Next Generation returns to da:ns festival with two notable festival artists working closely with students from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts and LASALLE College of the Arts in a one-week creative residency respectively. With a strong focus on the process, the students will get a chance to learn movement phrases from each artist, and co-create with them as they get introduced to different creative practices, philosophies and movement styles.


The students of LASALLE College of the Arts will be working closely with Taiwanese dance artist Liu I-Ling. Drawing from both I-Ling's and the students’ lived experience during the pandemic, the residency will reflect on their journeys through dance, and how their relationships with dance have changed over the years.


This session will be a casual and informal sharing of the creative residency. Audiences will get to hear about the interactions and exchanges between the festival artist and students in between presentations of the works-in-progress. Join in the conversation between the artists, students, educators and other audience members to learn more about the process of the residency.
