Insane in the Brain Street Dance Coming to Hong Kong


Whether you liked the novel, written by Ken Kesey in 1959 and included in TIME Magazine's 100 Best English-language Novels from 1923-2005, the Broadway play by Dale Wasserman, or the film adaption directed by Miloš Forman that won five Academy Awards, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is a classic. Based in an Oregon State Hospital, it's a rough-edged insight into the world of psychiatric medicine and became an instant cult classic.

Insane in the Brain, a production by the Bounce Street Dance Company, comes to Hong Kong's Academy for Performing Arts this month. The production is One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest with a modern, hip hop, street dance twist, and all your favourite characters are back, including Billy Biddit, Charlie Cheswick, Dale Harding and even towering Chief Bromden.

With a classic story and unforgettable characters married with cutting edge choreography, stunning set work and costumes, and a Cypress Hill soundtrack that's guaranteed to turn you as nuts as your first girlfriend, this is one of the few productions that's guaranteed to appeal to both your personalities.

“What are you doin' here? You oughta be out in a convertible bird-doggin' chicks and bangin' beaver” -Randle Patrick McMurphy
