Chinachem Group Celebrates French May

2 May - 10 June

EVENT DESCRIPTION

Chinachem Group is partnering with French May Arts Festival for the fourth consecutive year. From now until 10 June, Chinachem is promoting French culture at its Central Market and NINA MALL, and for the first time ever, holding a variety of programmes for the Festival at D·PARK and Nina Park. These programmes include sustainability-related contemporary dance performances and workshops, as well as French GourMay Markets showcasing French delicacies and fine wines, infusing the city with an air of French lifestyle, culture and arts.

Co-presented with French GourMay, the ever-popular French GourMay Markets at Central Market and NINA MALL will feature an array of delicacies from the Occitanie region of southern France and fun happenings. French GourMay menus will also be available at selected restaurants of Nina Hospitality, enabling foodies to dazzle their palates with a taste of the South of France.

In addition, French contemporary dance company KHAM will showcase their globally-toured creation, Intrusion Chorégraphique, at Central Market, D·PARK, NINA MALL and Nina Park to engage the local communities through interactive performances and dance workshops. Based in southern France, KHAM was created in 2011 at the initiative of the Lao-French choreographer Olé Khamchanla. The company’s artistic works have been developed through contemporary choreographic creations combining hip-hop and traditional dances from Southeast Asia. Dancers of KHAM will make use of the surrounding environment in this site-specific contemporary dance while echoing the theme of sustainability. To further immerse the community in creative experiences, several dance workshops will be held by KHAM at Chinachem’s Central Market, D·PARK and Nina Park.

A series of dance workshops will also be organised for schools and community groups, with children invited from French International School and Caritas Tsuen Wan Our Common Home to experience the fun of contemporary dance with the guidance of KHAM. After the workshops, the children will be led by the KHAM dancers to stage a community dance performance at NINA MALL, further connecting with the community while creating positive energy for society.
