Exhibiting Theatre “Body Codes II: Performscape”
25 June - 27 June
Staging at the Jockey Club Black Box Theatre, Body Codes II: Performscape is the inaugural performance of new performing arts company, Common Ground. Founded by contemporary dancer Kenny Leung, actor Anson Chan, and street dancer Rain Chan during pandemic times this year, the company was formed to create a shared platform for performers and produce cross-disciplinary works that experiment with alternative forms of theatre.
Coined “exhibiting theatre”, the production introduces a new form of theatre, integrating the concept of black box and white cube to create an unprecedented way of seeing and performing. The show features the solo works of three choreographers, Blue Ka Wing, Kenny Leung, Ivan Chan, and three actors Anson Chan, Kwok Chui-yi and Benny Mok, who try to regain their pace and reconnect with the audience given the challenges of pandemic times in Hong Kong.
Unlike conventional theatrical shows, the audience are invited to take up an active role by deciding their own pace and viewing distance to enjoy the arts.
