Twin Cities



Twin Cities is an interactive film set between London and Hong Kong featuring dancers from the Hong Kong Ballet and Tavaziva. Narrated by Clare Perkins, the 10-minute piece tells the story of two dancers who despite their differences face identical challenges in the pursuit of identical dreams. Commissioned by the British Council, Twin Cities is a poetic ode to the special relationship between the communities of London and Hong Kong aiming to provide a glimpse into each landscape and diverse culture through the eyes of a dancer.
