Doa Buat Kekasih Concert
There are not many artistes able to bridge generations with their craft.Amongst this small but revered group of artistes, Ramli Sarip is the self-deprecating icon of several generations of music lovers. His fans span races and religions, from Malaysia to Brunei and Singapore to Indonesia.The boy from the kampong who claims humbly to “have very little talent” has grown to become the rocking Datuk. His gravelly voice is emotionally loaded whether he is singing about life lessons, divine providence or about aspects of love. The universality of his song has endeared him to various segments of society, to whom he is fondly known as Papa Rock.In nearly half-a-century in the music industry, Ramli has written and performed songs that explore life and living, evolving his craft along the way. From hard rock, his music may have mellowed as he finds himself walking in step with a greater cause. But while the melodies may be gentler, the messages, like his resolve, are still deeply meaningful.Since his time with Sweet Charity, the hard-rocking band he formed, playing in small gigs before hitting the larger circuits, and then rising to prominence as a solo artist, Ramli has constantly employed a work ethic that promoted the whole rather than the one.This is evident in his concerts, where he fills halls and allows a variety of musicians and styles to support his music, while allowing the individual to shine in their own right.His affable demeanour and willingness to chat over a teh tarik and a curry puff helps to cut across barriers.This approach is particularly helpful when it comes to collaborations with other artistes, which is also key to Ramli’s willingness to explore new facets of music. While many have enjoyed his duets with Ella, Datuk M. Nasir, and Dato’ Sri Siti Nurhaliza, there is one song that has endeared and endured.Doa Buat Kekasih, performed originally with Khadijah Ibrahim in 1988 has been reinterpreted numerous times in the last 30 years. It’s a tribute to the song’s central theme — Pray For Love — that people are constantly looking to connect with each other, and love is a strong bond for humanity.The song about breaking up but retaining friendship is particularly poignant in this day and age of fleeting connections. It obviously resonates with audiences, and is a sing-along favourite at his concerts.Doa Buat Kekasih came to be during the ’80s era of power ballads, in particular the Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes hit Up Where We Belong.In the upcoming Doa Buat Kekasih 30th Anniversary Tour, the song takes on a new perspective. Proceeds form the concert are being donated to Ain Society, a charity that raises funds for cancer patients.While supporting a noble cause, Doa Buat Kekasih is also presenting the opportunity for fans to see the original stars come together after many years to show how friendships and love can transcend time and generations.
Milieu 2018, Frontier Danceland’s annual end-of-year double bill production, will be making waves by using sound as an integral part of the performance.Artistic Director, Low Mei Yoke, will be collaborating with composer, performer, and choreographer Sascia Pellegrini (Italy/Hong Kong) to create an exciting exploration of the relationship between sonic production and motion. Investigate the implied motions and sonorousness of the tableaux as dancing bodies short-circuits the distance between time and space through its musicality. Afterwards, engage with stories that highlight life’s pivotal moments with interdisciplinary choreographer, Deborah Nightingale (née Galloway) (England). She will experiment with the notions of separation and connection and the varying viewpoints on the nature of reality.Let this double bill take you on an aural adventure in Milieu 2018!

An entranced poet visualises his radiant goddess. A lover longs for a union with her hero. A consort questions her beloved. A group of women is charmed by the handsome divine cowherd. A devotee surrenders at the feet of his Lord. This dance presentation, performed in the vazhoovur style of bharathanatyam, is about the myriad ways the soul yearns for and seeks out the sacred.About Lavanya AnanthA talented and critically acclaimed danseuse of India’s new generation, Lavanya Ananth embodies the grace and beauty of the vazhuvoor style of bharathanatyam. She has had the privilege of being under the tutelage of doyens like SK Rajarathnam Pillai, KJ Sarasa, Kalanidhi Narayanan and Bragha Bessel. Lavanya creates a unique aura of divinity and spirituality when she performs, which stems from her deep-rooted belief in the spiritualism and formalism of Indian classical dance.

Raga Dance India Showcase 2018 : V...
One of the main classical Indian dance forms, kathak is believed to originate from the nomadic bards of ancient northern India referred to as kathakars or storytellers, who wandered around and told legends and stories through music, dance and song using rhythmic footwork, hand gestures and facial expressions.Beginning as a spiritual solo dance in the Vedic period, kathak was brought into the magnificent palaces of the 16th century Mughal emperors where it took on a more erotic, sensuous form. Over time, it incorporated a variety of choreographed dance items, and evolved to include ensemble performances. Each kathak dancer lends his or her own style, identity and dimensions, often experimenting with music, themes, costumes, presentation styles and formats.Vibhava – Evolution of Kathak traces the history of this dance, starting from the Vedic Age when it began as a sacred dance, to the Mughal era when it became a form of entertainment, and to where it is today.

