Indigenous - Human Ip; Quarantined- Cyrus Hui
Indigenous - Human Ip (Writer/Illustrator)
Human Ip is not a naturalist, but she can tell stories about flora and fauna ceaselessly and vividly at will.
Roaming and searching amid the wilderness, the various species indigenous to Hong Kong are what fascinates her most. She has a penchant for describing their beauty in extreme detail with words and illustrations, the way a nature writer would.
She focuses on in situ research. Through the exploration of “indigenous” things, she constantly contemplates and asks how people and other species can be interdependent with the environment in the same location for generations.

Quarantined- Cyrus Hui (Choreographer)
The most familiar space that one lives in turns out to the be the most unfamiliar performance venue.
This realisation first comes about simply out of helplessness.
Since the pandemic began, theatres have closed, reopened, and shut again.
However, the body says that it really, really wants to keep dancing.
Whether one is dancing, watching, outside, or inside, everybody is trapped in a cramped space.
There is a yearning not just for fresh air, but also freedom.
Although the dancers and audience are “quarantined”, they are brought together at the same time through the screen.
