T.H.E 5TH ANNIVERSARY: NEW VISION (2013)

Choreography: Jeffrey Tan (Singapore), Kuik Swee Boon (Singapore), Zhuo Zihao (Singapore)
In collaboration with sound artists Bani Haykal, Tze Toh and effects creation studio Hong Wei Global

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.

New Vision concludes T.H.E’s fifth anniversary celebrations with the promise of bolder artistic risks, as the company experiments with technology and other cutting edge developments in the contemporary arts scene. The inaugural edition of New Vision marks the beginning of an annual performance series, where the visceral immediacy of live dance seamless integrates with the larger-than-life experience of film, video and multimedia art.

Newly-minted T.H.E Associate Artist Jeffrey Tan creates Command Pattern, an exploration of man’s over-reliance on technology resulting in blurred lines between benefit and detriment to society. For Kuik Swee Boon, the inclusion of multimedia in On top of white provides a blank canvas for the creative imagination unfettered by terms and labels frequently used in modern dance, to recapture a missing sense of playful freedom. An edgy blend of 3D soundscape, film, and live dance, Zhuo Zihao’s ‘Felt’ Sense literally immerses audiences in his study of the devastating effects of trauma that linger on the human psyche.

Praise for Command Pattern:
“(Jeffrey Tan’s) piece was a magnificent exercise in contrasts… watching the two (dancers) come together was a powerful reminder of Tan’s depth of experience.” – Lisabel Ting, The Straits Times

Premiere: 13 – 15 September 2013 at National Museum of Singapore, Gallery Theatre.
