The Macao Cultural Centre is present Pulsating Morphosis, an avant-garde dance piece by local choreographer Keith Lao that will hit CCM’s Small Auditorium on September 24 and 25, 2021. A vibrant group of local and Guangdong dancers will premiere Keith Lao’s vision of Macau, portraying the city in three dimensions, reinventing it in different forms. The young choreographer has devised the programme as the final stage of CCM’s cultural exchange project mentored by Germany trained, Beijing based, Sang Jijia and the HK City Contemporary Dance Company.
From the skyline and crowded pavements to narrow streets, traffic lights and the uniqueness of the city’s odours, Pulsating Morphosis merges the aesthetics of human movement with a sprinkle of technology. Edging further the sensorial dimension of his work, Keith brought along the experimental Hong Kong sound artist Dickson Dee and challenged local visual designer O Chi Wai to develop the imagery of this maverick new venture.
Having lived numerous performing and creative experiences throughout a short yet consistent career, Keith Lao collaborated in various projects, at times with renowned choreographers from distant latitudes, like when he joined a programme hosted by international contemporary dance masters William Forsythe and Leigh Warren. Besides, Keith has also been part of an educational project mentored by the world acclaimed Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan.
