About choreographer: Rebecca Wong
Rebecca graduated from the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts with a major in Modern Dance and Choreography. While still in school, Rebecca was presented in Hong Kong Dance Alliance's "Emerging New Choreographer Platform." She further received funding from the Hong Kong Arts Development Council to present her first full-length production "When Time Limps". Her works explore femininity issues, contrast delicate feelings with uniquely awkward movements in order to test the boundaries of the human physique. Rebecca is one of the active choreographers of the new generation and dancers in Hong Kong. She hopes to continue her expression through dance and have toured to Malaysia, Taiwan, Beijing, Guangzhou and the United States.
About the tour to Iceland:
In this tour to Iceland, Rebecca is seeking for galleries and artspace(s) to perform this art piece, When Time Limps. Besides dance performance, she is willing to have an improvisation performance with resident and local artist(s) and also arrange dance Workshops for adults and children.
About the dance piece, When Time Limps:
When Time Limps is inspired by the Surrealist, Salvador Dali, his paintings and diaries are unveiled layer by layer until the unfolding of his narcissism. The sharpness of body movements melts gradually. With the original music, surreal scenes of "relationship and love" are brought into the reality.

Workshop 1 for kids (5-10 year old)
11. 08 | 14:30-16:00 | Tjarnarborg | 500-kr @
The warming exercises aim to break the ice by pretending frog jumping, horse running or lizard crawling, that let the children freely move around. Then the tutor leads the children to observe and imitate different status of leaves in nature, such as the leaves laying on the ground or the ones swinging in the wind. Finally, the children will dance in group and share the fun.
Workshop 2 for adults
12. 08 | 16:30-18:00 | Tjarnarborg |1,000-kr @
The workshop starts with simple warming exercises of "Taiji Dao-yin" which help to release the pressure inside your joins and get focus on breathing. Then you will learn a set of movement inspired by "Taiji Dao-yin" and experience new ways of moving your body. Leading by the tutor, you will try to create a little dance piece by using the movements learnt with music. Moving is so easy, creation is so simple!
*Taiji Dao-yin is guided martial art created based on the principles of Taiji Quan. "Dao" means to direct the "Qi" (energy flow in the body) and "Yin" means to attract the body. The practice uses movements to expand and contract hands and feet, to increase circulation, and to expel the toxic substance in the body.

When Time Limps (full-length work)
- A Dance Tribute to Salvador Dali
Inspired by the paintings and diary of the Surrealist, Salvador Dali, the dance traces the steps of Dali, revealing his insistence and fears on the road of creation and how the Mother of Nature being his salvation.
With the original music, imaginations popped from the paintings become the moving shadows on the wall, leading us to the surreal world.
