Ivy Tsui Yik-chit
Ivy Tsui Yik-chit believes that everyone has an innate ability to dance. Through encounters and experimentation, by embracing the beauty of diversity and sharing stories in everyday settings, she aspires to use movement and dance to explore life and connect with the community.
In 2018, her biographical piece QuanQuan (2012), which she has performed in cafe-bookstores and libraries in Estonia, Sweden, and Canada, was recognized as Pick of the Fringe at the Stockholm Fringe Awards.
In the same year, her durational happening Used to Mud (2017) was presented at the Southbank Centre, London as part of the China Changing Festival.
After receiving an Award for Young Artist (Dance) at the 2015 Hong Kong Arts Development Awards, Ivy was offered a number of creative opportunities. Her choreographic works include the Hong Kong Arts Festival and Hong Kong Leisure and Cultural Services Department commissions Water Lilies (2017), Morning Glory (2016), Dehydrated Flower (2015), Frangipani (2015), a floral series about the energy of life.
In addition to taking part in Creative Meeting Point invited by Hong Kong West Kowloon Cultural District, Ivy has also participated in a few other exchange programs and research laboratories to further her never-ending process of building connections.
