If something is captured on film, does it mean it is true? What is under the eye of the camera – protection, justice, exploitation or manipulation?

CCDC Resident Choreographer Sang Jijia’s new work Mr Blank boldly challenges the controversies in the use of surveillance.

Our world is a giant film studio. Every moment is recorded. Everybody is used to being watched.
One Mr Blank after another looks for his own self through traces remained in this enclosed space.
Enter the cracks in Mr Blank’s memory through the camera. Take on the powers that see everything.

Are you ready?

Hailed as ‘the perfect dancer’, Tibetan choreographer Sang Jijia embeds spoken words, music and new media into his movements, working in close partnership with dramaturg Janice Poon, musician Dickson Dee, set and lighting designer Leo Cheung, costume designer Cindy Ho, video design Oliver Shing and sound design Anthony Yeung. Mr Blank is a brand new dance theatre experience that plays a game of control with audiences.
