AS IT FADES (2011)

Choreography: Kuik Swee Boon (Singapore)
2014 Collaborators: Sound artist Bani Haykal and Guzheng artist Natalie Tse

Hailed as “one of the top three performances in Singapore 2011” by The Straits Times, T.H.E Dance Company brings its landmark production As It Fades back to vivid life this May. Originally created for the Singapore Arts Festival 2011, As It Fades draws upon folk tunes, dialects, and memories to create an emotionally-charged language that connects us to a fading Asian heritage. Restaged in 2014 by 15 members of T.H.E main and second companies, with music by award-winning sound artist Bani Haykal in collaboration with guzheng artist Natalie Tse.

Originally commissioned by the Singapore Arts Festival 2011, As It Fades was restaged in 2014 at the SOTA Drama Theatre.
