da:ns festival 2019
Time Out says
Bringing the world’s best dancers and productions to Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, da:ns festival returns in October for its 14th edition. Whether you’re a dance lover or dipping your (pointe) toes into the scene for the first time, the 11-day festival will open your mind, lift your spirit, and get your body moving with a series of performances and workshops.
The world’s most revered dance productions and artists take centrestage at Esplanade Theatre. Catch international ballet superstar Carlos Acosta as he brings his Cuban dance company Acosta Danza to Singapore for the first time on October 10 and 11. Celebrated UK choreographer Hofesh Shechter’s Grand Finale on Oct 18 and 19 is spectacularly bold, full of anarchic energy and cinematic atmosphere. The production’s many accolades include a nomination for an Olivier Award.
For intimate and thought-provoking works, Eisa Jocson hijacks Disney’s Snow White to reveal deeper layers to the beloved character, while Raimund Hoghe challenges notions of beauty in Pas de Deux. Finally, don’t miss award-winning street crews from USA, Japan and Taiwan, who go FULL OUT! in a celebration of street dance.
If you think you can da:ns, take part in masterclasses by the Hofesh Shechter Company or the dancers from FULL OUT!
