivals in 2011, 2012 and 2013 respectively, forming an i-Dance Festival network in Asia.

This year’s i-Dance Festival (HK) is not as large-scale as the previous ones due to lack of resources. We would like to focus on the theme of Research, Development and Archives in response to the live issues and needs of Hong Kong dance industry in order to raise Hongkongers’ awareness of the status quo of dance research, development and recorded information management in the city and explore the future of the local dance world together!

Dance, Multi-media and Improvisation Research Week

diver

Local and overseas artists spend days on artistic exchange and exploring dance improvisation, senses, body, movement and the relationship between individuals and groups. Engaging in different art forms, participants will be able to broaden their horizons and inspire each other in discussions and interactions.

The whole Research Week will conclude with an improvisatory theatre performance Improvisation Land by multi-media artists and be documented in text, photos and videos for further reference in the future.

Conference: Research Studies in Dance and Dance Archives in Hong Kong

Hong Kong is a cosmopolitan city with a relatively short history of dance. How is our relevant recorded information management compared to other regions? Without enough archives, how can we study and recreate the time art?

It is difficult for the local academy to maintain its status on the global stage and unhealthy for the development of Hong Kong Dance in the long run when the research findings on dance remain inadequate and unpublished. This year’s i-Dance Festival (HK) Conference might stimulate discussion and provide a prospective.
