T.H.E Dance Company – A Triple Bill

Singapore’s acclaimed choreographer Kuik Swee Boon reworks on a piece, “Pellucid”, which was originally created for Singapore Dance Theatre in 2008 and re-staged by Mancopy Dansekompagni in Denmark in 2009. The work embraces the theme of simplicity while it resides in quiet, simple acts.

Next, two new commissioned creations by two internationally known choreographers. Spain’s Iratxe Ansa is a former principal dancer of Compañia Nacional de Danza Madrid and Nederlands Dance Theatre. As a choreographer, her creations have won awards and received mentions in choreographic competitions such as the International Solo Tanz Theater Festival, Certamen Coreografico de Madrid, and an award for artistic trajectory by the Association of Dance Professionals (Spain) in 2007. She will also perform her solo piece in Programme A: International Platform.

Jakarta-based choreographer, Jecko Siompo is a rising force in the choreography scene both in Indonesia and internationally. His choreographic approach encompasses remixed elements from contemporary dance, his native traditional Papuan dances grapple with the hip-hop, street dance style drawn from American. Singapore’s The Strait Times has called his unique work as “a force to be reckoned with”.
