In the Cloud – The Creative Process

Chan Wai-lok

In the Cloud – The Creative Process offers insight into the collaborative development of dance artist Chan Wai-lok’s experimental dance experience In the Cloud, presented as part of West Kowloon’s Phygital D dance programme in 2022.

Through clips from online sharings, 16 artists and scholars from a range of fields share memories and thoughts on dance, art and imagination as part of the creative process for the final work. In response to social distancing rules in place at the time, the 1-on-1 encounters took place online, with each collaborator invited to speak with Chan Wai-lok from his private studio.

Chan’s In the Cloud project was devised to encourage engagement and communication during pandemic-enforced restrictions and isolation.
