TranscenDance, a fully original work, conceptualised and choreographed by Lakshmi Krishnan under the mentorship of Rama Vaidyanathan, as part of Dance India Asia Pacific's (DIAP) mentorship program, charts the journey of five dancers who navigate one question: 'Who am I?'

TranscenDance brings its audience through a deeply personal reflection of the quintessential life cycle of a dancer. Each dancer sets out on their own distinct life track, grappling with various challenges, all the while trying to find an equilibrium between dance and life; passion and duty. Expressing polarities in emotions; monotony to wonder, fear to love, struggle to balance, the 5 dancers seek to forge their identity through dance and discover the role it plays in every stage of their life. An invitation to reflect on our own journeys, TranscenDance seeks to provide a safe space for discourse on failure, finding balance and personal growth.

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our engagements from live performances & commissioned work, and also minimised audience capacity due to safe management measures at events. Your support will help us negate the production and artistic expenses incurred from making the film, sustain artists and enable us to continue serving the community through the arts.

About the Charity

Established 40 years ago in 1981, Temple of Fine Arts (TFA) is a Performing Arts Institution born out of a need to make the Indian fine arts more accessible and relevant to a new generation.TFA Lalita Kala Company (TFALKC) was started in 2004 as the performing arts wing of TFA. For over 35 years, TFALKC has produced a variety of shows with a focus on showcasing traditional Indian music and dance. Having spearheaded the concept of large-scale productions in Singapore, TFALKC is constantly re-evaluating how it can transport audiences with immersive art experiences, whether through comprehensive sets, elaborate costumes, original music, or multimedia art. We do not charge a fixed admission fee for all our productions as we want to share our passion for the arts, and believe in giving people from all walks of life access to the same. TFALKC has placed a greater emphasis on making the traditional art forms more accessible to both our local audiences, as well as to the younger generations. Continuing in this direction, the era of digital performance creates a new opportunity for us to grow and reach out to a wider audience & adapt to the changing times. Digital productions empower us to conceptualise ideas with newboundaries, and brings us closer to our audience.The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our engagements from live performances & commissioned work. Your support will help us with administrative expenses, sustain artists and enable us to continue serving the community.
