About the duo

Ghost and John are a Hongkongese multidisciplinary art duo, currently based in London. From Computer Science and Biology backgrounds, we investigate how art is being received by society and is the tool to uphold the freedom of expression, utilising digital interactive technology to influence theatre politics. We are a danceWEB scholarship recipient and a young choreographer in ATLAS at ImPulsTanz - Vienna International Dance Festival 2019 respectively. They are artist members of Chisenhale Dance Space, London and artist fellows of Hong Kong Dance Alliance.

Ghost and John's works around liminalities, questioning the cultural identity of being a Hongkongese and challenging new forms of arts, presented in theatres, studios, bars and clubs across London, Vienna and Hong Kong. Their recent works include: Meniscus, a multimedia ensemble work where they invited twenty-six international artists of different art forms, premiered at The Place, London;  I'M NOT SURE ABOUT YOU, BUT I NEED ...,  a double bill of solo works is presented at ImPulsTanz, Vienna and The Place, London. 

“Highly engaged, emerging artist, whose creations are formally and content wise, cutting edge, examine amongst others other changing relationship with communication technology and also addressing some of the current political issues.” 

- Dr. Guy Cools, renowned Dance Dramaturg, Associate Professor in Dance Studies, Fontys School of Fine and Performing Arts, the Netherlands and Guest Professor, Ghent University, Belgium

Previously Analyst Programmer and Marine Biology Research Personnel, Ghost and John has recently completed MA Contemporary Dance at London Contemporary Dance School (The Place), with first degrees from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. They were mainly trained under Siu Wan from SHOW DANCE and Tsang Wing Fai back in Hong Kong. They are also part of a Hongkongese trio, ShumGhostJohn.
