Choreography: Kuik Swee Boon (Singapore)
Featuring live original vocal and music composition by Bani Haykal
T.H.E makes our much awaited return to the esplanade da:ns Festival 2012 with this brand new work choreographed by artistic director Kuik Swee Boon. Performed to live music and vocal compositions by local sound artist Bani Haykal, Silences We Are Familiar With delves into life, death, love and everything in between; a dance that draws from our truest and deepest emotions and reactions to life. Together with Bani Haykal, this local collaboration will explore the most fundamental elements of what makes us human using the superb artistry and sincerity we have come to be known for.
Commissioned by the Esplanade da:ns Festival 2012.
Praise for Silences We are Familiar With:
