Want to know how choreographers think when creating a dance piece? What challenges do these artists have? How do you run a dance company? What is dance all about? A new event at Esplanade's da:ns festival; Coffee Chats is a rare opportunity to have an intimate conversation with a dance artist or practitioner.

In this session, be in conversation with Stephanie Burridge on History of Contemporary Dance Practice in Singapore from the emergence of western dance influences to the re-emphasis of ethnic cultures. Come prepared for a discussion through time with this session of Coffee Chats.

How does it work?
In each session, up to three people get 20 minutes to ask questions and dialogue with artists and practitioners. Due to the limited slots available, please be at the venue 10 minutes before the event. In the situation that you are not present, we will give your slot to another on the waiting list.
