KIWI CHAN  | Artistic Director

An independent artist and creative producer, whom creations focus on Butoh, experimental theatre, and site-specific dance. Graduated from Inter-cultural studies (MA) of The Hong Kong Chinese University in 2013.

 

Creations are both my passion and struggle, crave to explore various possibilities. I enjoy the dilemma of body, Butoh and Contact Improvisation have been my biggest inspiration since 2012. Butoh is not only a dance form but a philosophy. Being an indie Butoh artist, my concern is about metamorphosis, what I want to seek is “somatic resonance”. I devote myself to contemporary theatre, as I believe that performing art is the best field for sharing the presence.

Previous mining: 

- 10 years theatre making experience

- Found 3 performing arts units with friends

- 7 years independent project management experience 

- 5 years public arts organisation work experience

- 3 years associate degree arts & humanities programme teaching experience

畢業於香港中文大學文化研究系碩士,現為自由身創作人,涉足舞踏、實驗劇場及環境舞蹈。除了創作,亦備有藝術行政、製作及策劃經驗。 

 

創作於我從來也不是一件輕鬆的事,卻是一件讓我自在的事。我喜歡探索形體之中的可能與不可能,所以舞踏及接觸即興從2012年起成為我創作的主軸。舞踏不止是一支舞作,更似是一套哲思。作為一個不入流的舞踏藝人,我作品的核心是關於蛻變,透過肢體的律動去帶動感知。我投身當代劇場,因為我相信表演藝術是分享存有的最好場域。

喜歡另類的美,鐘愛不完美的人。在苦苦經營的小日子裏堅持做一點點的創作。期望有天可以整理一套屬於自身、此時此地的身體語言,好好書寫一個當代的故事。
