The “Creative Hub” project is a platform to connect overseas and local artists. Through open dialogue and cultural exchange, the project aspires to stimulate innovation and creativity. The Italian dance artists Luna Cenere and Ilenia Romano will meet five local dance artists during their two-week residency funded by the Crossing the Sea project for an in-depth rehearsal and work development process. The result of their cultural exchange will be this sharing session and artist dialogue.

Using movements and bodies as the means to communicate, this event will be a “cross border” union for both the Hong Kong and Italian artists. Despite their languages and cultural differences, these dance artists will use their common language, dance, to initiate their barrier-less exchange.
