About the Artists

“Moving a memory is truly a peculiar cultural experience that makes your day. A meditative oasis that reminds us of another dimension of life that we all too often forget to be in touch with”


“Wayson Poon’s dreamy and playful choreography removes for a while the force of gravity, well helped along the way by Paul Yip’s meditative composition and soft soundscape”

A breathing space

Gymnasiums involve scheduled exercises and body movements that activate a wide range of emotions – a space charged with fear, joy and potential freedom.

Moving a memory, a Hong Kong–Nordic co-production, is a performance plus exhibition created for gymnasiums and other physical learning spaces. Convoi Exceptionnel explores experiences and memories connected with these spaces where our bodies are trained, challenged and disciplined.

For New Vision the production will take place in a dance studio. Walk inside, sense your feet on the floor, and get yourself ready for encounters between the known and the unknown. A chance to explore the poetic and atmospheric imagery first crafted in a Nordic gymnasium which now unfolds in a dance studio in Hong Kong.

“In the Nordics, the gymnasium is a symbol of physical fitness and an architectural manifestation of public health. We challenged the space’s authority and gave it a poetic language. The studio at Kwai Tsing Theatre allows us to unearth yet a new dimension in Moving a memory that the gymnasium cannot offer…”

─ Stage director Jon R. Skulberg and dance artist Wayson Poon
