Revealing the epilogue at the beginning, Bolero unveils the chain of events that give rise to its end. Hong Kong Ballet dancers Yuh Egami and Ricky Hu chose a dramatic representation to deliver the story of a woman’s inner demons which personify the struggles that are often caused by the pressures of today.
Deep and insightful, this work enters the blurred, almost non-existent, space between light and shadow, stability and instability. Set to Maurice Ravel’s famous score of the same name, the uniqueness of this “Bolero” lies not only in the choreographic and musical structure of the work, but also in its theatrical design created in collaboration with the choreographers’ vision.
