Witness pure joy from an aesthetic collision of movement and music as two international choreographers from two diametrically different cities take young dancers from NUS to a heightened state of activity in Overdrive. Awardwinning young Israel-born Idan Cohen’s Private Dancer reveals the way we see and think of our most intimate instrument - our body - as a medium through which we try and shape our being into significance within the hierarchy of contemporary social expectation.
Akiko Kitamura, acknowledged as a leader of Japan’s contemporary dance world since its nascent period with her dance company Leni-Basso, investigates in Emotional Strata how our perception of objects have changed in our consumerist society, heightened by catastrophes such as the Great Tohoku Earthquake on March 11.
Finally, Taipei-based dance collective HORSE Dance Theatre will present an excerpt from their critically acclaimed piece 2 Men as a counterfoil.
