Hong Kong is never short of circus talents. In New Boom In Circus, we are to discover local circus artists with unique potential – instead of performing on the streets and in shopping malls, this time they are invited to come to Tai Kwun for theatre productions and experience a brand new performing experience.
This year, New Boom In Circus will have two performance groups to stage 20-30 minutes of contemporary circus works respectively.
Patrick Pun, a dance and circus artist who completed his study at the Belgian circus school École Supérieure des Arts du Cirque, joins forces with two circus artists that he encountered in Belgium to create How Did You Know? – with a nonsensical tune, the three persons with three juggling objects will give the audience a glimpse of the expected and the unexpected in juggling, deconstructing the relationship and expectations of objects and body measurements in juggling tricks.
The local arts group Circus Box presents Spin with the Wind – it tells the stories of four members of the CBO Juggling Team (Wayne Lee, Jeff Tse, Tong Ting, Jason Ngan) who create their own tricks of plate spinning, diabolo and somersault with an easy grace, like merging with each other in the wind.
