FLÂNEUR

Presented as an extended performance of the exhibition Borrowed Scenery, André Chan and Jing Chin-yin Chong collaborate with choreographer Sarah Xiao to create a 30-minute outdoor performance Flâneur deliberately for the busy downtown Tsim Sha Tsui. The performance site is chosen based on the in-depth research by the curator. The name of "Tsim Sha Tsui" was documented in literature as early as during the Ming dynasty; it was also one of the flashpoints during the First Opium War. Subsequently, along with the reclamation in the 19th and 20th centuries, Tsim Sha Tsui gradually develops into a hotspot of commerce, tourism and shopping that draws abundant tourists. Locals, however, often feel both familiar and unfamiliar with this converging area.

The dancers will lead the audience to stroll around the different spots in the Tsim Sha Tsui area, where the audience can take a closer look at the urban landscape of Tsim Sha Tsui, ponder on the reasons behind the development and discover their unique rhythm in the performance.
