毒品/BEHIND THE SCENES. KNITWEAR SYMPHONY 2016 PT. 3

Truly a symphony. This fashion show was “Mobb Deep”. An ensemble cast of knitwear flavors from the up-and-coming in Hong Kong. Organized by the good people at HKKIDS (Hong Kong Knitwear Association, lets say), there was some real talent to be had in this season’s crop. Hong Kong’s future is in some capable hands. Hopefully these young guns will be allowed to foster on home turf! We sent in a worse for wear, Nick D to photograph the proceedings backstage and somehow he turned some, “too cool for school” models into a laughing and smiling mess! PT. 3.

Thanks to Christine at Universal, and Sigma Productions for the link up! SPITGAN rolled out airport ways, to the cavernous Asia Expo venue, to catch the Exposure experience. Clearly Hong Kong ‘hearts’ Disclosure as the excitement was palpable. Of course peeps was showing out, so we felt naturally inclined to snap at em too!

Still shouts to Sigma for bringin’ in such a large act clearly at a height of their popularity. HK definitely needs more of that!

她有勁/SHE GOT MOVES. SUKI RABBIT INTERVIEW

SUKIRABBIT_WEB7
特別嗚謝/Special thanks to ‘Lil Fly
翻譯/Translation – Sharon Chiu
攝影/Photos : Nick D for Precursorprints.com

當Lil Fly跟我提及Suki Rabbit時,說她曾跟Suki學舞,我立即打起十二分精神,因為Lil Fly介紹的,都是非等閒之輩。我對於街舞這一欄也有些許認知,因為身邊也有朋友會定期舉辦一些與Hip Hop 、街舞有關的活動,但卻未曾聽過Suki Rabbit這個名字。於是我在YouTube上稍為搜索一下,BLAM! 很快便出現Suki Rabbit的街舞視頻。對於一隻兔子來說,她有著的是人類的超級基因,這當然是開玩笑,但在她的視頻中,你可以見到她跳Reggae及其他音樂時的超凡舞姿,她有的是勁,超酷!那些自命IT Girl的時尚博客,看看什麼才是真正的“IT” 吧。

< < CHINESE CONTINUED AFTER ENGLISH >>

So a ‘Lil Fly told me a while back about this amazing dancer in Hong Kong called Suki. Said she trained under her a bit, so my ears perked up cuz, when a ‘Lil Fly speaks, you know, ish gets a buzzing! I feel I have a foothold in the Hip Hop/dance game because I have some friends pretty involved in throwing events on the regular, but the name doesn’t register. A little Youtubing though and BLAM! There’s Suki! Suki Rabbit. For a rabbit, she definitely has dominant human genes! Jokes. Girl don’t kill me! In the videos, you can see Suki gots the funk. Seeing her get down to Reggae and different music styles, you just see she’s got IT you know, by the ton. So yeah, for all of fashion bugging out over whatever self-ordained ‘it’ girl of the moment, let’s ordain our first at SPITGAN, Suki Rabbit!

SPITGAN : Why do you dance?
Suki Rabbit : Because dancing makes me happy and is the way I release my emotions. Every time I hear the music, I feel things in my brain, and my energy finds the way out. Dancing has become a part of my life. Without it I have no place for release. It’s very simple, I dance whether I’m happy or not.

SG : Are you more yourself when you dance?
SR : I really like the free spirit of freestyle (dance). I’m afraid of the limitations of traditional formats and being trapped by a lack of creativity. Every time when I hear the music, it inspires my freestyle movements, I find that’s the “real me”. I don’t know if I would be “wilder” or not, I’m just being myself when I dance. I dance to the music. When the music goes wild, I follow.

SG : What’s the most important part dance?
SR : Every part is crucial from the techniques, and emotions, to your soul. There are no rules saying if you’re a bad dancer you can’t dance. Everyone can dance. Dance can be purely a hobby or a profession, but when dance is your profession, you have to be good. So it really depends on dancing in what circumstance. When I work, I use more techniques, but when I am doing freestyles and dancing in my leisure time, I use more emotions in order to express myself. Different music can generate different emotions, and I use different emotions to interpret it. For different occasions I use different approaches too.

SG : I think your dance style is very aggressive and full of power. How would you describe your own style?
SR : My dance style is very me, so I never really think of what style that is. I’m just being myself. Suki is Suki. It’s hard to find words to describe. If you have to have a name for it, maybe it’s “Suki Style”.

SG : Do you watch your own dance recordings?
SR : Yes, (to see how I do) sometimes I like my performance, and sometimes I don’t. When I see myself dance poorly, I will get upset and give myself some pressure to dance better next time. Of course, there are times I am satisfied with myself.

SG : How did you discover dance?
SR : When I was a kid, my parents would give me lots of freedom and let me try many things. When I learned ballet, I realized I love dancing, but ballet wasn’t the dance style I liked. I loved art back in the days. Drawings, designs etc. but I never did well in school, so I decided to spend more time on dancing. I never thought of being a professional dancer. I never chose dancing, but dancing chose me. I say that because every time I wanted to give up, it always came back to me like an addiction. In the path that I have travelled, I have met lots of friends who share the same dream, as well as, mentors and students. Their support and encouragements are my motivations to carry on. There are many things in life that I feel happen against my own will, but dance give me a clear mind and lets me be myself.
