UNITY SPACE AiR | HK x AUS

Unity Space collaborates with the Catapult Choreographic Hub and Artistic Director Cadi McCarthy to invite and bring together one artist based and working in Hong Kong and one artist based and working in Australia.

Working with the theme of IDENTITY this residency exchange seeks to bring together artists from different backgrounds (artistic and cultural) to collaborate, exchange and create a new production under the mentorship of Vangelis Legakis.

During 5 weeks (3 weeks HK period + 2 weeks AUS period), two dance artists KT Heikayau (HK) and Skip Willcox (AUS)  will be researching and creating a new work focusing on the topic of “IDENTITY”.

This presentation is a work in progress that will continue next year 2021 at Catapult Choreographic Hub: Newcastle, AUS, then thereafter the final production will be brought back to HK to be presented at the 5th HK International Choreography Festival (JUNE 2021).
