HKBU Dance Association wins championship and best choreography prize at Intra-Varsity Dance Competition

浸大舞蹈學會勇奪全港大專聯校舞蹈邀請賽冠軍及最佳排舞師獎

The HKBU Dance Association recently won the championship and the award for best choreography at the Intra-Varsity Dance Competition 2013-14.

Through their piece entitled The City of Fading Light, the 22-student HKBU team tried to express a phenomenon in Hong Kong today – some people want to leave Hong Kong, but because of their precious memories in the city, they have no choice but to stay. What is their future under these circumstances?

The first part of the performance showed citizens trying to voice their opinion in order to improve the environment in Hong Kong. Unfortunately, no one paid attention to their opinion.

In the second part, the dance expressed the anger of the citizens whose voices were neglected. The citizens attempted to hold a revolution.

The third part was about the citizens' desire to leave Hong Kong. Unfortunately, owing to their unforgettable memories in the city, they failed to do so and were left with an uncertain future.

Ken Leung, Internal Vice President and team member of the Association, said: “The City of Fading Light conveys meaningful message. It reminds us, and all Hong Kong people, to pay attention to the changes in our society, and that we can help our city if we are willing to do so.” The team thanked their coach Mr Billy Chan and choreographer Mr Yip Chan for preparing the team to perform the meaningful dance piece.

浸大舞蹈學會共22位隊員憑著參賽舞蹈《褪色的城市》,於「全港大專聯校舞蹈邀請賽2013-14」中奪得冠軍及最佳排舞師獎兩項大獎。

浸大隊員希望透過舞蹈表達現今香港一種現象——有些人希望離開香港,卻又因為在此擁有珍貴的回憶而不捨離去,唯有選擇留下來。在這情況下,他們的將來會怎樣﹖

舞蹈的第一部分表達了很多居民為了改善本港的環境而紛紛發表意見。然而,沒有人在意他們的意見。因居民的意見不受重視,舞蹈的第二部分表現出他們的憤怒,並嘗試作出改革。舞蹈的第三部分表達了居民很想離開香港。但是,對此地的難忘回憶令他們不捨離開,甚至未知將來何去何從。

舞蹈學會內務副主席兼隊員梁子傑同學說﹕「《褪色的城市》的概念很有意義,它提醒了我們和所有香港人察覺身處的城市的轉變,而且,只要願意出一分力,我們也可改善社會的現狀。」隊伍亦衷心感謝教練陳紹傑先生及排舞師陳穎業先生的精心舞蹈編排,讓他們演繹出這一支富有意義的舞蹈。
