“liTHE 2019” is the 8th edition of the annual platform featuring the young, talented artists of T.H.E Second Company – the youth wing of leading Singaporean contemporary dance group, T.H.E Dance Company. Under the guidance of Associate Artistic Director Silvia Yong, its members, range from students in dance CCAs, and dance institutions, to career professionals who train and rehearse with T.H.E during their after-hours.
“liTHE 2019” is the last of a 3-year incubation (2017 – 2019) of emerging Singaporean choreographers Anthea Seah, Goh Shou-Yi and Marcus Foo, offering freedom, space and resources to realise their creative vision, take risks, and completely immerse the Second Company dancers into their style, over the course of 3 years. In 2019, they will work with the following collaborators to produce their most mature, fully realised concepts and performance: for Goh Shou Yi, Rei Poh (Dramaturg) and Ng Jing (Sound Designer); for Anthea Seah, Jevon Chandra (Music Composer & Dramaturg); for Marcus Foo, Venetia, Lim (Music Composer); for all 3: Liu Yong Huay (Lighting Designer).
