Pina Bausch: Cafe Müller / The Rite of Spring

10 March 2017, Hong Kong Cultural Centre. Pina Bausch is famous for not outwardly attaching meaning to her work. She gives audiences the room to interpret.

London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony: Isles of Wonder

27 July 2012, Olympic Stadium The most anticipated show of the year. And I feel so privileged to have experienced it live. It was phenomenal. A lot of people have been comparing it to the 2008 Beijing Opening Ceremony. But I don’t think you can really compare the two. Beijing was an incredible spectacle, showcasing militant … More London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony: Isles of Wonder
