T.H.E Second Company takes centrestage with three talented choreographers
Anthea Seah, Goh Shou Yi and Marcus Foo culminating 3 years of process, research and collaboration in the triple bill showcase liTHE 2019.
liTHE is T.H.E Second Company’s annual showcase featuring the diverse backgrounds,
bodies and perspectives of more than 20 passion-driven youth dancers, as well as its burgeoning in-house choreographic talent. In 2017, Associate Artistic Director Silvia Yong and Artistic Director Kuik launched a 3-year effort to concentrate resources on incubating three choreographers; Second Company Associate Artists Goh Shou Yi and Marcus Foo, and former Second Company member and current main company artist Anthea Seah.
This 8th edition of liTHE is therefore the climax of a dedicated creative process, enriched over time by the consistent presence of Lighting Designer Liu Yong Huay and various dance, music, costume and dramaturgical co-creators and artistic conspirators.
Audiences are inspired by the youth company’s efforts, particularly the teenagers and young adults aged 15 – 24 who form the majority of liTHE’s return viewers.
