Raga In Your Shadow by Sandhya Su...
In this restaging, two emerging dance choreographers present their original choreographies, bringing to light the invisible standards and responsibilities that women bear, through a dialogue between poetic narrative and contemporary movement. With dramaturgy by Beto Ruiz, original music by Bani Haykal and choreography mentorship by Raka Maitra.The Last Walk for Water.by Karishma NairWhat makes a young girl choose death over facing her family after losing a day’s water? The Last Walk for Water stages the true and tragic final moments of Letikiros Hailu, a young Ethiopian girl who, like most women and girls in the region of East Africa, spend eight hours a day waiting and walking for water. On one fateful day, she slips, falls and breaks her full pot of water. More than eight hours of walking and waiting are undone through a single misstep. Instead of going home, Letikiros takes that same rope that held the clay pot to her back, ties a noose around her neck, climbs a tree and hangs herself.The Last Walk for Water explores the state of mind of this young girl as she watched the water spill out on the dusty ground. The unfortunate circumstance of her birthplace, gender and the increasing effects of climate change put her in a position that made her value a single pot of water over her own life, at the age of 13.This work is a response to the ever growing risks and effects of global warming and the lives that are most deeply affected by it, and is inspired by The Last Walk for Water by Scott Harrison, Founder of charity:waterMan. Untold.by Sandhya SureshWhere does the need to be feminine come from, and why is it defined as such? It would seem that a woman’s strength lies in her ability to internalise—to withstand wrongdoing, absorb anger, and endure pain. Though it cannot be denied that women have become increasingly vocal and outspoken about equality, there is still a pervasive need for women to define themselves by the same standards of femininity.When a woman shows aggression or uses a commanding voice, she is derided for her masculine qualities. Since external assertions of strength are denied to her, is internal strength the only kind allowed for a woman? A woman takes care of her beauty. She watches her figure. She smiles at strangers. As if she is not yet a person of substance, but instead someone constantly performing as a perfect woman, waiting to be discovered.

da:ns festival 2019 Acosta Danza ...
Following an exceptional career, acclaimed international ballet superstar Carlos Acosta brings his company, Acosta Danza to da:ns festival for its first performance in Singapore.Raised in an impoverished district of Havana, Acosta’s talent and drive fuelled a meteoric rise that saw him become the first Cuban principal dancer of London’s Royal Ballet and one of the most celebrated dancers in the world. This international mixed bill includes works which pay tribute to Acosta’s Cuba and presents the exceptional talent from his beloved country. Dancers from the company combine both classical and contemporary dance effortlessly, imbibed with Cuba’s rich musical and dance influences. In the programme are two enchanting duets on mythical creatures by the renowned choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, with Mermaid featuring a rare guest appearance by Acosta. Like a fish out of water trying to walk on dry land, or a stranger in unknown territory, the mermaid looks for help and guidance. With fluid virtuosity, she slithers like a human wave around Acosta’s deft partnering. The second duet, Faun, is inspired by the 1912 ballet by Vaslav Nijinsky, L’après midi d’un faune set to Debussy’s original score with additional music from Nitin Sawhney. The reprised dance of desire between a faun and a forest nymph takes on a new lithe, loose-limbed strangeness. The original Debussy score has been framed in a multi-layered soundscape with electronic and South Asian undertones by Sawhney.In Paysage, Soudain, La Nuit (Landscape, Suddenly, The Night) Swedish choreographer Pontus Lidberg connects to the soul of Cuba. The light and lively piece is set in a field at twilight, its playful choreography pulsing with the rhythms of the Cuban Rumba as dancers spin and leap in through buoyant ensembles and duets. The programme is rounded out with the energetic Alrededor No Hay Nada (Everywhere there is nothing, or Nothing is everywhere) by Spanish choreographer Goyo Montero. The ensemble moves through a series of dramatic tableaux coloured with jumps and acrobatic lifts, sliding and leaping in and out of light and darkness to spoken poems and jazz songs in Spanish.With the support of Sadler’s Wells in London and Valid Productions, Acosta Danza is driven by Acosta’s vision to give the next generation of Cuban dancers world-class opportunities. The company has received international ovations as an exciting new force in dance. Produced by Sadler’s Wells and Valid Productions.

