Synopsis

Under the direction of Zaini Tahir, FULL OUT! returns with a next-gen edition which spotlights the diverse talents of street dance groups from six Singapore tertiary institutions.

 

Over the weekend, audiences will be treated to three different shows, with each night featuring a collaborative performance between two schools, a result of five months’ worth of preparation.

 

With a strong focus on process and learning, FULL OUT! Next Gen aims to encourage youth dancers to express their voices and perspectives through street dance, to challenge their preconceptions and explore how street dance can be possibly transformed through investigation and collaboration.
