MERRY CHRISTMAS! WISHING EVERYONE A BETTER 2022! 大家聖誕快樂!祝各位有個更美好的2022年!



Hi all, 2021 has come to the end and we survived another year since COVID hit. With the virus variants continuing to grow, we should be all prepared to live with it and hope that life can be returned to a COVID-normal.


This year, KITA Performing Arts Company was again impacted by the continuous lockdowns that rolled in one after the other. Because of this, many incursions and performance bookings had to either be postponed or cancelled.


Although our business in Melbourne was hit badly, our crews were keeping their lives busy. For example, KITA’s Director Sabrina Chou is currently in Taiwan and she has been coaching a choir group for a Primary school in Taichung. She was also involved in several public art projects and performance events in Taiwan.


Diabolo Master Max (Shun En) Liao was invited to perform with the famous international circus group Cirque du Soleil in Chicago and New York between 26 November and 27 December 2021. The show “Twas the Night Before” is currently performing in Hulu Theatre at Madison Square Garden.


Early December we had our last school incursion program at Malvern Primary School. Our artists Yong Ying Woo and Manman Ng lead the whole school grade by grade and teaching students different dance moves and did a final presentation in the end. The organiser teacher was very happy with the program and even provided us photos to share to our Facebook page.


Saturday 19 December 2021, Melbourne’s Chinatown just held a post Mid-Autumn Festival and pre Christmas celebration event. Our very own Director Sabrina was the one behind the scenes to arrange the performers, which included a Traditional Chinese dance workshop led by Ondrea and Phoebe, a Street dance performance by Ghost and Multi-lingual Singing performance by Danni and others.


Thank you for all of your support in 2020 and 2021. Please continue to like us on Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/SabrinaDanceTroupe/

KITA wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a better New Year in 2022!



好久不見了,大家都好嗎?


2021年終於走到了年末。自2020年新冠肺炎肆虐至今,病毒仍不斷變種翻新繼續席捲全球,而墨爾本也在反覆的封城又解封中度過了第二個年頭。雖然一切尚未平息,但我們都知道與病毒共存將會是目前的生活狀態,即使無法恢復病毒侵襲前的正常生活,但至少回歸新型態的正常生活是必要的。


今年KITA薇蓉舞集從年初農曆年起,一直到中秋節的公眾演出及校園教學預訂都因為反覆的封城受到嚴重的影響,不是被迫取消就是延期。即使如此,我們舞團的藝術家們還是都在世界各地忙碌著散發光芒。比如目前人在台灣的KITA藝術總監周薇蓉,這段時間以來除了在台中某小學擔任合唱團指導讓合唱團得了獎外,更親身參與了許多中北部的藝術表演活動。


扯鈴大師廖恩碩則是受邀參與了國際知名的太陽馬戲團,在11月26日到12月27日間分別於美國芝加哥和紐約做巡演。主題 Twas the Night Before (聖誕夜- 多半指Twas the Night Before Christmas) 目前正在紐約麥迪遜廣場公園 (MSG) 的葫蘆劇院 (Hulu Theater) 演出中。


這個月初我們完成了今年最後一場在 Malvern Primary School 一整天的校園教學活動。兩位專業舞者詠盈和 Manman 分別帶領著各年級學生學習不同的舞蹈,並在最後一堂課用表演的方式呈現出當天的所學。安排的老師非常開心滿意,還提供許多照片供我們於臉書上與大眾分享呢。


此外,雖然KITA總監周薇蓉身在台灣,但上星期六12月19日墨爾本唐人街的中秋補慶活動暨聖誕慶祝活動有許多節目都是由她幕後著手安排策畫。當晚除了KITA舞者Ondrea 及 Phoebe共同帶領觀眾做傳統中國舞蹈表演和教學;還有 B-Boy Ghost 帶來的街舞表演及與觀眾互動的環節;最後還邀請到多聲帶歌手Danni 和其他歌手所做的多語言歌唱演出。


這艱辛的兩年來,感謝大家繼續支持我們。也請各位多多宣傳KITA 的節目,並持續關注我們的臉書訊息喔!https://www.facebook.com/SabrinaDanceTroupe/
