The evening will open with short Kathak pieces choreographed specifically for Jane by her Kathak teacher, critically acclaimed choreographer and Kathak dancer - Amina Khayyam, followed by the premiere of Void (work-in-progress); an arresting piece, choreographed and performed by Jane; an exploration of expression when faced with a lack of means.
Search - an evening of solo works choreographed for and by Jane; exploring her identity as a dance artist through the movement vocabulary she embodied through her training and career. It also enquires into Jane’s artistic adventures away from home since her departure in 2006.
An arresting brand-new piece, a continual journey of self-discovery, -recognition and -reflection.
Sensitised by technology and social media, it seems convincing that almost everyone has a voice…
How would expression be when faced with a lack of means?
How would dance be when faced with a lack of space?
"...Jane Chan's exquisite solo performance…left an indelible mark on the audience." – Pulse (on A Thousand Faces by Amina Khayyam Dance Company)