da:ns festival 2018 AH | HA by Li...
“Turn(s) the physical examination of a seemingly small, bodily gesture into a broader existential question” — Exberliner****“AH | HA, brilliantly danced with brutal movements, reveals itself as a portrait, built up by pieces of laughter, of the human being grabbing, searching, dancing, wounding and laughing until the existential void is turned into love” — Els Van Steenberghe, Knack“A truly choreographic trip (that) leads its actors into hypersensitive and precarious spaces” — Paris DanseFocusing on a single idea—laughter—Belgian choreographer Lisbeth Gruwez breaks this involuntary reflex down into its component movements, showing that the ecstatic laughing body can be controlled yet spastic, beautiful yet monstrous, connected yet isolated.In AH | HA, five bodies meet at a locale without a name, perhaps even in the middle of the night. On the rhythm of the circumstances they slowly grow towards another, coalesced by one of the most expressive manifestations of humankind: laughter. Deconstructing every nuance of a laugh, they embody a paradox: to portray an “uncontrolled” body movement, they require absolute mastery of motion. Resulting in an encounter that becomes a dangerous feast of shared ecstasy, Gruwez creates a concentrated portrait of human existence.Returning to Esplanade after the success of her charismatic solo in da:ns festival 2013, Gruwez, a powerfully charismatic dancer who has toured with the world’s top companies before going solo, also performs in this dynamic group piece that is filled with dark humour as well as conceptual and technical rigour.About Lisbeth Gruwez:One of the most exciting contemporary dance choreographers from Europe today, Lisbeth Gruwez‘s foundation in dance was built from her early studies in ballet, and contemporary dance at P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels. Gruwez started her professional career with some of the top dance companies and choreographers in Europe, including Ultima Vez (Belgium) and Needcompany (Belgium), and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, among others. Since 1999, she has been working with Belgian performance maker and auteur Jan Fabre who in 2004 created Quando l’uomo principale è una donna for and with her. In 2001, she starred in French filmmaker Pierre Coulibeuf’s film Les Guerriers de la beauté about Jan Fabre’s work.In 2006, she formed dance/performance group Voetvolk with her creative partner and musician Maarten Van Cauwenberghe. Their work is an ongoing conversation between corporal and auditive movement, in order to achieve a symbiosis between the aural and the visual/physical. AH | HA premiered in 2014 and is their first group piece. It has garnered rave reviews from audiences and critics around the world.

da:ns festival 2018 Invisible Habi...
In a world of rapid political and social change, we experience loud volumes of opinions and beliefs, many extreme and absolute. Finding one’s personal belief and identity becomes increasingly complicated. In da:ns festival commission Invisible Habitudes, choreographer Kuik Swee Boon explores these issues through the language of dance—where solidity and fluidity intersect—in a dialogue between the body and its environment.The performance was created using T.H.E. Dance Company’s “hollow body” methodology, an improvisation-based approach that focuses on the relationship between the mind, body and heart, where the body is a hollow container that carries an individual’s world. Invisible Habitudes expresses the authentic experiences of each dancer, telling the story of a fluid identity woven from memory, childhood, culture and ethnicity. Each unique body upholds inclusivity and compassion as antidotes to the relentless pursuit of one’s convictions at the expense of others. Invisible Habitudes is the first full-length ticketed dance performance at Esplanade’s Outdoor Theatre. In tandem with the production’s themes, the open-air venue allows for interactions with the environment, connecting to the sounds and sights of the wider world. The international collaboration also unites award-winning Taiwanese musician Yujun Wang, who performs live on stage, Singaporean lighting designer Adrian Tan and T.H.E’s talented cast of dancers. This production is part of T.H.E’s 10th anniversary celebrations.Commissioned by Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay for da:ns festival 2018About T.H.E Dance Company: Described as a dance company “at the top of its game”, The Human Expression Dance Company (T.H.E), is synonymous with Singapore contemporary dance of the highest quality and artistry. Founded in 2008 by artistic director Kuik Swee Boon with six members, T.H.E has performed at major local arts festivals such as Singapore Arts Festival, Esplanade’s da:ns festival and Huayi – Chinese Festival of Arts, and international festivals including Les Hivernales Festival in Avignon, France and Niigata International Dance Festival in Japan.With its unique brand of highly physical and kinetic works, T.H.E digs deep into the universal human experience. Their work is connected to the heritage and collective history of Singapore, juxtaposed with incisive, insightful observations on modern society. Kuik also developed the “hollow body” methodology, a practice that trains dancers to be all-rounded performers with the ability to convey the essence of their identity and lived experiences through the full spectrum of physical, emotional, philosophical and meaningful expression.
