M1 CONTACT Festival 2019 - Off Stage


Off Stage is a no-holds-barred, intimate studio showcase of new works-in-progress by local and regional dance artists.

Shifting the focus away from the finished product, Off Stage invites you to share in the artists’ creative journeys, and to respond and critique their works in a session of performances and live discussion. You’ll also get to exchange views with international festival directors and programmers in attendance.

Watch H A S E R by local choreographer Syimah Sabtu, as she challenges societal norms and the co-existence of femininity and masculinity. A Singaporean dance artist with the Hofesh Shechter Company, Zunnur Zhafirah’s introspective work, Luna(s), reflects upon intimacy and the process of transcending the ego, through the tantra method of soul gazing.

Michelle Lim, the first Singaporean dancer at The Juilliard School, presents H O M E S I C K, an exploration of displacement, identity and belonging. SILA by Indonesian choreographer Moh Hariyanto adapts elements from ritual culture that connects the body with God.
