Joseph received Arts Development Award for Young Artist (Dance) 2017
Truly grateful for having Pewan as my teacher, who constantly inspires, motivates, challenges, supports me as a student, friend and dance artist.
I wouldn't start taking dance class if she didn't give me the choreography award in the interschool dance competition when I was 18; I wouldn't imagine myself to be able to perform on stage as a professional dancer if I didn't see her work "Homecoming"; I wouldn't continue to question and looking for meanings in dance through choreography if she didn't recognize me and encourage me to make my own work and provide a platform for a student in uni.
For that, I'm thankful and proud to be her student.
Of course, I have had a really smooth path in career in Hong Kong once I enter the circle, and there are many more people I have to thank for their continuous support, trust and help. This award is dedicated to all the people around me who have once recognize this young man's dream.
And I hope that I can bring it in along my path to go deeper and boarder in dance and art, enabling the next generation to have a better vision and future.
