About The Performance
‘Dancing in Place’ is a celebration of dance on site, originally
presented at Rimbun Dahan, and it is now at DPAC and its vicinity. The module
invites dance artists, both local and international, to create works outside
the traditional theatre setting. This first city site is a dialogue between
dance and architecture. Participating dance artists create short works in
response to a particular site, inspired by its architecture or design. From an
industrial walkway to a decorative staircase, audiences are taken out of the
theatre to observe the conversation between dance and the environment.
