When Time Limps 在时间瘫软时

Contemporary Dance “When Time Limps”

Toccata Studio is proud to present an international collaboration contemporary dance
performance “When Time Limps” choreograph by artist from Hong Kong Rebecca Wong,
featured 3 innovative dancers including Rebecca Wong herself, Ivanhoe Lam and Cyrus Hui
with local Malaysian music composer Chor Guan NG. 

There will be two performances of “When Time Limps” on 6 Sep and 7 Sep 2013, 8.30pm at
Annex Gallery, Centre Market. Besides, They will conduct an improvisation workshop to
explore human body movements. This workshop is open to public with or without experience in
dance. This performance also supported by Mydance Alliance, British Council and JKKN
(Jabatan Kebudayaan Dan Kesenian Negara)in developing new audiences in contemporary
dance production.
Together, the team brought us a dance piece inspired by Dali, a prominent Spanish surrealist
painter. This dance piece especially named after Dali’s most famous and most recognizable work
“The Persistence of Memory” where we sees soft, melting pocket watch. This performance seeks
relationship between space and time, defines dream and reality, symbolized consciousness and
unconsciousness. Through body movement and music, this performance brings audiences an
exciting sensory experience.

From the choreographer, Rebecca Wong:
Once encountering with Dali, I was totally attracted by his crazy and legendary life. Reading his
diary again for the creation of this piece, apart of his showiness, his snobbishness, his insaneness,
I discovered another Dali – an “absolute passionate and loyal-to-art” Dali, he touched and
motivated me. I truly believe the magic would be continuously in ferment.
