Ever wonder what a modern makeover of Chinese traditional folk art is like? Hong Kong Dance Company will collaborate with Yat Po Singers, a local a cappella group, to deliver a creative remaking of the most vibrant, ecstatic Chinese folk songs and dances. In Voices and Dances of the Distant Land, Yat Po Singers will render a collection of widely loved folk songs into choral music, airing their melodic beauty and idyllic spirit with the magic of voices. What’s more, you will find — alongside the hilarious performance of the singers — an ingenious variation of these songs mixed with latter-day music genres like pop, rock, and jazz, which lend a distinctive modern flavor to traditional songs and dances. Let’s take this modern ride to the heaven on earth: follow our voices and our dancing steps, move into the realms of romance, folklore and the ode to life, and roam freely about the rural ethnic China. Let our voices and dances lead you to the idyllic distant land.
