Three dancers in white unitards, ballet shoes, and swim caps float in a triangular formation in mid-air against a lilac background. Two dancers are in the lower half—the dancer on the viewer's left has their torso horizontal with arms forming a circle over their head while the dancer on the right bends at the waist and looks downwards. The dancer in the upper half appears to kneel on one knee and one arm with the other limbs raised.

M+ Live Art x Hong Kong Ballet—Five Tiny Dances

To commemorate the opening of M+, Hong Kong’s new museum of visual culture, Hong Kong Ballet showcases Five Tiny Dances.

Five Tiny Dances will animate the newly-opened public spaces throughout M+ and enchant audiences of all ages through dynamic movement and rhythm. Highlights include excerpts from Hong Kong Ballet Choreographer-in-Residence Hu Song Wei Ricky’s The Lost Season, a highly physical meditation on our relationship with Earth and our responsibilities towards the environment. Accompanied by Max Richter's iconic reimagining of Vivaldi’s epic The Four Seasons, The Lost Season is a thought-provoking and ultimately uplifting experience that inspires audiences to be better stewards of the natural world. The other four pieces, choreographed by Jessica Burrows, Feng Jingyi, Li Lin, and Lin Chang-yuan Kyle, encompass timely environmental and climate change topics, which inspire us to take steps towards a better future.

Sign Language Interpretation will not available for this non-dialogue-based event.

In the centre, a man wearing a shirt with rolled-up sleeves and trousers sits on a bar stool. The dancers in the front row are seated on the floor at the entrance of the elevator. Some of the dancers behind are positioned on utility cases, stools, and ladders. Two figures in the back row off-centre stand on the rungs of a wooden ladder, which almost reaches the ceiling.
