“This is pure dance, making everyday actions profoundly communicative.”
Daily Telegraph  

Everything that rises must dance is a participatory dance piece for women of all backgrounds, ages, shapes, sizes and abilities. The aim of everything that rises must dance is to represent a living archive of female movement, a snapshot of female day-to-day gestures in every region in which it is presented. It is also a celebration of female relationships and an ode to the way women have danced throughout history.  

Created by choreographer Sasha Milavic Davies and composer Lucy Railton, the work premiered in London in 2018. Sasha Milavic Davies is known for making engrossing large scale work within dance and theatre. This intriguing project exploring relationships, identity and community. In this Hong Kong version, all performers will be recruited locally for two-week rehearsals and two performances at Parade Ground.
