Choreography: Yarra Ileto (Australia/Singapore)
Same scene, different points of view.
T.H.E Dance Company member, Yarra Ileto, creates her first work for the main company, a playful, offbeat piece that highlights the different relationships between the dancers as seen from different perspectives. Humourous, light-hearted and charming, Ileto presents T.H.E’s dancers in a refreshing way as they shed their usually heavy and weighted themes and attitudes.
Praise for Accidentally On Purpose:
“The five performers from T.H.E Dance Company are brilliantly understated; never exaggerating the humour or overplaying the melancholy, they allow Ileto’s movement to take centre-stage” – Germaine Cheng, The Flying Inkpot.
