Singapore Dance Theatre (SDT) will be presenting its annual full contemporary season of the year, Passages, from 28 – 30 October at the Esplanade Theatre Studio. The Straits Times hopes Timothy Harbour’s Another Energy “remains firmly in SDT’s repertoire” (2016), and Seeing Dance reviews Ma Cong’s Shadow’s Edge as “visually, an interesting dialectic” (2016). Timothy Rushton, the former Artistic Director and Choreographer of Danish Dance Theatre, will also create his very first work for SDT to sum up Passages 2018 as one the most enthralling contemporary season of the year.
“Passages Contemporary season has always had its unique personality and profile within the SDT performance calendar. It had most often been used to introduce choreographers that are new to our audiences and for the presentation of either world premieres or company premieres. It is a place that fills the spirit of the initial concept of SDT perfectly. Many of the ballets from Passages become significant parts of our permanent repertoire and we present them on tour or in future seasons.” says Artistic Director Janek Schergen.
Schergen adds “This year, we have two works that were previously made especially for SDT, with Timothy Harbour’s Another Energy and Ma Cong’s Shadow’s Edge and the introduction of a well-known European choreographer, Tim Ruston, with a world premiere work for this Passages season. This is Tim’s first time working with SDT, but previously he has been the Artistic Director and choreographer of Danish Dance Theatre. Tim’s choreography has been performed all throughout Europe with his own company, as well as in works for Royal Danish Ballet. It is very exciting to have him represented within our repertoire.”
