HONG KONG — Night Market is a series of short dance films that celebrates cultural diversity and questions how people see, create and discover their own cultural identities from the artists’ perspectives as “Third Culture Kids” (TCKs).
TCKs are people who have spent a significant part of their developmental years outside their parents’ culture. Night Market is choreographed and directed by Kelsey Ang and created in collaboration with Sandrayati Fay, Celine Chai, Justin Tang, Lauren Ho, Jeffrey Han, and Bolun Wei. The films also include sound by Harry Septiandry (Midnight Runners) and David Karagianis.
This international collaboration between dance, music and film artists draws on the collaborators’ roots in Hong Kong, Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, China, Los Angeles, Norway Ireland, and Iceland, integrating western contemporary dance movement, city sounds, remixed Cantonese disco music, and songs inspired by Southeast Asian upbringings.
Presented by the Along the Edge Arts Festival, Night Market will be available for free online viewing May 12–16 at http://alongtheedgefestival.
The series consists of 4 short works:
