Till death do us part: a conquest of love, fate and free will
From a Tang dynasty romance and a Ming dynasty opera to the masterful Cantonese opera adaptation by Tong Tik-sang, The Legend of the Purple Hairpin and the unrelenting love of its protagonists Li Yi and Huo Xiaoyu have seen countless reiterations. In this modern-day take contemplating multiple universes, the different versions of Huo Xiaoyu are locked in a myth of destiny and self-determination. Will she accept a fate cut short? Continue to search for happiness? Or fight for what she believes in?
Hong Kong Dance Company and Utopia Cantonese Opera Workshop’s joint presentation of "Waiting Heart" premiered in 2018 to great acclaim and won two Hong Kong Dance Awards. In 2021, this artistic adventure across boundaries returns to the stage, celebrating an inheritance of traditions and the wonders of contemporary imagination.