da:ns festival 2018 Joy by Joshua...
“One is left with the deepest of admiration for the dancers: the physical mastery, their concentration, their musicality…” – Richard Peter, Dewezet “The comical facial expressions caused many audience members to laugh so hard they fell off their seats.” – Silvia Minder, Scheweizer DepechenagenturHow did Jackie Chan not break any bones fighting in his movies? How did Fight Club not spill any real blood? Welcome to the world of stage combat, where seemingly spontaneous actions are carefully choreographed down to the last kick and punch. Created by Swiss-American choreographer Joshua Monten and performed by five dancers, Joy shows that stage combat is a serious craft relying on care, discipline, mutual trust and practice in performers. The intricate sequences involving punching, slapping, kicking and tackling are painstakingly choreographed, as well as deconstructed and reconstructed through distortions, changes of perspective and repetition. Although it uses violence, Joy is not a gratuitous celebration of it. Rather, it explores our responses to a visceral element prevalent in action movies, comedies, cartoons, video games and other forms of mass media. Why is violence electrifying or enjoyable to watch, and why do some people regard it as a guilty pleasure? Why do we laugh when we see Tom chasing Jerry? What does it say about us? Besides being thoughtful, Joy is also humorous, energetic and accessible. It contains a mix of theatricality and physical comedy that will appeal to younger audience members with little exposure to dance. It also presents an opportunity to challenge expectations of what dance can be. Read this interview with Joshua Monten to find out why he decided to choreograph a dance about stage combat for school students.About Joshua Monten:Joshua Monten was born near New York City and studied literature and cultural anthropology at Duke University before beginning his dance studies. As a dancer, he has performed with companies such as Bern Ballett, Staatstheater Nürnberg and Theater Freiburg. He has worked with choreographers such as Stijn Celis, Hofesh Shechter, Juha Marsalo, Doug Varone, Konstantinos Rigos und Tino Sehgal. Based in Bern and teaching dance at the University of Bern, Monten regularly choreographs for ballet, opera, theatre and independent productions, including for the Stadttheater Bern, the Ballet National du Rhin, the Staatstheater Nürnberg, the Staatstheater Braunschweig, Theater Bonn, Opéra National de Lorraine, The Yard (USA), Theaterhaus Gessnerallee (Zürich), Zentrum Paul Klee and Art Basel. In 2012, he founded his own dance company, for which he created the evening-length works About Strange Lands and People, Delirio Amoroso and Doggy Style. Doggy Style was performed at the M1 Fringe Festival in 2016.
da:ns festival 2018 Medium by Ria...
