The world is like a huge film studio. Living in an era flooded by the ocean of information and camera lenses, surveillance is ubiquitous, and virtual screens are like high walls. Co-created by CCDC resident choreographer Sang Jijia and award-winning playwright Janice Poon, screendance version of Mr Blank is a dance theatre experience that boldly challenges the use of surveillance cameras in our everyday lives.

Partnering with Freespace of West Kowloon Cultural District, Mr Blank is one of the programmes of “CCDC in Residence”. The stage was set up as a confined space enclosed on all sides and recorded with multiple cameras. Dancers are filmed on-site from different angles. Audience will reflect on the myths of various surveillance and access of personal data that they face daily.

Mr Blank contains a small amount of dialogue in Cantonese without surtitles.
Duration: Approximately 1 hour
