From Here On (by SDT) @ Esplanade Theatre

Singapore Dance Theatre (SDT) has announced a Pilot Performance, From Here On, the first of its kind since the life in the arts was interrupted by the pandemic. This exclusive performance will take place later this month, on 23 September 2020 at the Esplanade Theatre. The company has also made the difficult decision to cancel two performances of the season, Ballet Under the Stars and Passages.

This exclusive performance will feature the pas de deux from The Nutcracker Act II, Swan Lake Act II, Don Quixote Act III, as well as Configurations pas deux by Singapore choreographer Choo-san Goh.

This one-day performance will have two showings: 3pm and 7.30pm.

From Here On represents the promise to remain progressive and adaptable in times of change. As such, this production will have all the necessary safety measures in place, including social distancing and limited audience capacities.
