Release 5.0 by Maya Dance Theatre, a contemporary dance company from 2011, RELEASE was initiated to provide Singapore’s emerging choreographers an opportunity to create and present their work for audiences through the support of Maya Dance Theatre. Originally featuring three Singaporean choreographers in 2011, RELEASE gradually grew to include regional choreographers alongside their Singaporean counterpart in 2014. Thereafter with the increased demand in presenting new works, RELEASE also began to include international choreographers from Europe and America in 2015. Now in its fifth year, Maya Dance Theatre extends RELEASE by presenting emerging Singapore and international choreographers over two weekends at two separate venues!
