M1 CONTACT Contemporary Dance Festival - Dance at Dusk
A highlight at the Festival since 2017, Dance at Dusk is a family-friendly, free performance showcasing the many facets of contemporary dance. This year’s event returns with excerpts from one of Kuik Swee Boon’s most contemplative works, Silence. Since it was first commissioned by Esplanade da:ns Festival in 2007, Silence has continued to evolve and was last seen in Singapore a decade ago, when it was presented as a full-length work at the Esplanade Theatre as part of T.H.E Dance Company’s first anniversary. Now performed by dancers from T.H.E Second Company, the timeless piece continues to deal with the concept of communication breakdown, and investigates the depths of one’s connection to the surroundings in this age of information overload. *As part of the Festival’s efforts to explore the accessibility of contemporary dance performances, Dance at Dusk will be adapted to encompass greater engagement and participation this year.
