Created by UK choreographer Natasha Gilmore and devised in collaboration with Hong Kong dance artists, The Wolf Pack features around 60 local community members, including children, teenagers and older adults across three generations, making this a family-friendly performance suitable for all ages. The performance looks at the moral guidance given to different generations; from morality tales told throughout history to cautionary tales of the present day – leading to reflections on how dangerous is it to stray from the path, and for whom is it dangerous?
