Singapore Dance Theatre presents Passages Contemporary Season 2019 @ Esplanade Theatre

Singapore Dance Theatre (SDT) will be presenting its annual full contemporary season of the year, Passages. This year, there will be two works that were previously made especially for SDT, with Natalie Weir’s Bittersweet and Toru Shimazaki’s Blue Snow, as well as Val Caniparoli’s Swipe. There will also be a world premiere from an exciting Australian choreographer, Lucas Jervies, working with SDT for the first time.

Bittersweet is a pas de deux created by Natalie Weir for SDT. Natalie Weir is an established and acclaimed choreographer, known for her highly physical partner work, her organic movement style and her touching insight into human nature.

Featuring a cast of four men and three women, Swipe is packed with originality, utilising every possible extremity, with solos, couples, trios, quartets and the full cast. The piece, in its abstract form, brings out the depth of personalities of the dancers.

Blue Snow was developed as a choreographic work meant to be an impressionistic journey, giving a sensation and emotional feeling of moving toward something that is always just slightly out of reach. The dancers are looking forward, as if to a horizon, that is beautiful, but unattainable.

From electrifying to soulful works, this Season is set to grip you with its captivating line-up and leave you at the edge of your seats.
