Ergao: Kung Hei Fat Choy

16 November 2021 - 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm



An autobiographical dance theatre reflection on family, nostalgia and homesickness

Presented as part of City Contemporary Dance Festival, and Freespace’s 2021 CCDC in Residence programme, Kung Hei Fat Choy is a multimedia, genre-bending, dance theatre performance that creates an intimate space for personal recollections and candid sharing.

Since his childhood in Guangzhou in the 1980s, mainland dancer Ergao’s life has taken him on a very different path to that of his parents. In this autobiographical production, Ergao daydreams nostalgically over a solitary rice-cooker hotpot for one, reflecting on his relationship with his father and his hometown through home videos, musical memories and recollections. A story of a life, a story of changing times, changing landscapes, shared memories and reconciliation, Kung Hei Fat Choy is a quirky, touching exploration of home, identity, family ties and belonging.

Kung Hei Fat Choy premiered in Switzerland in 2019 and was performed at the Guangdong Times Museum the same year.
