Meet the next generation of dance talents in Singapore from LASALLE College of the Arts and Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA), as they present an array of short dance pieces by local and international choreographers.

LASALLE presents three vastly different choreographic voices – a moving excerpt of Silences We Are Familiar With (da:ns festival 2012 commission) by Kuik Swee Boon, a stark and intense choreography by Lee Jae-young (Korea), as well as a commissioned work-in-progress showcase of a two-week residency with Martin Schick (Switzerland/Germany). This Programme reflects LASALLE's cosmopolitan and cutting-edge approach to art that produces performers who expand and challenge the boundaries of dance both physically and conceptually.

NAFA presents two new premieres by its very own Ezekiel Oliveira (adjunct lecturer), Jereh Leong (alumnus) and a reprise by Lee Wan Yu (2017 graduate). Their work showcases the edge and versatility of NAFA’s dancers produced through the distinctive conservatory-style training and contemporary outlook that NAFA is known for.
