BECKET — The Jacob’s Pillow debut of the Hong Kong Ballet offers up a dramatic example of the internationalism and range of training, personnel, and repertoire that are ubiquitous in the dance world today. Though the majority of the company is Chinese, there are a few Europeans and North Americans in the mix; they are directed by the Swedish Madeleine Onne. Of the three choreographers represented on the program, two, Kinsun Chan and Peter Quanz, are Canadian-born, and the third, Nils Christe, is Dutch.
Just as the artists represent a broad swath of cultures, so do the characters and themes presented. In Chan’s 2011 “Black on Black,” the dancers are coolly glamorous; in Quanz’s 2010 “Luminous,” they portray various shades of young romance.
