Greatness can never be contained.

Published in instalments over 25 years, the hugely popular Hong Kong comic The Storm Riders was first adapted into the dance drama Storm Clouds in 2014. The fierce battle between Bo Ging-wan (Cloud) and Lip Fung (Wind), the ethereal dance movements of heroine Hung Chi, a complex love triangle and enthralling dance left audiences wowed. The debut was highly praised and won several trophies at the Hong Kong Dance Awards. Now the phenomenal show, which combines dance, drama and martial arts, is returning to the stage to stir up the mundane!

 

Many Hong Kong people grew up reading The Storm Riders, where within the pages of its near 700 chapters filling three volumes, a gripping plot and fascinating characters are described in great detail. Storm Clouds extracts the most exciting parts of the story, and sets it on an innovative stage that utilises digital imagery, a gleaming pool of water, sophisticated lighting and award-winning music score to reconstruct the comic realm and offer audiences great visual pleasure.

 

Swords wield, water gets splashed about and the two brotherly heroes are torn apart by hatred and destiny in this captivating, high-action dance drama.
