Acclaimed local choreographers collaborate for "Yin Yu Chun Fai" performances in October
     Four acclaimed local choreographers are collaborating for the dance programme "Yin Yu Chun Fai" to be presented in October. The performances form part of the celebration events to mark the 30th anniversary of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre (HKCC).
     Comprising Mui Cheuk-yin, Yuri Ng, Daniel Yeung and Dick Wong, the quartet have witnessed the development of the HKCC over the past 30 years together with different generations of dancers. They will bring together four distinguished choreographic works that are more than just expressions of the memorable experiences in their lives.
     Mui Cheuk-yin emerged as one of Hong Kong's first generation of professional dancers and was the leading dancer in numerous dance drama productions of the Hong Kong Dance Company in the 1980s. She has performed in the 25th and 35th anniversaries of Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch in Germany, the Lyon Biennale de la Danse, the International Festival of Contemporary Dance in Venice and the Dance Biennale Tokyo and on major stages around the world.
     Yuri Ng was awarded the Adeline Genée Gold Medal from the United Kingdom's Royal Academy of Dance in 1983 before joining the National Ballet of Canada as a dancer. Since his return to Asia in 1993, Ng has choreographed for various performing companies and organisations. He was awarded a Prix d'Auteur at the 6th Rencontres Chorégraphiques Internationales de Seine-St-Denis in France with his choreography for "Boy Story".
     Daniel Yeung is a self-taught dancer and was twice awarded scholarships to study choreography in Holland and the United Kingdom. In 2002, he was nominated by the European Ballettanz yearbook as "The Choreographer to Look At". In 2013, Yeung was the winner of the Award for Best Artist (Dance) by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council for his contributions as curator, choreographer, performer, teacher and critic for developing dance culture in Hong Kong.
     A graduate of journalism, Dick Wong created "1+1" in Tokyo in 2009 and the piece was later invited by the Kobe International Dance Festival and the Cartier Foundation in Paris for performance. In 2010, he was selected as the laureate of the International Residence programme at Récollets in Paris.
     "Yin Yu Chun Fai" is presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department. It will be staged at 8pm on October 11 and 12 (Friday and Saturday) and at 3pm on October 12 and 13 (Saturday and Sunday) at the HKCC’s Studio Theatre.
