Meet the next generation of dance talents in Singapore from LASALLE College of the Arts and Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA), as they present an array of short dance pieces by local and international choreographers.

For the 2017 edition of the festival, LASALLE presented three vastly different choreographic voices – a moving excerpt of Silences We Are Familiar With (da:ns festival 2012 commission) by Kuik Swee Boon, a stark and intense choreography by Lee Jae-young (Korea), as well as a commissioned work-in-progress showcase of a two-week residency with Martin Schick (Switzerland/Germany).

In 2018, LASALLE dancers presented a study of juxtapositions, contrasting the explosive hip-hop languages of Olé Khamchanla (France/Laos) and Sufri Juwahir with fluid movements of Jacky Yu (Hong Kong) and Susan Yeung.

This programme reflects LASALLE's cosmopolitan and cutting-edge approach to art that produces performers who expand and challenge the boundaries of dance both physically and conceptually.
