Amongst the crowds, rises a mini tent city...
Private Dances' international debut follows its two previous sell-out seasons in Melbourne, Australia (2010 and 2013). By the harbour at West Kowloon Waterfront Promenade and against the backdrop of Hong Kong's classic city scape, Private Dances Hong Kong Edition consisted of two diverse programs, one for day and one for night. The project featured live performances by Hong Kong based dance artists and experimental video works by Australian artists, all intimately housed in camping tents for between 1 - 8 audience members at a time.
