Though dancing with grace in the swimming pool and stage acting in the theatre seem to be very different art forms, Wong Sze-yi, artistic swimmer, and Janice Poon, playwright and Dramaturg, found something in common – the “flow” of time. Time tells the demand for exact arrangements of rhythm, power and tension is just as profound whether dancing in the pool or acting on a stage.

The two artistic creators Wong Sze-yi and Janice Poon have jointly revisited their well-treaded experience to discover their artistic convergence in the flow of invisible time and space. During the lecture performance, they invite audience to discover their inner power and bring to light their potential.

  • In Cantonese, for approximately 40 minutes.
  • Suitable for ages 12 or above.
  • Free admission, registration required.
