生於香港,十七歲開始接觸現代舞。畢業於香港中文大學專業會計系及英國倫敦當代舞蹈學院藝術碩士學位(當代舞)。畢業回港後,隨即加入不加鎖舞踊館為駐團藝術家。於2020年被委位為不加鎖舞踊館副藝術總監,策劃一系列的當代舞展演及交流平台以展開本地及海外於表演藝術的對話。

 

同時積極發展個人創作,嘗試以身體及舞蹈介入不同領域的創作與表演,打開觀眾對舞蹈的想像。近年關注身體的經驗如何被閱讀,轉移及重現,以及植根於當代社會富表演感的日常生活狀態提出疑問和反思。近年發表作品包括《回聲摺疊》(2016)、《世界(曾經)是平的》(2018)、出竅(2019)。

 

李氏曾獲香港藝術發展獎的藝術新秀獎 (2017)以及菁霖文化藝術基金頒發新晉編舞獎 (2016)。委約創作單位包括香港藝術節 (賽馬會當代舞平台),大館詩篇舞集(澳門)。同時亦為iCoDaCo 2018-20 (國際當代舞蹈平台)中的一員,與另外五位來自歐洲各國的藝術家進行為期兩年的駐地、創作及巡演。


2017年與獨立藝術家邱加希共同策劃《re:do/ Joseph Lee/ KT Yau》,首個以眾籌方式進行重演,演出其獨舞作品《回聲摺疊》,及後受邀往世界各地作巡迴演出。

Joseph Lee was born in Hong Kong and he began his dance training at the age of seventeen. Graduated from Chinese University of Hong Kong with a bachelor in Professional Accountancy and The Place, London Contemporary Dance School for his Master of Arts (Contemporary Dance) in 2015. Lee joined Unlock Dancing Plaza as an apprentice upon his return at the beginning of 2015 and became their resident artist afterwards. Lee was appointed as the associate artistic director of Unlock Dancing Plaza in 2020, curating a series of contemporary dance program and platforms to foster artistic discourse in the performing arts field locally and internationally.

 

He is also active in creating dance works to expand the imagination in choreography by redefining the territory of performance and examining the very nature of dance. His recent interests lie on the comprehension, transposition and reenactment of bodily experience, as well as reflection and questioning of the performative nature rooted in daily life of contemporary society.

Recent Choreography includes Folding Echoes (2016), The World Was Once Flat (2018) and Drifting (2019).

 

Lee was awarded Arts Development Award for Young Artist (2017); the Chin Lin Foundation of Emerging Choreographer (2016). He was commissioned by Hong Kong Arts Festival (Jockey Club Contemporary Dance Series), TaiKwun and Stella & Artists(Macau). He is also one of the collective members of iCoDaCo 2018-20 (International Contemporary Dance Collective) which aims at creating and performing a work together with five other choreographers from different European countries within two years.

 

In 2017, Lee, together with an independent dance artist KT Yau, has launched the first local crowdfunded dance project re:do/ Joseph Lee/ KT Yau and re-staged his solo work Folding Echoes, which tours internationally afterwards.
