Product Description

This project focuses on the “pre-professionalisation era” of Hong Kong dance from the 1950s to the 1970s as the main time frame of the research. The two researchers conducted interviews in Hong Kong, the US and Canada with ten pioneers who were active in Hong Kong dance between the 1950s and 1970s, and recorded and organised the information. We hope to derive different perspectives from these pioneers’ memories, and, in the form of oral history that embodies a personal touch, construct a body of historical materials regarding the early development of Hong Kong dance.
