my favourite time of year

Time to get inspired!

The dan:s/dance festival is back from 23 Oct - 1 Nov at the Esplanade. The headline programme list has been unveiled with Paloma Herrera of American Ballet Theatre, Shen Wei Dance Arts (New York), a collaboration between Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui (who recently showed Sutra at the arts festival here) and flamenco legend Maria Pages, and Australian group RAWdance (who also visited Singapore at the last M1 fringe fest).

I'm hoping that there will also be a good selection of local and experimental work at the theatre studio and other smaller venues.

Of course NAFA is performing too! I am scheduled to be working on a contemporary Bharatanatyam collaboration with Singapore-Chennai-based choreographer Nirmala Seshadri, which I'm very excited about.
