Celebrating young, experimental and boundary-breaking talents, liTHE is T.H.E Second Company's annual showcase. Emerging out of a two-year incubation process, this year’s programme features three works that speak to the turbulent nature of our times.
The Remains of Being by choreographer Nah Jieying is an ode to withering and regeneration. What remains true after everything is experienced and lost? Also a dance artist with the main company, Nah brings her attention to detail and emotional sensitivity to this introspective exploration of the act of holding on and letting go.
What happens when five bodies unravel in one space? Choreographers Goh Jia Yin and Maybelle Lek take off from their 2020 work-in-progress Re:Writing to investigate duality with a group of five. When Five Encounter explores the tensions arising from opposites – solitude and solidarity, light and dark, meeting and parting – through stories, dialogues, and encounters within the realm of familiar and unfamiliar spaces.
With a reflective nod toward man's challenging and oft-times destructive relationship with nature, Kawayan, meaning "bamboo" in Tagalog, is a call to resilience. Choreographer and T.H.E's dance artist Klievert Jon Junia Mendoza's fluid movement style evokes the flexibility and strength of bamboo which stands strong amidst calamities.