After successfully touring the world with Akram Khan’s company and Choy Ka Fai’s SoftMachine, Rianto returns to Esplanade with a powerfully virtuosic solo combining folk ritual, traditional and contemporary dance, in dialogue with powerful live Javanese vocals and percussion.Medium is a deeply personal portrait of Rianto the dancer. Featuring him and his childhood friend and musician Cahwati on a bare stage, it has a stark minimalism that goes to the roots of Indonesian traditional dance and music, exploring nature, spirituality and ritual. Rianto, who dances barefoot with trance-like concentration, moves from controlled, hypnotic movements to frenzied shaking. In his body, we see a fluid amalgamation which has stored movements from contemporary dance, classical Javanese dance and lengger, a traditional cross-gender dance from Central Java, in which he has trained since young. Accompanying him, alternating between roles as partner, lover, friend and mother, is Cahwati, who plays a variety of instruments and contributes live vocals.Rianto is one of Indonesia’s rising dance artists, working with a range of international collaborators and sharing his unique dance vocabulary with the world. Medium is his most personal work, embodying the fluidity of his practice as well as his life ethos. It occupies the space beyond binary opposites, between man and woman, between traditional and contemporary, between conscious control and trance. It is Rianto’s universal call for freedom, for eschewing dogma and for embracing the contradictions, mysteries and layered diversity that is at the heart of Javanese tradition.Co-commissioned by Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, Performance Space (Sydney), National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts (Weiwuying), deSingel Internationale Kunstcampus, and Staatstheater Darmstadt.Supported by Kommunitas Salihara and Darwin Festival. About Rianto:Born in 1981 in Banyumas, in the southwestern part of Central Java, Rianto trained in classical Javanese dance and Javanese folk dance from a young age, specialising in the cross-gender form of lengger. Rianto has been based in Tokyo, Japan since 2003 where he founded the classical Javanese dance company, Dewandaru Dance Company. He has worked with a spectrum of international artists and companies whilst remaining dedicated to his training and own voice for contemporary Javanese performing arts. He joined Akram Khan Company in 2017, taking over Akram’s role in Until the Lions, which will also be performed in da:ns festival 2018.His other projects include working with Korean choreographer Sen Hea Ha and dancing for Chen Shi Zheng’s opera at Schubert Theatre. In 2007, Rianto received an ANA grant to present his own choreographic works in Indonesia, Taiwan, Malaysia, India and Japan. His most recent solo work Medium premiered in 2016 and continues to tour along with SoftMachine: Rianto, a solo work under the direction of Singaporean performance maker Choy Ka Fai.
da:ns festival 2018 Nederlands Dan...
“One of world dance’s truly great companies” – Daily Telegraph“If the world’s dance companies occupied the shelves of a bar, Nederlands Dans Theater would sit comfortably on the top like a fine liquor—smooth, complex, potent.” – The New York Times“What atmospheric richness, what dramatic intensity—in the best moments—and what an outpouring of meaningful expressive discoveries about the human body this company offered” – Washington PostThe world renowned Nederlands Dans Theater 1 (NDT 1) is synonymous with technical virtuosity and gorgeously slick productions that never fail to transform audiences into dance lovers. The company returns with a power-packed production comprising four pieces: two works by house choreographers Sol León and Paul Lightfoot, Shoot the Moon and Stop-Motion; The Statement and Woke up Blind by associate choreographers Crystal Pite and Marco Goecke (also a resident choreographer with the Stuttgart Ballet), respectively.Shoot the Moon by Sol León & Paul LightfootA set of revolving walls magically transforms to reveal three separate rooms of three different couples. Inspired by film-noir, this provocative psycho-drama explores the gamut of hidden emotions from tenderness to violence, set to a Philip Glass score.Stop-Motion by Sol León & Paul LightfootSet to haunting music by Max Richter and performed by seven dancers, this production paints a moving picture of loss and grief, reinforced by video projections on large screens. The dancers’ movements, amid clouds of chalk dust, evoke ephemerality and transformation.The Statement by Crystal PiteThis striking piece by Pite, who is one of the most innovative choreographers working today, takes dance into the boardroom. Part play, part dance, the work features dancers dressed in office suits enacting a Machiavellian battle of wills around a conference table. The piece is set to a spoken word soundtrack based on a script written by Jonathan Young.Woke up Blind by Marco GoeckeYoung love, reckless and passionate, takes centrestage in this piece driven by two songs by American singer-songwriter Jeff Buckley. Buckley’s vocal power and frenetic guitar-playing are matched by complex and fluid choreography. The piece’s creator, Goecke, is a sought-after artist who has worked with leading companies including Hamburg Ballet and Zurich Ballet.About Nederlands Dans Theater 1:Founded in 1959, Nederlands Dans Theatre (NDT) is widely considered one of Europe’s premier dance companies which successfully forged a middle path between classical ballet and contemporary dance. NDT has been a seedbed for many dance artists who have gone on to establish their own companies around the world, including Ohad Naharin and Nacho Duato. Comprised of two internationally renowned dance troupes, NDT1 is their premier group, with 28 world-class dancers. Each one excels in their solo qualities, and are renowned for their versatility, astonishing technique and virtuosic expression.Built on a rich legacy of former artistic directors Jiří Kylián and Hans van Manen, the company is currently led by artistic director Paul Lightfoot in choreographic partnership with his long-time collaborator Sol León. NDT has over 600 works in their repertoire. Masterpieces like Bella Figura, Symphony in D and Déjà Vu are among the classics of the company. A part of the collection is even included in the archive of the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, a unique phenomenon in the Dutch ballet world.
