1 Tell us something inspiring about yourself.
I am always finding new ways of expressing myself through performance and pushing my physical and conceptual ideas of dance.
2 What motivated you to take up the challenge to be part of RE/PLAY Dance Edit?
I’ve never worked with TheatreWorks before and being in this production will challenge me in looking at dance in a new perspective. Every choreographer will bring in their cultural identity and performance background and I will get a glimpse of Japanese works through dancing in his piece.
3 Being part of this Singapore-Japan collaboration, what do you look forward to?
I look forward to making new friends with the Japanese artists and understanding each other’s culture through conversations during and after rehearsal process.
4 By the end of the production, what do you think will resonate in you?
I think the idea of ‘dance/not dance’ in performance will resonate to me. It will definitely push the perspectives of dance and I can bring that knowledge and experience into my practice.
