In New Boom In Circus, we are to discover local circus artists with unique potential – they are invited to come to Tai Kwun for a brand new performing experience of theatre productions.

This year, New Boom In Circus will have two performance units - Rare Circus and Dennis Law. Since Rare Circus was established in 2021 by Huang Ho Yin and Ho Ho Yeung, the two have been practising with a focus on diabolo and crystal ball respectively. In their over ten years of experience, they have come to realise that there is more than one way to perform with a prop and each prop carries its own set of symbolic languages. With such understanding, their performance this time will be a duo - a dialogue between the two and at the same time a dialogue between props and them.

Dennis started practising magic from secondary school and has been exploring different performing arts including martial arts, juggling, dance, physical theatre, clowning and puppet. His performance this year is ball juggling in the combined form of magic and acrobatics playing with physical possibilities of a ball.

Dramaturg: Chen Hsingho


Two individuals, one relationship;

Subject to respective ways of thinking, prejudices, principles and weaknesses;

In the process of communication, is there a way to reach consensus?

Or this will lead to more possibilities?

Rare Circus will lead the audience to exploring tacit understanding and dramas between their bodies and juggling props.

Creation and Performance: Charles Huang@Rare Circus & Ho Ho Yeung@Rare Circus


Magic and juggling, so much alike yet so different by nature.

Combining the two in juggling and showcasing all possibilities around the theme, Dennis Law explores an interesting way of playing with props, which is both magical and acrobatic but at the same time not completely fitting the definition of either one of them, creating a specious performance that keeps you wondering.

Creation and Performance: Dennis Law

Dennis Law

Charles is a juggling artist and member of Rare Circus. Having practicing diabolo for 13 years, his professional career began after winning the local juggling competition and became the first Hong Kong winner at overseas juggling tournaments. He has been invited to perform in Taiwan, Malaysia, Japan, United Kingdom, etc.

Inspired by an international juggling event organised in Taiwan in 2018, Charles began to realise that there is more than one way to present diabolo performance. He started to explore a new journey where the diabolo and the arts significantly intersect with each other. He becomes enthusiastic in exploring other forms of art, such as dance and theatre, whilst keeping his favourite diablo training.

Besides his passion for the arts, Charles also believes in the uniqueness of individuals, with the belief that “everyone can create his/her own language and symbol despite using the same juggling tool.”

Ho Ho Yeung was born in Hong Kong. He is a member of Rare Circus and is a typical juggling fan. Contact ball juggling is his favourite item.

Dennis Law is a versatile performer. He started practicing magic since secondary school and won two third-place and one second-place in the Hong Kong Close-up Magic Competition.

Dennis’s performance is not limited to magic. He was exposed to different performing arts, including martial arts, juggling, dance, movement, clowning and puppets. These different art forms had impacts on his creations, that he is able to mix different elements and techniques together to create unique performance pieces.
