Looking at the ever-changing and unpredictable landscape around us, one may feel overwhelmed to navigate the challenges and uncertainty ahead. This year, Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay’s da:ns festival reflects on these liminal states and invites us to immerse ourselves in where dance takes us. This is also pertinent as after this edition, we will be transforming the festival into an exciting season of dance programmes spread out through the year, each with specific themes that allow for richer appreciation of this artform.
After a hiatus of international dance productions touring to Singapore, this year’s festival features diverse works which have tenaciously survived through the pandemic. In Tree of Codes, audiences will be transported into a world of visual and musical overdrive from three visionaries—multi-award-winning choreographer Wayne McGregor, Mercury Prize-winning producer Jamie xx and renowned visual artist, Olafur Eliasson. The long-awaited Esplanade commission and co-production, No. 60 by Pichet Klunchun Dance Company, finally arrives in Singapore after its tour in Europe.
When: 13 - 23 Oct 2022,
