Delighting audiences since 2017, this family-friendly, free public showcase of contemporary dance works returns with an inclusive programme, accompanied by a young performer with Down Syndrome.
This year, Dance at Dusk celebrates our shared capacity for movement and our human desire for self-expression and communication with two unique line-ups, including The Crossing by Gavin Webber and Kayah Guenther from The Farm and T.H.E Dance Company’s signature classic Silences We Are Familiar With.
The Crossing explores the human need for self-expression from two different artists and the meeting point between them. With the support of his mentor Gavin, Kayah uses dance and improvisation to express the way he sees the world as a young man with Down Syndrome, in a moving performance that reveals the unique bond between them.
Inspired by personal reflections on love and life, choreographer Kuik Swee Boon’s signature 2012 work, Silences We Are Familiar With, last seen in Singapore in 2015, will be performed by dancers from T.H.E Dance Company, who draw on their own insecurities and personal triumphs to breathe life into the movement.
