I met Victor Fung at the Greenwich Dance Family Cabaret, Victor and Ragnhild Olsen danced in the hour preceding the cabaret for Drawing Dance the activity I facilitated so the children could draw some dance before the ‘acts’ began. Victor invited me to draw him dancing the following weekend during the filming of his dance by PlatformDtv, at Chisenhale Dance Space in East London.
