For the very first time, DiverCity presents three new creations by a fresh breed of Singaporean
independent dance artists, in a season showcasing the bold energy and dynamism of our evolving local dance scene.

Adele Goh’s solo performance, created in collaboration with Germaine Cheng, poses searing
questions to rediscover the power, joy and necessity of the body as space. When do we perceive a space to be architectural or habitable? What keeps us holding on to spaces that are exclusive or social, dangerous or safe?

Presented in the Festival’s Off Stage platform in 2018, Amelia Chong’s NAMUH caught the eye of Supercell: Festival of Contemporary Dance’s co-founder and curator Kate Usher, leading to its further development and Australian premiere at this year’s edition of the Brisbane festival. This latest rendition, refined over the last year, sees Chong flipping humanity on its head to investigate the complexities and strangeness of the human form.

Taking us back to our senses is DBL.TAP by Edwin Wee and Rachel Lum. The duo takes on the phenomenon of social media addiction to ask: Are we lost in a fantasised version of who we think we are and are we becoming more disconnected than ever in this era of lauded connectivity?
