The existence of traditional arts had been constantly challenged by globalisation and modernisation. Many cannot escape the fate of being obsoleted and henceforth undergo substantial changes to stay relevant especially among the younger generation. As traditional arts contemporise, question has been raised as to how much it can evolve to stay relevant to present day’s audience members, yet retaining its original integrity.

“Emergence 2015” is a platform for aspiring Chinese dance practitioners to explore and experiment traditional Chinese dance choreography in our modern times. Through an open call, we had select five new works that portray good artistic quality and uniqueness to be presented in a Black Box Theatre.

There will be a dialogue session to bring practitioners together for discussion, sharing and to encourage them to open up to issues beyond their individual practice after the performance.
