Choreography Through Collaboration: Jo Tomalin talks to Award-Winning Choreographer Victor Fung and his Dancers about the Company and From the Top
Choreographing collaboratively with dancers is an organic way to create new work. Jo Tomalin talks to award-winning choreographer from Hong Kong, Victor Fung, Artistic Director and Choreographer of Victor Fung Dance, and dancers from his company about From the Top.
“From the Top is a witty contemporary dance work that explores the power relations between performers and dance makers. The piece presents to the audience a fictional scenario based on the everyday life of dance artists and looks at the absurd nature of artistic integrity and what it means to make art. Action on stage is juxtaposed with voice-overs and surtitles to reveal the politics between the ever-demanding choreographer and dancers who continuously attempt to fulfil a choreographer’s artistic vision.”
