HONG KONG SAR – Media outreach – July 21, 2022 – Dorsett Hospitality International is delighted to bring Our way of dancing, an augmented reality (AR) digital art performance, at Affordable Art Fair. Returning as exclusive hotel partner for Affordable Art Fair Hong Kong, Melbourne, London Battersea Autumn and Singapore for 2022, Dorsett Hospitality International has always believed in the power of art and technology to bring people together.
The Way We Dance at Affordable Art Fair
With a footprint of 54 hotels in 25 cities, Dorsett Hospitality International has supported the fight against Covid-19 from the very beginning looking after over half a million quarantined guests, medical workers and refugees from Afghanistan and Ukraine. As a hospitality group, we’ve been inspired by how our customers, colleagues, frontliners and people from all walks of life have danced in the rain, overcome every challenge together and come out stronger on the other side.
This is what led us to partner with digital art and creative studio The Collective to create Our way of dancing – choreographed by Yuh Egami (courtesy of Hong Kong Ballet) and performed by Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts students Jennie Chou and Lee Kok Liang.
Combining visual art, virtual space and technology, the “Awake” and “Progress” dances were animated by motion capture with each virtual dancer crafted through the lens of artists from around the world; each representing their own unique experiences of the pandemic.
Instagram Enabled Artwork: house of joy and House of Dreams
When one door closes, another opens. The Dorsett Hospitality International stand will also feature house of joy by Katrina Chuang and House of Dreams by Sunny Sun – two physical works of art on canvas brought to life through an Instagram AR filter.
Prints of these two artworks will also be available for visitors to color in and draw their own dreams before activating their own artwork using the Instagram filter!
