Hong Kong’s interdisciplinary artist Phoebe Hui and dancer Ying Cai have started the six-month residency program in Yale University under the HKETONY Arts Fellowship program.

In partnership with the Yale-China Association (YCA) for the second year, the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office New York (HKETONY) aims to bring cross-cultural immersion experience for the young Hong Kong artists. The two arts fellows will develop their own projects to be premiered at the 2017 International Festival of Arts & Ideas after taking arts and cultural courses at Yale.

“As the West Kowloon Cultural District is taking shape on the waterfront in Hong Kong, I hope this partnership will contribute to enriching the arts and cultural scene of our home city besides strengthening our ties with the United States,” said Director of HKETONY Steve Barclay.

David Youtz, executive director of YCA, said,“Phoebe and Ying will bring new energy and creativity to the arts community here, like their predecessors Hao Yang and Parry Ling,” he said.

Ms. Hui’s primary research focus is in the relationship between language, sound, and technology. She  was most recently a lecturer in the Visual Arts and Culture program at the Hong Kong Design Institute. She graduated from City University of Hong Kong, UCLA and Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design.

As a choreographer, Ms. Cai has received commission from a number of international entities in Hong Kong and Asia. Her recent performance credits include Returning Spirit (2015), A Dialogue Between “women” (2015), Umbrella (2014) and On the Road Again (2011-2013). Her upcoming dance piece, wǒ mén, will premiere in the 2016 Hong Kong Arts Festival. She graduated from Beijing Dance Academy and Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.
