The gaze of Hong Kong’s art and culture scene has turned eastwards this month thanks to Freespace at Taikoo Place, which launched on Thursday 26 October and runs until Sunday 5 November.
The collaboration between Swire Properties and West Kowloon Cultural District Authority (WKCDA) is currently immersing Hong Kong residents and art lovers in a host of hand-picked performances ranging from music concerts to contemporary dance performances and avant-garde theatre productions.
Freespace at Taikoo Place has brought together local, regional and international artists to showcase contemporary and cross-disciplinary art forms for Hong Kongers from all walks of life, introducing new art forms, encouraging creativity in everyday life, and generating a discovery of community and place. Performances are taking place throughout the day in multiple spaces including ArtisTree, Taikoo Park, Mr and Mrs Fox and the office lobbies within the Taikoo Place community.
The diverse programme includes the Asia premiere of choreographer Antony Hamilton and dancer Alisdair Macindoe’s immersive MEETING, which will see the two dancers take over ArtisTree with their unique language of movement and 64 robotic percussion instruments created by Macindoe. Another highlight is the critically acclaimed production, small metal objects by Back to Back Theatre, an ingenious theatrical gem which unfolds amid the pedestrian traffic of Taikoo Place. The audience watches from a raised seating bank with individual sets of headphones that wire them in to an intensely personal drama being played out somewhere in the crowd.
