In August 2019, Corey worked with Hong Kong Ballet (HKB) to create a breathtaking new dance film titled Lying Together, shot on location across Hong Kong. The film features dancers from HKB performing Baker’s iconic choreography in mesmerising locations, including the rooftops of some of the highest skyscrapers.
This new installment to the Corey Baker Dance film editions is spectacular whilst also furthering Baker’s desire to pull focus to the reality of our planet’s changing landscape.
This 4-minute film is set to the ambient musical track Lying Together by renowned band FKJ from their debut album French Kiwi Juice.
The film’s Asian premiere will be a part of HKB’s season: Hong Kong Cool running from 06.02.2020 – 08.02.2020 at The Box theatre, West Kowloon Cultural District. For more information about the full programme please visit: https://www.hkballet.com/en/see-hkb/production/hong-kong-cool-ballet-x-fashion
Ahead of the film premiere, a 1.30 minute live solo, choreographed by Baker will be performed by Forrest Rain OLIVEROS, one of the dancers in the film, to a short acoustic version of Lying Together.
