Established in 1993, Passoverdance is a local non-profit dance organisation, which later underwent a restructuring led by Pewan Chow, Antoinette Mak and a group of young artists in 2008. Passoverdance has been a recipient of the Hong Kong Arts Development Council Year Grant since 2016. The company is dedicated to fostering and developing local dance culture, as well as discovering and nurturing new talents in the community. In recent years, the company has toured to Beijing, Guangzhou, Singapore, Bahrain, Taiwan and Malaysia. With its endeavour to explore the infinite possibilities in the art of dance, Passoverdance strives to reveal the purity and uniqueness in each work, creating a deeper dialogue and interaction between the audience and the work.
The mission of Passoverdance is centred around two dimensions:
1) To foster the development of arts and culture in Hong Kong through
the exploration and creation of works of performing arts, with a focus on contemporary dance. We seek to instill positive messages into our works and illuminate art as a part of everyday life, inspiring the audience to reflect on and experience the power of art.
2) By offering dance courses, workshops, choreographic opportunities and platforms for dance exchange, we hope to motivate the younger generation to develop their self-awareness, confidence, creativity and a sense of appreciation for the arts.
