Failing the Dance: A Double Bill of Lecture-Performances

ABOUT THIS EVENT

Examining gender roles and cultural custodianship in their respective disciplines, two practitioner-researchers attempt to resolve their ambivalent relationships with their dance forms. Soultari Amin Farid and Nirmala Seshadri revisit their personal histories with Malay dance and bharatanatyam. How have they failed their dance disciplines? How have these forms failed them?

This double-bill features two hybrid performances that blend lecture, dance and video, developed from their collaborative research through Dance Nucleus’ Associate Membership Programme and their work-in-progress showcases at the 5th Asia Network for Dance (AND+) meeting. Each performance comes with supporting essays, images and interesting data made available before the performance and ends with an open discussion with the artists.

Premieres on 24 Oct, Sat, 8pm

(Available online until 31 Oct, Sat, 11.59pm)

Duration: 1hr 40mins
