Our mission for contemporary dance in Singapore
FiveLines maintains contemporary dance at its business centre – our mission, its developmental focus and creative output. Working with artists to collaborate and create. With educators and educational establishment to expand the community, enabling opportunities for creative output by new practitioners. And to bring professional excellence back to the youngest and future practitioners through classes and workshops both in the studio and in the community.
Our Business and Mission
As an agency for contemporary dance in Singapore, FiveLines enables opportunities for local artists to share their work in a professional frame locally and internationally, representing the diversity, curiosity, and innovation of the contemporary dance scene in Singapore.
FiveLines works with celebrated artists that are at the forefront of their practice, and who find value in collaborating with potential audiences in an educational landscape. Through our ‘Outreach progrmme,’ we deliver creative dance classes and performances that prepare teenagers for a future in dance conservatoires around the world.
FiveLines is committed to the production of contemporary dance in Singapore through events that affect directly local communities. While working with the community as audience members and performers to be in both the professional and educational spectrums, we are committed to working with interesting up and coming as well as established contemporary dance artists that push the dance agenda forward, artists that question the form of choreography – essentially artists that keep pushing the boundaries of contemporary dance, informing society on new creative approach.
Our aim to reach the community and enable curiosity in contemporary dance in Singapore. FiveLines is rich in stagecraft, particularly in choreography. We make dance accessible to all in Singapore, interacting directly with the audiences in theatres, studios and more recently through our online platform.
We ensure a reach, thorough and creative dance education in establishments in Singapore in the subjects of choreography and dance technique. Our outreach programme operates in local and international schools.
FiveLines is an enterprise for the community, and naturally, we engage our outreach programme with different welfare associations in Singapore, bringing dance closer to those that benefit from engaging within their environment.
