Hong Kong Dance Company Announces Inaugural Site-Specific Performance at Hullett House/1881 Heritage

Hong Kong Dance Company (HKDC) is back not only with its award-winning dance drama, but its very first site-specific performance at the heritage hotel, Hullett House, and historical and cultural landmark, 1881 Heritage, on May 13 (Saturday). The Company will liven up the heritage site with a touch of poetry that defines its popular dance pieces. With the bustling Tsim Sha Tsui as its backdrop, the star-crossed lovers in L'Amour Immortel will come to life, dancing to the reminiscent melody of the theme song from the classic movie A Chinese Ghost Story. Commencing at the Grand Piazza and the upper terrace of 1881 Heritage, the dancers will waltz their way up to the Parlour at Hullett House, along the corridor of St. George fine dining restaurant and the tranquil Loong Toh Yuen courtyard. After the exciting performance, the audience will have the opportunity to get up close with HKDC dancers, followed by an exclusive dinner buffet hosted by Hullett House. This performance lifts the curtain on the Company's collaboration with Hong Kong's oldest heritage sites, Hullet House and 1881 Heritage, and sets the mood for an eventful Mother's Day!

Winner of three Hong Kong Dance Awards 2016, including Outstanding Performance by a Female Dancer, Outstanding Performance by a Male Dancer and Outstanding Set Design for Dance, L'Amour Immortel is a captivating adaptation of Hong Kong film icon Tsui Hark's A Chinese Ghost Story. The rerun of L'Amour Immotel will be shown at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre from 9 to 11 June 2017. It follows the story of a bewitching ghost and good-natured scholar, and their fight against the evil forces to save their love. Gripping and poignant, this new interpretation in dance is sure to thrill audiences by celebrating the beauty of humanity.

Hullett House is a celebration of Hong Kong's rich and vibrant "East meets West" heritage. The design-led heritage building consists of an intimate hotel and seven restaurants and bars. The property and its various elements are all housed within one of the oldest buildings located in the heart of Hong Kong, dating back to 1881, and is a rare example of magnificent colonial architecture.

1881 Heritage is located in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui, the Former Marine Police Headquarters have been rejuvenated and re-integrated into the urban fabric of the surrounding area. The 120 year-old historical development has been revitalized and transformed into a cultural and shopping landmark in Hong Kong - "1881 Heritage".

Following extensive renovation and conservation works by Cheung Kong Property Holdings Limited, "1881 Heritage" now features luxury shops, fine dining establishments and hip bars, a heritage hotel, and a Heritage Hall which allows visitors to discover the history of the site.
