Work

Pardon

“There is a choice to be made: to escape it or to face it. Is it me or the choice that remained stubborn?”

Having presented a stunning and impressive performance in Reaction at the 2014 Hong Kong Arts Festival (HKAF), Wong choreographs and performs in the new work Pardon which was featured in 2015 HKAF. In Pardon, she was hailed as a “powerhouse onstage” by Huffington Post.  The dance piece opens at the end of a lovers’ quarrel, with Wong and her dance partner dancing to a moody and minimalist score by Rafael Anton Irisarri.

"Pardon" was commissioned and premiered at the 2015 Hong Kong Arts Festival
