“Hoghe moves with economy and care, lightly yet fiercely; every gesture is pristine, flooded with dramatic import. Ueno is supple, gentle, able to leap with abandon one moment and to describe delicate patterns with his hands the next.” - The New YorkerRaimund Hoghe is regarded as one of the pioneers of dance dramaturgy and as an artist, is a true vanguard of contemporary dance in Europe, challenging conventional notions of the body and beauty in dance and society through works which are “concentrated examinations of humanity”. His decade-long partnership with Pina Bausch is often referenced as a pivotal collaboration between a choreographer and a dance dramaturg, and one which had a significant impact on dance-making today.For Hoghe, going onstage is taking up film maker Pasolini’s words to “throw the body into the fight”. Revealing and performing with his own unusual frame, Hoghe masterfully disrupts our problematic standards of body perfection which he believes equate humans to the status of design objects. Beyond this statement of visibility, the bodies in his work are not only physical and personal, but unfold to become complex spaces that reflect on history and culture.In Pas de Deux, Hoghe is joined onstage by one of his regular collaborators, the Japanese dancer Takashi Ueno. With subtlety, humour and an eclectic profusion of jazz, classical music and poetry, Hoghe structures a series of delicate interactions around quintessentially everyday objects of Japanese culture, imbuing them with layers of meaning. Fragile and gentle movements, marked by ritual and deep human connection, expand into a cathartic resonance of time and beauty.Bearing a title that alludes to balletic virtuosity, this minimalist duet is instead a meditative dialogue of movement between two contrasting physical bodies, and a thought-provoking conversation between these different sites of memory and history. This performance marks a rare and first appearance of Hoghe in Singapore.About Raimund HogheRaimund Hoghe was born in Wuppertal and began his career by writing portraits of outsiders and celebrities for the German weekly newspaper Die Zeit. These were later compiled in several books. From 1980 to 1990 he worked as dramaturg for Pina Bausch's Tanztheater Wuppertal, which also became the subject matter for two more books. Since 1989 he has been working on his own theatre pieces for various dancers and actors. In 1992 he started his collaboration with the artist Luca Giacomo Schulte, who is still his artistic collaborator. In 1994 he produced his first solo for himself, Meinwärts, which together with the subsequent Chambre séparée (1997) and Another Dream (2000) made up a trilogy on the 20th century.Hoghe frequently works for television on projects such as Lebensträume (1994) and Der Buckel, his 1997 hour-long self portrait for WDR (West German Radio and Television). His books have been translated into several languages and he has presented his performances all over Europe, as well as in North and South America, Asia and Australia. He lives in Düsseldorf and has been awarded several prizes including the Deutscher Produzentenpreis für Choreografie in 2001, the French Prix de la Critique in 2006 for Swan Lake, 4 Acts (in the category "Best Foreign Piece"). Critics from the magazine ballet-tanz awarded him "Dancer of the Year" for 2008. Books about his theatre works were published in France, Germany, Great Britain and the United States.http://www.raimundhoghe.com/
da:ns festival 2019 Grand Finale ...
Nominated for an Olivier Award 2018 for Best New Dance Production and for Outstanding Production in the Bessies 2018. Won a 2019 Dora Award for Outstanding Touring Performance and nominated for Best Dance Production in the 2019 Helpmann Awards.Internationally celebrated choreographer Hofesh Shechter’s latest work for Hofesh Shechter Company, Grand Finale, is a spectacularly bold and ambitious piece featuring 10 dancers and a live band of musicians. This work makes its Asian premiere in Singapore, with the company’s first appearance here since 2010. Grand Finale is at once comic, bleak and beautiful, evoking a world at odds with itself, full of anarchic energy and violent comedy. Filtering this irrepressible spirit, Shechter creates a vision of a world in freefall—part gig, part dance, part theatre, and wholly original.It would be impossible to miss the fact that Grand Finale reflects the uncertainty and confusion of the troubled times we are living in. Shechter captures a sense of helplessness and a macabre mood of crisis, but also the regenerative promise of chaos. The 10 dancers are a vision of a post-apocalyptic society. They pulse through kaleidoscopic formations as one body, one tribe, separating briefly for moments of fervent celebration, individual anguish, tenderness, and rag-doll collapse.This portrait of the struggle of the human spirit against apocalypse is intensely cathartic. Shechter leads us ultimately past despair to euphoric release, and a collective sense of having undertaken a monumental journey together.Shechter is recognised as one of the most exciting artists working today, renowned for composing atmospheric musical scores to complement the unique physicality of his movement. Based in the UK, but playing on major stages throughout the world, Hofesh Shechter Company is a boundary-breaking dance company that produces exceptional work created by Hofesh Shechter, with at their core a diverse tribe of extraordinary international dancers.Produced by Hofesh Shechter Company and commissioned by Georgia Rosengarten.Hofesh Shechter Company’s Commissioning Partners are Sadler's Wells, Théâtre de la Ville-Paris / La Villette-Paris and Brighton Dome and Festival. Co-commissioned by Colours International Dance Festival Stuttgart, Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg, Romaeuropa Festival, Theatre Royal Plymouth and Marche Teatro / Inteatro Festival together with Danse Danse Montréal, HELLERAU-European Center for the Arts Dresden in cooperation with Dresdner Musikfestspiele, Dansens Hus Oslo, Athens and Epidaurus Festival, HOME Manchester and Scène Nationale d’Albi.Grand Finale is generously supported by the International Music and Art Foundation.

Introduction to Lengger DanceConducted by Otniel Dance (Indonesia)Join the dancers from Otniel Dance as they share their knowledge on the graceful costumes and intricate movements of Lengger, a dance form originating from Banyumas. In the past, Lengger functioned as a harvest ritual as entertainment for farming communities. Today, Lengger is a popular entertainment form in Central Java, amalgamating dance, calung music and vocals. Prior experience in learning dance and/or movement would be advantageous, but not necessary.Introduction to Nora DanceConducted by Nora Thummanit Thaksin University Group (Thailand)Come learn the ancient graceful ritual dance of Nora by Nora Thummanit Nikomrat, one of the leading masters of the genre. Rarely performed outside of Southern Thailand and Northern Malaysia, Nora is an archaic dance-drama whose origins are steeped in legend and prominent around the Songkhla Lake where it has thrived for centuries. The dance has its own music traditions and its movement techniques have an undeniably magical character, drawing on influences from as far away as India and Sri Lanka. This workshop is suitable for people with no dance experience.
