T.H.E 5TH ANNIVERSARY: BEDFELLOWS (2013)

Choreography: Kuik Swee Boon (Singapore), Lee Mun Wai (Singapore), Yarra Ileto (Australia/Singapore)

To celebrate T.H.E’s fifth anniversary in 2013, the company presented two major productions featuring the main and second companies at full strength: Bedfellows in July and New Vision in September.

Bedfellows celebrates our home-grown talent with three choreographic works by T.H.E company dancers Lee Mun Wai and Yarra Ileto alongside Artistic Director Kuik Swee Boon, seamlessly woven into a sixty minute-long work. Lee’s second work for the main company, In The End We Strive To Convey Meaning, charts the ups and downs of human emotion as we attempt to fill our lives, surroundings and relationships with meaning.

Ileto’s piece, perfect strangErs, places the spotlight on our second company dancers. Swathed in bedsheets and sleepwear, they negotiate the peculiar intimacies of relationships in various forms and permutations, effortlessly striking a balance between sensuousness and humour. Kuik’s Parallels completes the triple bill as an offering of thanks to all whom have contributed to T.H.E’s remarkable growth, including our own dancers. Like parallel lines, we move in harmonious accord as inhabitants of a shared space and time, yet still retain our distinct qualities.

Praise for Bedfellows:
“(T.H.E’s) performances have been forceful, dynamic, and uncompromising, with the dancers relentlessly embodying the physical, emotional and spiritual ethos of this special company.” – Stephanie Burridge, The Flying Inkpot

“舞人舞团的舞是每个舞者用领悟、情绪、专注所共同构筑的一件件 ‘感性艺术品’,‘舞’是其次,‘人’ 是第一。”- 王一鸣,联合早报

Premiere: 19 – 21 July 2013 at National Museum of Singapore, Gallery Theatre.
