Wei-An Hwa

Choreographer & Performer (Asian Festivals Exchange)

(Singapore/Malaysia)

Wei-An started dancing because he thought it was cool. When he saw people in music videos grooving, spinning (often on their heads), flipping, and flying through the air, he wanted to be like them. This eventually led him to study in the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, working in Frontier Danceland, and his current career as an independet artist. During this time, he has had the opportunity to work with choreographers like Pichet Klunchun, Wu Chien Wei, Matej Kejzar, Noa Zuk, Ole Khamchanla, Christina Chan, Shahar Binyamini, Lee Mun Wai and Sita Ostheimer.

He still likes to spin on his head, though, and continues to delve into the worlds of hip-hop dance, b-boying, and tricking, disciplines that feed into his study of The Art of Falling as well as the wider body of his contemporary dance practice.
