Singapore Dance Theatre (SDT) will be presenting its annual full contemporary season of the year – Passages 2018. The Passages Contemporary season has most often been used to introduce choreographers that are new to our audiences and for the presentation of either world premieres or company premieres.

This year, there will be two works that were previously made especially for SDT, with Timothy Harbour’s Another Energy and Ma Cong’s Shadow’s Edge and the introduction of a well-known European choreographer, Tim Rushton, with a world premiere work for this Passages season.

Shadow’s Edge (Ma Cong)
This piece and its music were created and selected especially to highlight the diverse cultures and talents possessed by the dancers in SDT. The powerful music, the inspiration for this piece, is a collaboration between Bryce and Kronos Quartet, and seems to take the listener through phases of change and progression. And so the movements reflect the same: onward. The talented dancers effortlessly portray this concept and take the theme to a whole new level by adding their own energy and awareness to the music.

Another Energy (Timothy Harbour)
Accompanied by John Adams kinetic ‘Shaker Loops’, this dance is primarily about Energy, its containment within us and the emotion of its release.

World Premiere by Timothy Rushton
Timothy Rushton is a British choreographer and artistic leader of the Copenhagen-based Danish Dance Theatre, Denmark’s largest modern dance company. While a dancer at the Royal Danish Ballet he became interested in pursuing a choreographic career and decided to quit dancing. Rushton quickly made his mark as a choreographer, combining classical ballet technique with modern dance.
