Jazz pianist Amanda Lee and Flamenco dancer Tania Goh step into each other’s worlds to discover areas of common ground and seek new possibilities across time and space in their respective art forms.
Join them on their exploration of Spanish influences in jazz through improvisation and reinterpretation of works by the likes of Jelly Roll Morton, Manuel de Falla and others.
No tickets will be issued. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Classically trained and versatile across genres, Singaporean jazz pianist Amanda Lee has been rapidly making her mark as a torchbearer of the swing and stride piano styles of 1930/40s classic jazz, regionally and internationally. Trained in Kansas City (USA), Amanda was a recipient of the 2020 New York Hot Jazz Camp Scholarship. She has performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Lion City Youth Jazz Festival, Esplanade's Jazz In July Festival, Singapore Night Festival and Singjazz Festival and is privileged to have performed with household names Dick Lee, Louis Soliano and Jeremy Monteiro, amongst others.
Amanda loves teaching and sharing jazz with the world and is no stranger to cross-genre collaboration, being a swing dancer herself, and having composed original music set to local poems for The Arts House’s Textures Festival 2021.
Creativity has no borders and manifests in Tania’s multi-faceted experiences—as dancer, teacher, arts producer and digital creator. Discovering her great love for Flamenco from its source in Seville (Spain), Tania's passion for this art and culture has led her to bridge artists from Spain to international shores through shows, masterclass workshops, tours and online and video platforms.
Tania is keen to explore how Spanish dance music evolves in Southeast Asia, interacting with local flavours and interpretation. She has led projects like Project Flamenco Southeast Asia (a collective comprising her ensemble and school, Spanish Dance Singapore, as well as Indonesian and Vietnamese practitioners) and Spanish Resonances (a project with The Harp Quarterly exploring the great and well-loved Spanish classics).
