  • The Self and The Other Series

    The Self and The Other Series is a collection of theatre works by Dick Wong. From 2004 onwards till now, his works have been staged in different cities in Asia and Europe, from Bangkok, Tokyo, Taipei to Paris, London and Berlin. They could be summed up as reference and cross reference of questioning the self and the other. To him, dance is more context than form; and theatre is a mirror in which the creator, performer and spectator see himself or herself. Four of his works will be included in this series of The Self and The Other, and they are B.O.B.* The Final Cut (2005), 1+1 (2009), The Rite of Spring (2016), and his latest work, The Rite of Spring – Solo Version (2018), which was just completed earlier this year.

    Zuni Icosahedron’s Rite of Spring – Stravinsky in hoodies
    14-11-2016 South China Morning Post

    The Studio Theatre stage has been transformed into a box with three walls, black and blank on either side while the third is a cinema screen. The piece opens with a video of Wong on the screen in massive close-up, seated at a table with a glass of water and an ashtray. The real Wong stands in the middle of the stage below, dwarfed by his projected self.

    This is one of Wong’s most effective works, combining intriguing ideas with impressive dancing by Wong, , Cheng Wai-pan, So Lok-kin and Jonathan Hung Chun-lok and outstanding visuals, notably Zoe Cheung’s lighting design.

  • Introduction

    "The music is so powerful, and the desire is so dominating.
    A cruel ritual, a combat between the flesh and the will,
    one is split into two, two is split into four, and the self is torn into pieces."

    The Self and The Other Series #3
    The Rite Of Spring

    The origin of dance is sacrificial rituals. In order to communicate with the spirit for blessing and guidance, ancient tribes would put the body into a state of trance by various means. Is creating dance with the body as a tool a kind of sacrificial rite ? Is the spirit of inspiration somehow related to the spirit of deity ?  What kind of spiritual state is it in the going back and forth of sense and sensibility in judgement during rehearsal ? In the creative development of The Rite of Spring, I could not feel the presence of any deity. All I could see and feel throughout the entire process was me, myself.
