M1 CONTACT 2020: Off Stage

This year’s hotly anticipated Off Stage celebrates up-and-coming choreographers exploring the themes of touch and connectivity.

Five young choreographers open up to the vulnerability of the creative process. In their personal reflections, they will share their works-in-progress with our audience, who are invited to share their feedback in a spirit of giving and receiving.

In The Other Half, Puri Senja examines the effects of ‘toxic masculinity’ on the body and breath, while Xenres Kirishima Chi Ji Hong ruminates on the condition of body dysmorphic disorder in Vessel of Theseus through his very own water breath technique, drawing influences from Taichi, Aikido, Micro-acrobatics and Capoeira.

In Moving Through Touch, Chua Pei Yun and Maybelle Lek tap into their experiences with movement, somatic practices and hand gestures to create a duet exploring possibilities informed by the negotiations between two bodies. Chloe Chua expands on the idea of grief as she confronts her emotions and coping mechanisms in Before, After and Everything In Between.

Finally in Thus I’ve Heard (如是我闻), Nah Jieying explores the concept of impermanence and emptiness as dynamic processes.
