But only the dance lives at once in both space and time. In it the creator and the thing created, the artist and the expression, are one."— Lyall Watson

Raga Rudram by Neewin Hershall
Rudram is a dance worship (aradhana) performed for the purpose of connecting and bonding with the divine, Shiva—who is recognised as the absolute truth (satya), love (sneha) and bliss (ananda)—and whom choreographer Neewin Hershall dedicates this complete bharatanatyam routine (maargam) to. With pure devotion (bhakti), he immerses himself in the consciousness of Shiva, while revelling in the bliss of the sages, religious devotees and wise men who have attained that absolute connection.Neewin Hershall is a choreographer, performer and dance instructor at Bhaskar’s Arts Academy.He performs extensively in Singapore and the region, and has toured Rudram in Kalakshetra, India, and Colombo, Sri Lanka, in 2013 and 2014 respectively. He has collaborated with dance luminaries including Leela Samson, VP Dhananjayans, Anita Ratnam and Meenakshi Bhaskar, and was a guest artist at Kalakshetra in 1998. Neewin is also a graded artist for Doordharshan, one of the largest broadcasting organisations in India.Vocals: Geetha Parameswaran Pillai AmpiliNattuvangam: Sasidharan Nair HarikrishnanNattuvangam support: Priyatharisini d/o Sukumaran NairMridangam: V M Sai AkileshwarViolin: Thekke Vengalath Kandy SajithLighting Design: Yo Shao Ann
Raga Shivdasi Chauladevi by Min...
An Unconditional Tale of Love and Devotion10th century A.D.: In the temple of Somnath Jyothirlinga, dancer Chaula performs for Lord Shiva every day out of love and devotion. King Bhimdev seeing her dance one day, falls in love and takes her for his bride. Chaula becomes a queen and mother, but her yearning to be close to Shiva remains. Eventually, she is granted permission to return to the temple, on condition that she gives up dancing. However, she breaks her promise and starts dancing for her lord, covering her face with a veil. Legend has it that at the climax of her dance, her soul left her physical body to be with Shiva.Choreographed and performed by Minal Merai, with music by Rajkumar Bharathi, the story of Chaula is told through the eyes of Samudra (played by Sivakumar Palakrishnan), the spirit of the ocean and eternal witness to the temple Somnath and its stories.Hailing from Baroda, Gujarat, Minal Merai has choreographed numerous dance productions for the Singapore Indian Fine Arts Society; as an independent choreographer, she recently helmed Shivoham, which was staged at the National University Cultural Centre. Minal is the founder and director of Art Lahree Rangashala, established in 2014.Dancers: Minal Merai, Akshaya Rajangam, Madhumita Venkatesh, Janaki Nair, Kalyani Nair, Muskan RaoScript by: Gauri Gupta
SINGAPORE INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF...
By: Robyn Orlin South African iconoclastic choreographer Robyn Orlin, acclaimed in Europe and Africa, has built up a repertoire of multi-layered performances that veer out of conventional dance into complex creations that incorporate diverse media like text, video and plastic art. Her absurdist, humourous yet provocative takes on dance and performance art have resulted in shocked reactions from unamused audiences. Yet, the same body of work has won her awards around the world, most notably the French National Order of Merit in 2009. Where Orlin truly pushes the envelope is how she continually questions and challenges the myths and truths of her apartheid-scarred homeland, weighted as it is with its complex social and political history. And So You See ... continues in that vein as Orlin enlists the help of South African dancer Albert Ibokwe Khoza, a fascinating new-generation performer who also happens to be an inyanga, a traditional herbalist in South Africa. In an enchantment of pure presence, he portrays the excesses of the seven deadly sins in a "requiem to humanity" on one level. On another level, he crystallises issues playfully and ironically like Why is it not possible to reconcile individuality with traditional culture? "Why is not possible to be a university graduate and practice traditional religion and medicine?" Watch as he morphs from traditional healer to flamboyant performer to meditative divinity to cocooned insect. Whether bedecked in feathers or wrapped in cellophane, Khoza is a revelation, effectively embodying all the extremes that Orlin evokes in her work. The graceful and the grotesque, the refined and the vulgar, the sublime and the sad - you will be brought to the extremes and back again. Asia-Pacific Premiere.
SINGAPORE INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF...
By: Christian Rizzo If you have ever enjoyed joyous, heady nights at a club - and especially if you remember the first time you did so - this production will bring it all back for you, complete with thumping beats. Le Syndrome Ian is the conclusion to Christian Rizzo's trilogy around found anonymous dances; the first chapter (daprès une histoire vraie) studied community dances, while the second (ad noctum) explored partner dances. Le Syndrome Ian takes this concept a step further and puts the focus on nightclub dances. This time, Rizzo - director of the well-known Centre Chorégraphique National de Montpellier - takes a more personal stance, by remembering his own story and exploring the foundations of this anonymous choreography happening spontaneously every night on the dance floor. The year is 1979. England is captivated by the intriguing sounds of Manchester band Joy Division and, especially, its lead singer, Ian Curtis. Le Syndrome Ian sets the stage at a club in London; its premise is to evoke the memory of your first night out at a club. Rizzo recaptures this sense of intoxication as he transports the audience to a world where the grooves and the moves were all that mattered. This is the emergence of a sound taking over disco; a dark yet poetic melody and set to the rhythm of electrified, jerking bodies. Curtis haunting voice echoes the feverish mood of clubbers, with the post-punk music matching the frenzied dancing. Le Syndrome Ian sees nine dancers taking the stage and while the tempo switches back and forth, a collective vibration will captivate you from start to finish. Winner of the prestigious Fedora - Van Cleef & Arpels Prize for Ballet 2016. The prize is awarded to the next generation of innovation by talented artists who will ensure the future of dance.

TUMASIK - Revisiting History and Re...
Tumasik – Revisiting History and Rewriting Our Story “Tumasik” revisits Singapore’s social history in the late 13th century during the majestic Sriwijaya era and the glorious century of the Kingdom of Singapura. Even much earlier, Tumasik was already known as an active trading port where among the goods exchanged or bartered were red gold, cotton prints, blue satin, lakawood, iron rods, iron pots, porcelain and fine hornbill casques. The narrative of this ethnic contemporary dance drama production will be gleaned from the combined research work of experts in oral and written history both locally and regionally. Tumasik’s strong focus on exploring one’s social roots and identity will hopefully encourage Singaporeans to reflect more meaningfully on their citizenry contribution towards the nation. We are pleased to have the support of our institutional partner, the Music and Performing Arts Faculty of Sultan Idris Education University in Perak, Malaysia for this production.