da:ns festival 2019 Grand Finale ...
Nominated for an Olivier Award 2018 for Best New Dance Production and for Outstanding Production in the Bessies 2018. Won a 2019 Dora Award for Outstanding Touring Performance and nominated for Best Dance Production in the 2019 Helpmann Awards.Internationally celebrated choreographer Hofesh Shechter’s latest work for Hofesh Shechter Company, Grand Finale, is a spectacularly bold and ambitious piece featuring 10 dancers and a live band of musicians. This work makes its Asian premiere in Singapore, with the company’s first appearance here since 2010. Grand Finale is at once comic, bleak and beautiful, evoking a world at odds with itself, full of anarchic energy and violent comedy. Filtering this irrepressible spirit, Shechter creates a vision of a world in freefall—part gig, part dance, part theatre, and wholly original.It would be impossible to miss the fact that Grand Finale reflects the uncertainty and confusion of the troubled times we are living in. Shechter captures a sense of helplessness and a macabre mood of crisis, but also the regenerative promise of chaos. The 10 dancers are a vision of a post-apocalyptic society. They pulse through kaleidoscopic formations as one body, one tribe, separating briefly for moments of fervent celebration, individual anguish, tenderness, and rag-doll collapse.This portrait of the struggle of the human spirit against apocalypse is intensely cathartic. Shechter leads us ultimately past despair to euphoric release, and a collective sense of having undertaken a monumental journey together.Shechter is recognised as one of the most exciting artists working today, renowned for composing atmospheric musical scores to complement the unique physicality of his movement. Based in the UK, but playing on major stages throughout the world, Hofesh Shechter Company is a boundary-breaking dance company that produces exceptional work created by Hofesh Shechter, with at their core a diverse tribe of extraordinary international dancers.Produced by Hofesh Shechter Company and commissioned by Georgia Rosengarten.Hofesh Shechter Company’s Commissioning Partners are Sadler's Wells, Théâtre de la Ville-Paris / La Villette-Paris and Brighton Dome and Festival. Co-commissioned by Colours International Dance Festival Stuttgart, Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg, Romaeuropa Festival, Theatre Royal Plymouth and Marche Teatro / Inteatro Festival together with Danse Danse Montréal, HELLERAU-European Center for the Arts Dresden in cooperation with Dresdner Musikfestspiele, Dansens Hus Oslo, Athens and Epidaurus Festival, HOME Manchester and Scène Nationale d’Albi.Grand Finale is generously supported by the International Music and Art Foundation.
《成诗呈剧觅 "知音" 》 Crossings: A Double B...
A connection in existenceOf beings, of space, of time, and of circumstance,But moments last not forever,So I pen our crossing into a poem, and make us eternal.This year, the Singapore Chinese Dance Theatre’s core production “Crossings: A Double Bill” touches on chance and evoking sentiments. Drawing inspiration from encounters and conflicts in our lives, the production combines traditional elements and characters with contemporary ideas and expressions in its artistic creations. In the first half of the double bill, Artistic Director Lim Moi Kim looks at the crossing of time, and of people. A revisit to scenic cultural sights plays the vivid scenes of legendary characters and their stories before us, as if the writings we read in books had the ability to come to life. The second half, a dance-drama by guest choreographers Jiang Wei (China) and Zhang Yapeng (China), is an exploration of the connection, conflict and internal struggle of individuals using an abstract and contemporary approach. Accompanying the double bill is a collaborating group of talented musicians to compose for the works, bringing its aesthetic quality to a new, refreshing level as the beauty of music and dance blend in an evening’s harmony of traditional and contemporary art.
