In this casual conversation, Sweden-based Japanese Choreographer, Shintaro Oue, shares with us his twenty-year journey as an Asian independent dance artist in Europe.
Fondly known as “CONTACT” to the local dance community, M1 CONTACT Contemporary Dance Festival began in 2010 to promote contemporary dance in Singapore. Since then, it has become a pillar event that brings growth to the local dance scene.
Helmed by T.H.E Dance Company’s Artistic Director, Kuik Swee Boon, this artist-led Festival pursues an attitude of openness where every individual’s point of view is valued. In recent years, it has gradually allowed different voices to enter and shape its programmes.
