Borders, to be staged at Osage Kwun Tong on August 1st 2008, aims to explore the borders of artistic creation through the interaction between musical performance, architectural space and gallery exhibits. There will be a focus on presenting works by three of Hong Kong’s leading young composers: Samson Young, Lok Yin Tang and Fung Lam. This will be Grenzenlos’ tour highlight in its 9-concert, 4-city China tour (July 20 – August 7).

The performance will include premieres of works by local and international composers. Borders marks Grenzenlos’ debut in East Asia. The group will present a programme of new, important works from its contemporary repertoire.

ensemble, an international roster of artists and composers and an artistic management company. Six international musicians from Grenzenlos and guests Dickson Dee (Laptop) and Leung Yan Chiu (Sheng) will perform as follows:
