香港舞蹈團兩位舞蹈員 獲資助負笈海外交流觀摩

香港舞蹈團首席舞蹈員潘翎娟及舞蹈員蔡琬安獲招商局慈善基金會贊助,到海外交流觀摩,進一步提升藝術造詣和擴展國際視野;並於回港後舉行分享會,與其他藝術人員分享得著和經驗。

潘翎娟在去年十二月至今年月,赴美國紐約修讀Gibney Dance冬季舞蹈訓練營以及Steps on Broadway百老滙舞蹈自由選修課程,研修多種不同的舞蹈與來自世界各地的表演藝術家切磋交流蔡琬安則於去年九至十月赴韓國,分別在韓國藝術綜合大學及國立國樂院研修各種韓國傳統舞蹈,涉獵的包括長鼓舞、太平舞、扇舞、長絲巾舞等,參加歐洲前衛藝術家Pietro Marullo的工作坊《物件與身體》,更當地著名舞蹈室One Million Dance Studio挑戰全球大熱的K-pop

除了返學,她們亦觀摩了很多文化藝術活動,參觀博物館和展覽,孕新的靈。身處紐約潘翎娟了多個演出,除了百老匯名劇《冰雪奇緣》、《漢米爾頓》、《歌劇魅影》,亦觀摩了國際知名藝團的新創作,包括荷蘭舞蹈劇場IIBatsheva Dance CompanyMalpaso Dance Company的演出當然也少不了外百老匯的小劇場實驗作品;而紐約各大知名博物館、藝術館更讓她目不暇給

蔡琬安除了欣賞不同的韓國傳統舞蹈演出,也觀摩了SIDance首爾國際舞蹈節和阿根廷極限表演《Fuerza Bruta Wayra》,以及參觀了不同的博物館和世遺級歷史遺跡體驗到韓國舞和中國舞的分別:「中國舞體態相對正立﹔韓國舞則向前收縮,步法較為簡單,沒有大幅度腿功,講求腳踝的控制,要用呼吸去帶動動作,氣息一直延伸到末梢,似是水蒸汽散發空氣中,而舞蹈感覺含蓄端莊。」K-pop則是一個跳出安舒區的新嘗試,從零開始的學習。

文化差異驅使兩位舞蹈員放開懷抱接受新事物。潘翎娟在紐約看到了生存的不易,看到了社會的許多層面,令更加珍惜自己所擁有的一切。在不同的文化當中,更要欣賞和包容與自己價值觀不同、意見不同的人。」跨越國界的文化探索,為兩位舞蹈員帶來新的啓發和靈感,在發展藝術事業更上一層樓!

Two Hong Kong Dance Company dancers went on sponsored study trips

Sponsored by the China Merchants Charitable Foundation, Hong Kong Dance Company’s Principal Dancer Laura Pan Lingjuan and Dancer Yvonne Tsoi Yuen-on went on overseas study trips to New York and Seoul respectively from late 2018 to early 2019.

Laura enrolled in Gibney Dance Company’s NYC Winter Study and Steps on Broadway’s professional classes, exploring different dance genres alongside top-notch performers from the world over. While in Seoul, Yvonne studied a wide variety of traditional dances at Korea National University of Arts, tried out K-pop at One Million Dance Studio and attended an experimental workshop “Objects and Body” given by European artist Pietro Marullo.

Besides taking dance classes, they also attended many performances and visited exhibitions and museums. In New York, Laura picked a number of Broadway’s recent hits such as Hamilton and Frozen, without missing out must-see classics like The Phantom of the Opera. She also attended dance performances by Nederlands Dans Theater 2, Batsheva Dance Company and Malpaso Dance Company, as well as a handful of off-broadway theatre productions.

Yvonne attended several Korean traditional arts performances as well as cutting-edge presentations in the SIDance Festival like Border Tales by Protein Dance Company. She was also blown away by the immersive “theatre party” Fuerza Bruta Wayra.

After their trips, other artistic staff in the Company also benefited from their enlightening experiences in a sharing session.
