Goh Shou Yi first discovered his zeal for dance when he was enrolled into an all-male ballet class at the age of twelve. He completed his full-time dance education at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) and went on to further develop his craft at the State University of New York (SUNY) Purchase College Conservatory of Dance, with full scholarships awarded by the National Arts Council, Singapore. During his time in New York, Shou Yi had the opportunity to meet and train closely with many established artists such as Janet Panetta (Tanztheater Wuppertal). This affinity with dance also brought him to many other cities of Europe, Asia and Australia, exposing himself to many other styles of dancing and practices. Since his homecoming, Shou Yi was selected by Lianhe Zaobao as a “rising star to watch” (2015 ‘艺术新星–照耀未来星空’) in January 2015.
Shou Yi joined T.H.E Second Company in 2009, and has choreographed for its liTHE showcase in 2014, 2015, and 2017, as well as T.H.E Dance Company’s New Vision platform. His works have also been performed by arts institutions in Singapore, and been featured in festivals in Singapore – Esplanade da:ns festival, M1 CONTACT Contemporary Dance Festival, and abroad – d’MOTION International Dance Festival in Malaysia, Seoul Performing Arts Festival (SPAF) and N.D.A Festival in South Korea, and Gothenburg Fringe Festival in Sweden. Shou Yi has also been involved as a choreographer in theatre projects such as Toy Factory’s PRISM (2017) directed by Rei Poh.
