B. Showing

Standing at the edge of the world

A dance showing feature new works by Maya Dance Theatre artists: Eva Tey, Subastian Tan and DaDc.

 

The Empress' New Clothes by Eva Tey featuring dancers; Ng Jingwen and Charmaine Wu

How far should one accept the rules of society in which one lives? At what point does conformity become corruption of one self? Inspired by the Emperor’s New Clothes in which people are afraid to criticize because they are worried of being put down by others, the choreographer explores the fine line between Individualism and conformity.

The Empress’ New Clothes celebrates an individual’s self actualisation within society’s structure.

 

mnbSam (S-AH-M) by Subastian Tan featuring musician; Shivanesh

Sam is the first beat of the rhythmic cycle which musicians use as an anchor to the musical composition. Even in improvisation, the sam is almost always the point of resolution.

In our lives, home is like the sam in our daily rhythmic cycle - we start the day at home and end it at home. This piece looks at the broader idea of home and explores the many versions of it, finding the thing that we can come home to, the thing that we can always rely on to find a resolution

 

Confluence by DADC (Diverse Ability Dance Collective)

Inspired from an original soundtrack off a piece titled Gra-vi-tate, composed by musician Kaili Yong, this dance piece showcases the coming together of each of us to this new space that offers us a connection through our diverse abilities. The dancers transition in and out of moments like the ebb and flow of waves, displaying energetic and dynamic movements not just in groups but in interactive duets and confident solos. While the team comprises of dancers who are all unique in their own ways, the piece provides a common platform for us to express ourselves as individuals while finding harmony with the group.
Choreographed by Eva Tey and Subastian from DADC with creative direction by Kavitha Krishnan.

 

About DADCIMG 8800
DADC is a new dance collective for the coming together of like-minded individuals to develop their potential in dance and to create an exchange space to inspire, explore works and develop their passion for dance. In this space, the holistic development of the dancer is motivated through independence, sharing the learning journey and experience with each other and horning their individual talent through dance and beyond. DADC aims to built a semi-professional team of performers.
This collective was formed in early July 2018 with 10 members who were auditioned into the team. DADC is looking forward to invite more talents into its space in the near future. Currently the team practices once a week for 2 hours and is supported by Apasara Asia and Maya Dance Theatre.
