The third annual showcase featuring the choreographic and dance talents of T.H.E Second Company, the youth wing of leading contemporary dance company T.H.E Dance Company, takes place this 27 – 29 June 2014. liTHE 2014 features a cast of 21 dancers aged 18 – 32, in a triple bill of edgy new creations by emerging choreographers, Lee Ren Xin, Marcus Foo and Goh Shou-Yi, exploring identity through gender, memory and the dancer’s anatomy.
Lee Ren Xin presents the complexities and contradictions of being a young woman in a sleekly modern society, in She’s Chinese, and I’m Twenty-Five. Using the dancer’s body as a toolbox, Goh Shou-Yi explores the combustive possibilities of simultaneously deconstructing and reforming its various parts in 112319892416856. In Notes of Last Thursday, Marcus Foo revisits the logic of past events through 6 original poems written by the choreographer, in order to make sense of the present.
