Kalaa Utsavam - Indian Festival of ...
“…I spent the entire day on the terrace of a café in a little square watching life pass by; the hustle and bustle, the milling of tourists, natives and workers. And none of the people knew anything of each other...” – Peter Handke, 1992Have you ever watched strangers on the street and wondered what their lives might be like? What are the stories behind their actions and movements? And how might you be connected to them in this great big world?In 1992, experimental Austrian dramatist Peter Handke (Offending the Audience, Wings of Desire) premiered The Hour We Knew Nothing of Each Other, a one-act wordless play about the things that happen in a day at an unspecified town square. The 105-minute piece, which consisted of 450 characters played by 27 actors doing absurd actions and movements, was a phenomelogical exercise in the first-person experience: people-watching.In Raka Maitra’s latest production, the dancer-choreographer takes inspiration from Handke’s landmark work to the railway platform, melding dance and theatre into a series of wordless movements based on everyday gestures, filled with strong imagery and fleeting glimpses of stories.Described by Dance Europe as “without doubt a dancer of the 21st century”, Maitra defies the conventional dichotomy of classical and contemporary with her expansion of new vocabularies and contexts of odissi. A disciple of odissi dancer Madhavi Mudgal, she was awarded the Shringarmani, a national level award for odissi. Several of Maitra’s recent works were inspired by Indian writers and poets.About CHOWK Productions and Raka MaitraFounded in 2007 by Raka Maitra, CHOWK creates artistic productions, engages in research and provides dance classes. Its vision is to be recognised internationally for creating dance that moves and speaks without borders. The company’s artistic productions include full-length contemporary dance works that have been commissioned by local theatres and festivals in Singapore, which have toured internationally. Maitra’s dance language draws from the martial arts and classical Indian dance. From 2007-2011, Maitra was an associate artist with The Substation.

Three Kin by T.H.E Dance Company
Three Kin is leading contemporary dance group T.H.E Dance Company’s closing production for the 2017 season and part of the company’s annual headlining showcase of creations by acclaimed Singaporean and international guest choreographers.Performed by T.H.E’s full-time principal dancers, the triple bill features Kuik Swee Boon’s fresh new interpretation of Water Bloom (a NUS Arts Festival 2009 commission) and two new creations by resident South Korean choreographer Kim Jae Duk, and Spanish choreographer Dimo Kirilov Milev respectively.About the works and choreographersWater Bloom, by Kuik Swee Boon – In 2009, Water Bloom explored the fragile relationship between Man and nature using a striking visual: the suffocating promulgation of red sea reefs arising from man-made water pollution, disrupting the ocean’s food chain, and therefore Man’s food sources. Today, environmental awareness and activism, are hot-button topics, with consumer habits tied to an awareness of numerous factors: sustainability, eco-friendly practices, ethical labour conditions, and most significantly; a pro-conservation conscience that is living amidst the consequences of the Industrial Revolution and climate change. In the 2017 iteration, Water Bloom thematic message is more urgent than over. The dancers embody the urgency of these issues whilst conveying that there is no simple solution: change must happen: beginning from an individual consciousness, that ignites larger, joint and sustained efforts.Kim Jae Duk – Kim has choreographed a new work for T.H.E every year since 2011 (collaborative work RE:OK…BUT!; Hey Man; Present; collaborative work Organised Chaos; Mr. Sign; Equilibrium), promises a kinetic new piece that delivers the best of both worlds in music (original composition by Kim) and dance movement filled with power, wit and humour.Dimo Kirilov Milev – Former Spanish Compania Nacional de Danza principal dancer Dimo Kirilov first worked with T.H.E’s principal company in 2013, creating the well-received Collisions for the DiverCity – a work described by The Straits Times as “explor(ing) the complexity of modern human relationships… each duet possess(ing) its own distinct flavour coupled with brilliant execution”; and by the Flying Inkpot, “the dynamism, athleticism and aesthetics… were breathtaking. All the dancers played their roles with individuality, finesse and strong technique.” Kirilov had recently performed at the M1 CONTACT Festival in end June 2017, and continued in residency with T.H.E Dance Company until August – this first part of the new creation. He returns in November – December to continue working and for the premiere of the creation.Photo Credits: Bernie Ng, Tan Ngiap Heng & Liu Yong Huay
