1. Dance: Pa | Ethos
Acclaimed Tibetan choreographer San Jijia’s dance production will have its Hong Kong premiere next month following its tour of mainland China and Italy. Presented by City Contemporary Dance Company, Pa | Ethos explores the concepts in Aristotle’s Art of Rhetoric: to reflect pathos, the dancers move with precision, following the standards demanded by traditional dance; while for ethos, their movements focus more on evoking passion. San’s two-part work looks at rigid social rules, which are represented by carefully measured space and accurately executed movements; and emotions translated into the physicality of dancers.
From August 26 to 28. Sha Tin Town Hall
