24 Hours in Movement: Pegged Legs, Hooked Hands

Hong Kong’s first 24 hours movement and dance festival.


Curated by Alice Rensy, the festival features performances by more than 40 artists from Hong Kong and overseas throughout an entire day of dance, film, music, literature and other dramatic showpieces.


Unlike a typical theatre performance, the program for 24 Hours in Movement: Pegged Legs, Hooked Hands spans throughout the Eaton HK building continuously. Embracing the site-specific context of each performance within a public environment is artistically at the centre of the program, fostering a unique relationship between artists, audience and passers-by as the day unfolds.


From 7am guests can watch sunrise by the flamingo-studded swimming pool on 21st floor over hot coffee. Dance and drama performances will then follow each other, encouraging the audience to travel around the hotel throughout the day. Highlights include parkour during breakfast; acrobatics and Cantonese opera at The Astor over dinner, a special section on love and instability within families at Yat Tung Heen, dramatic readings in Tomorrow Maybe; a partnership with Hong Kong Ballet, a classical performance by Cambodia’s only gay dance troupe, and more.


At 5pm, ‘For The Record’ – an open-call “two on two” street dance competition takes place at the Eaton HK Ballroom ‘Maggie.’ Featuring 3x World Champion B-boy Ben BoxWon Barnes and an array of top-level performers from Hong Kong’s street dance community as judges, the event utilizes the Hip-Hop principles of “peace, unity, love and having fun,” to highlight talent across dance disciplines, both foreign and local. The competition will go on until a winner is crowned in the finals at 9pm, after which the party continues all night long in the hotel at Terrible Baby.
