“”Open, diverse and accessible.”” The Straits Times
M1 Open Stage + DiverCity has been hailed for its “open, diverse and accessible” curation, where up-and-coming choreographers evoke the “power, potential and universality of contemporary dance for all audiences” (The Straits Times).
M1 Open Stage
This year, with an increased number of international programme collaborators, M1 Open Stage features innovative and exhilarating works by a diverse range of dance artists over two nights.
Annamaria Ajmone (Italy), Marcus Foo and Shou Yi Goh (Singapore), Mai Kubota (Japan), Jinyook Ryu and Hyeayoon Kim (South Korea), and Gil Kerer and Korina Fraiman (Israel).
Albert Tiong (Singapore), Chey Jurado (Spain), Ruri Mito (Japan), Tom Tsai (USA/Taiwan), and Logyee Jung (South Korea).
Are we all living to die? Influenced by Albert Camus’ philosophy of “the Absurd”, Singapore-based choreographers Peishan Chiew and Wen-Chun Liu explore the absurdity that every living being faces death eventually in a new work for DiverCity. Created in collaboration with Taiwanese film artist Yan-Hong Chen and local dramaturg Kim Seng Neo, Should I Kill Myself Or Have A Cup Of Coffee? visualises the choreographers’ personal musings on this absurdity.”
