About Campaign

ends 05 Aug 2018, 11:59 PM
M1 CONTACT Contemporary Dance Festival raises an awareness and appreciation of the multifaceted nature of contemporary dance through education, exchange and creation. You will be looking forward to shows, technique classes, workshops and meeting more 30 dance artists throughout this festival. We hope that you, our loyal supporters, will join us as we strive to play a part in building up Singapore contemporary dance scene.

Why are we embarking on this campaign?

With the volatile economic climate which makes it difficult for us to rely entirely on sponsorships, grants and donations, we hope to seek support from arts-lovers and believers like you. As much as we love to bring you affordable and enjoyable shows, classes and workshops, we also hope to be able to provide better conditions for our local and overseas guest artists, without incurring too much of a deficit as a non-profit organisation. Although it is just a small fraction of our total Festival expenditure, we are aiming to raise SGD5,000 through this campaign, which will be used to offset some of the fees and provisions for our artists.

Would you like to play a part in creating thought-provoking moments and a medley of experiences for our society today?

About the Charity

Described as a dance company 'at the top of its game', The Human Expression Dance Company (T.H.E), along with our semi-professional training arm, T.H.E Second Company, are names synonymous with ground breaking contemporary dance of the highest quality and artistry.

Founded in 2008 by Artistic Director Kuik Swee Boon with 6 members, T.H.E has become a household name in Singapore and the region, having commissioned and performed at most major local arts festivals and in prestigious international festivals such as Les Hivernales Festival in Avignon, France; Oriente Occidente Festival in Rovereto, Italy; SIDance Festival and Seoul Performing Arts Festival in South Korea; amongst others.

With our unique brand of highly physical and kinetic works, T.H.E digs deep into the universal human experience. At the heart of our works lies a connection with heritage and collective history as Singaporeans, juxtaposed with incisive, insightful observations on modern society: elements that set apart our repertoire of original creations. A continual pursuit of authentic expression led Kuik to initiate the "HollowBody" methodology. The practice aims to nurture our dancers as all-rounded performers able to convey the essence of their identity and lived experiences through the full spectrum of physical, emotional, philosophical and meaningful expression.

T.H.E is a registered charity with IPC status.
