**********************************************************

     The local dance company Y-Space will stage its 20th anniversary production, entitled "On & On & Turn Turn Turn", in May.

     "On & On & Turn Turn Turn" will feature not only a new dance piece, but also a retrospective of the company's classics throughout its history in one go, including the inaugural production "None of Your Business" (1995), "Not a Double Room" (1996), "Unconscious" (1997), "Dance 'In' Possible I, II, III" (1999 and 2000), "Air and Breath I & II" (2000 to 2008), "Re/evolution" (2010), "Body, ID & Space I íV IV" (2005 to 2011) and "Improvisation Land" (since 1998). The production will showcase Y-Space's creative journey of 20 years through revising and creating new choreography for excerpts from these works, and will incorporate video projection and installations.

     The production is choreographed by Victor Ma and Mandy Yim, who will perform as well, while Les Fong and Edmund Leung are composers and musicians and Tsang Man-tung is the set designer. The star-studded cast also includes Hugh Cho, Christine He, Flora Hon, Lam Po, Lei Yan, Lian Guodong, Henry Shum and Katie Yau.

     Y-Space was established by Victor Ma and Mandy Yim in 1995. The company aims at exploring the infinite possibilities of performance through dance and searching for new dance languages and ways of performing. Throughout the 20 years of its establishment, Y-Space has been dedicated to becoming a dance group with an international vision while remaining rooted in local culture. Its works have been presented in both major platforms and fringe spaces in Hong Kong and internationally. Y-Space has cultivated spaces for creativity in the local community and schools, and has a loyal public following. International invitations and tours have taken Y-Space to 20 cities in 13 countries.
