PAINT ME A STORY
Choreographed along the appreciation and understanding of Keith Haring’s paintings, the dance story brings audience through a colorful interpretation of issues from ‘People’ to the ‘Environment’. Visual, emotion and kinetic possibilities within the artist’s painted messages are expressed creatively by the dancers, interweaved with a series of narrated short stories.

Objectives:
  1. Recognize some basic components of choreography
  2. Participate in dance activities related to the work
  3. Develop awareness of interaction between dance and other related arts
  4. Apply basic skills of description, interpretations and evaluation to appreciate dance
  5. Acknowledge the importance of developing dance literacy
