Phygital D: Tsang Tsui-shan – Chroma 11

Combining installation, film and virtual reality; Chroma 11, co-presented with Freespace, and co-created by Hong Kong Arts Centre ifva and Hong Kong filmmaker Tsang Tsui-shan, documents a magical tale of artistic collaboration and an otherworldy lovers’ reunion after heart-wrenching loss.

The immersive, interactive experience guides the audience through the intimate creative world of the partnership between dance duo Ix Wong Thien-pau (Malaysia) and Aaron Khek Ah-hock (Singapore). Blurring the boundaries between reality and memory, and using archival material and virtual technology to bridge the divide that separates souls when a loved one departs too soon, Chroma 11 is a poignant reflection on the enduring nature of human connections.

The event is an extension of true story of Ix and Hock told in Tsang Tsui-shan’s award-winning dance short film Ward 11 (2019) that documents the duo’s life and work before and during the final stages of Hock’s life. The dance in the film is choreographed by Ix Wong Thien-pau.

Chroma 11 is the first Hong Kong project selected in Biennale College Cinema – Virtual Reality organised by La Biennale di Venezia.

As part of "Phygital D", Chroma 11 will meet the audience at Freespace, West Kowloon Cultural District in September 2022. For details and ticket information, please click here.
