Perfect for both first-time and seasoned contemporary dance audiences—experience captivating moments of sensitivity and explosiveness at our annual free, family-friendly series, Dance at Dusk!


Festival Director Kuik Swee Boon’s Water Bloom unravels our intricate, convoluted relationship with nature through an excerpt of quiet strength and thrilling dynamism. First commissioned by and premiered at NUS Arts Festival 2009, this excerpt is performed by a fresh new cast from The Human Expression (T.H.E)’s Second Company.


The programme is paired with an excerpt of an upcoming new work by Klievert Jon Mendoza for T.H.E Second Company: Hawla, which means Filipino for cage, particularly that of a wild animal or beast. Hawla is set to premiere in full in 2025, so don't miss this rare sneak peek of this developing work!
