The 2015 revisiting of Silences We Are Familiar With transports choreographer Kuik Swee Boon and music collaborator Bani Haykal to the emotions and sensations they inhabited for the 2012 creation. This re-worked rendition retains the core themes of the original, yet at the same time reflects the inevitable growth and maturation of the artists – including the dancers returning to this work, and the new cast experiencing it for the first time. What remains as the essential conviction: the silent acts of love often surpass by far exaltation of the same.
Silences We are Familiar With was commissioned and first presented by Esplanade – Theatre on the Bay, Singapore as part of the da:ns Festival 2012.
