TS Crew

The Story

TS Crew is a Hong Kong performing arts group that has been touring internationally since 2018. Through stunning performances fusing traditional and modern dance motifs, they showcase Hong Kong culture to the rest of the world.
Having performed in Australia, mainland China, France, Hungary, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, the UK and the US, they won the Asian Arts Award for Best Show at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the world’s largest arts festival, in 2022.


In spite of their artistic success and hard work, the challenge for TS Crew is to fund the high cost associated with performing at this globally renowned performing arts festival without support and sponsorship.  That is why they were only able to take part in half the Edinburgh Fringe season in 2023 despite garnering excellent reviews and positive feedback from audiences.​

As a community creative enterprise, StudioKT supports social and economic progress in Hong Kong by providing a free platform to help the city’s artistic entrepreneurs get on their feet; That is why we are collaborating with TS Crew to enable their continued success at the upcoming Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2024.



The potential value of Hong Kong art and culture is immense but remains mostly unrealised.   The fact is artistic and cultural content has the potential to materially help our city’s social and economic progress plus accelerate our reputation as a cosmopolitan global city.

South Korea’s phenomenal ‘cultural wave’ (hallyu) provides a great example for us, with its creative and cultural services exports today making up almost 3% of the global market – that’s US$10 billion –  10 times Hong Kong’s equivalent.  

Just like South Korea, Hong Kong artists like TS Crew tell a story of an ancient and rich culture through the delightful lens of young eyes, imaginations and sheer talent.   TS Crew is just one of hundreds and perhaps even thousands of examples that exist in Hong Kong today.    It’s time for us to join to together to unleash this potential and to start our own Hong Kong Cultural Wave (#hongkongwave).

Gifted, hard-working Hong Kong creative entrepreneurs with international appeal, such as TS Crew, are the catalysts for this.
