Choreographer's Note | Xie Xin
The creative process for this piece has been very different compared to my past work. The logic of movement has always been significant in my previous works and so has the obsession with body parts. But in this collaboration with Poon Chun-ho, we hope that “the character dances in a context within the character itself”. This is where dance and drama are put together. There is one more layer of imagination to the character and its movement, through the addition of dramatising body movement. This is also the first time I have used props in my work.
Choreographer's Note | Poon Chun-ho
To me, artistic creation means the raising of questions, while relationships and communication have always been my obsessions.
There is nothing right or wrong in the artistic field. To avoid over-interpretation, do allow me to share some questions about ..after.… and to start our conversation with questions.
What is theatre?
What is dance?
..after…. what does that mean?
What is the difference between before and after?
What is love?
What is the form of love?
There’s always a moment?
I would also like to thank Hong Kong Arts Festival for all of their trust over the years, for the confidence and opportunities given to me to be able to share my life exploration with audiences through theatre and dance. The rehearsal process has been filled with laughter and tears, love and hate. I would also like to thank my partner Ms Xie Xin who has not only trusted me wholeheartedly, but has also been willing to explore the unknown together with me.
