Dance performance to not miss this week Maya Dance Theatre
Maya Dance Theatre is presenting a selection of five different dance works that bring into the main stage different viewpoints on Hypocrisy.
A company renowned in Singapore for constantly exploring contemporary dance choreography with Asian influences, I can’t wait to see their take on the theme of hypocrisy.
If you are not familiar with the company, this is your chance to see some beautiful choreography.We are all hypocrites marks the fifth chapter of Maya Dance Theatre’s annual Creation series.
We are all hypocrites challenges the concept of living principled, righteous lives, absolutely free of fakery – a challenge in itself through an art form that so often sleeps into a territory of self-indulgence.
This fantastic program of dance also features a free of charge site-specific dance entitled HAZE, a prelude choreographed by Indonesian dance artist Danang Pamungkas, a former dancer from Taiwanese dance company Cloud Gate 2. We are all too familiar with this subject, and I have myself recently create and performed a duet inspired or better against the haze situation we are all suffering in Singapore. #HazeSingapore
We are all Hypocrites will feature five unique dance works, inviting choreographers to approach and labor the subject of hypocrisy in their own work. The collaborative element of contemporary dance, research and investigation promise to elevate the possibilities of being a hypocrite on stage to a new level.
I am truly excited to see the cast of Maya Dance Theatre performing this new program, an eclectic and versatile group of dance artists that constantly presents innovative contemporary dance choreography as well as works inspired by Asian traditional dances.
Maya Dance Theatre presents Creations 2015 featuring new choreography from Peter Gn (Singapore), Danang Pamungkas (Indonesia), Rianto (Japan/Indonesia) and Singapore’s emerging choreographers Foo Yun Ying and Jereh Leong.
Performances from 15th -17th of October at 8 pm at Goodman Arts Centre.
