Forecast 2.0: The Singapore Project is a three-part show bringing together Singapore’s finest independent artists alongside T.H.E Dance Company. It is important to keep eyes and minds open when watching this show, as it is multilayered, dynamic and engaging, with the artistry of the three works matching the skills of the dancers.
Opening with a solo piece – NAMUH by Amelia Chong – circle of life, transitions, growth and metamorphosis come to life through a fusion of ethnic and contemporary dance. As a solo performer, Chong superbly fills the stage with poignant bodily images, embodying multiplicity by “flipping human on its head.”
The second piece, “Double” by Albert Tiong, shows a never-ending swirl of the modern world. Playing catch ups and trying to be like someone else is a powerful pull, strikingly portrayed by Gan Kee Lui and Syaril Amri Bin Mohammed Tajuddin.
The final piece, “Un-form” by T.H.E Dance Company and choreographed by Kuik Swee Boon, questions the relationship of man with his environment. As the three dancers, Anthea Seah, Brandon Khoo and Lynette Lim, journey through the “complex matrix of the 21st century,” the piece is touching, provocative and relatable on so many levels!
Exceptional! Looking out for their next time in Brisbane.
