Hung Dance Website

In 2017, choreographer Lai Hung-Chung founded Hung Dance, with the name Hung symbolizing the spirit of soaring freedom. Born from an unapologetic desire for flight, Birdy weaves Western mythology and Eastern traditions through stunning contemporary dance, challenging restriction through graceful movements and striking symbolism. A poetic response to whether “every free flight is born from a restriction,” the work explores life and nations’ unsteady skies. This poetic journey of individual and collective soaring confronts contemporary issues while transforming feathers into wings.

“…magnificently textured style, which shifts from earthy, raw-powered movement to jumps that send dancers sailing into the air like spirits.”
