NINE SONGS Will Be Performed By Hong Kong Dance Company Next Month

Nine Songs will be performed at Grand Theatre, Xiqu Centre, West Kowloon Cultural District. Performances run 26-28 November 2021.

Internationally renowned choreographer Helen Lai teams up with the A-list creative team in an exciting blend of breathtaking spectacle and powerful ritual. Inspired by the work of the great Chinese poet Qu Yuan and composer Tan Dun, Nine Songs evokes the legends of the 3rd century BC in contemporary contexts, fusing the specially composed score with emotion and images of nature behind the ancient spirits of sky, rivers and mountains, the souls of the dead and the unquenchable hopes of the living.

Since its premiere in 1991, Nine Songs has been re-run and toured numerous times to critical acclaim. This 30th anniversary celebration is not to be missed!
