“If Hong Kong funnyman Stephen Chow were a dancer, he might have been like this compatriot Dick Wong.” The Straits Times
The Self and The Other Series #1
B.O.B.* The Final Cut
Both B.O.B.* The Final Cut, and B.O.B.* The Rough Cut evolved from a piece titled B.O.B.*, commissioned by Hong Kong Arts Festival in 2004. B.O.B.* is a dance piece with no designed costume, no music and no lighting design, but only three dancers, two microphones and a chair, and yet in the past 12 years, it has received a total of 14 international invitations. This may indicate that the soul of a work lies in the concepts and ideas, and a flexible structure could accommodate the additional participation of local dancers from different places, enabling the work for one more level of exchange.
B.O.B.* is Body Oh Body, and the “*” indicates annotation. The body is a mirror, and you can see both you and me there, as well as our imagination, misunderstandings, and wishful thinking for each other.
The performance starts with a pose, and develops gradually drawing in language, memories, interpretations, commentary and cultural differences.
Developed from B.O.B*, commissioned by Hong Kong Arts Festival in 2004.
