Choreography: Davit Fitrik (Indonesia), Jeffrey Tan (Singapore), Wu Yi-San (Taiwan)
The inaugural edition of T.H.E’s Solo/Duet series features three original creations tailor-made to spotlight the dancers’ strengths in solo and duet formations.
Davit Fitrik’s Saya Bukan Saya unravels the farce and hypocrisy of contemporary Man in our march towards materialism and progress, in a powerful duet by Jessica Christina and Yarra Ileto.
Wu Yi-San’s Crosstalk employs the traditional Chinese art form in a dialogue of movement and spoken word that traverses the contemporary and traditional; Singaporean and Taiwanese, performed by Lee Mun Wai and Zhuo Zihao.
In the wake of the 2011 Japanese Tsunami, Jeffrey Tan’s Remains Remain explores its lingering, devastating effects on the universal consciousness, poetically conveyed by dancers Jessica Christina and Wu Mi.
Commissioned by the National University of Singapore (NUS) Arts Festival 2012.
