Three dancers search their dance memories for the moment where memory and technique become the basis for a dance without identity. They focus on specific parts of their bodies in order to understand their movements as whole. And as their bodies speak different choreographic languages, tracing a journey of the accumulated dance memories over time, deconstructed traces of hip hop, Butoh, traditional Asian and contemporary dance meld together to reveal a unique new aesthetic—a new dance language born out of intellect and emotion. Accompanied by a soundscape of organic and electronic sound and melodies, Focus is an exploration of dance memories in the conscious and subsconcious mind. It seeks to blend the different dance vocabularies of a multicultural society to create a dance language that is at the same time unique and reminiscent of its origins. 19 & 20 Apr, 8pm at Esplanade Theatre Studio.
