Synopsis

On the stage of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, more than 40 artists perform the ballet MARCO POLO.

In telling the story of the famous explorer who discovered the splendour and power of the Chinese Empire, it provides intriguing insights into the source of the fascination China holds for the West and the West for China. The meeting between the Venetian adventurer and Kublai Khan is the stuff of legend and choreographer Luciano Cannito turns it into one of his greatest production.

At the crossroads of classical and Asian dance, this work requires the performers to express their academic skills whilst simultaneously immersing themselves in a body language that conjures up distant shores.
