Mur Nomade

The Second Morning Glory


Dance and Music Performance by Ivy Tsui and Lego Shum

Finissage of Nastaran Shahbazi’s exhibition The Sun Also Rises

Saturday 24th September, at 5pm

A program of the South Island Art Day

Water, mountains, woods and cliffs… Nastaran Shahbazi’s paintings will be the backdrop of The Second Morning Glory, a performance conceived by dancer and choreographer Ivy Tsui Yik-chit and musician Lego Shum, rendering with movement and sound the contradictory forces of entanglement and hope that inhabit the Iranian artist's artworks.

The piece performed at Mur Nomade is the adaptation and extension of Morning Glory, which was commissioned and produced by the Hong Kong Arts Festival, and was premiered at The Hong Kong Jockey Club Contemporary Dance Series 2016.

‘When one’s life is no longer important, what is it? Like the lines and strokes in the paintings, the dread of surviving possesses me as though vines wrapping around my body. Before the morning glory has a chance to blossom, I strangle the self that hopes to escape. Let’s hope for the future and believe in good; let go of the fear and embrace the future.’ – Ivy Tsui Yik-chit
