Stillness in the Wave
This sublime documentary captures the reform initiatives of one of the most established dance companies in Hong Kong. The company has set sail to re-evaluate its artistic essence by adopting a new philosophy. It also wants to integrate new physical disciplines, by picking up different cultural traces, meditation and Chinese martial arts. Tag along on this uncertain journey, as company members unveil their fear, their self-questioning and their findings in the quest of refining their dance forms and carrying out training to embody their cultural roots.
