LASALLE-SIA presents Transitions Dance Company in Singapore



LASALLE-SIA presents UK¡¯s Transitions Dance Company in Singapore

6 ¨C 7 July 2005

LASALLE-SIA College of the Arts is pleased to present the Transitions Dance Company from the UK in their premiere performance in Singapore.

Founded by Bonnie Bird (1914 ¨C 1995), one of the original members of the Martha Graham Dance Company, Transitions Dance Company is renowned for its commissioning of new work from artists who represent the very best in up-and-coming choreographic talent from across the world.
For over twenty years, the company has entertained international audiences in over 130 venues in Europe, USA and Asia.
With a reputation for explosive performances of contemporary dance that are physical, humourous, witty and intellectual, Transitions Dance Company tours with a 2005 programme of five works including four new commissions from a collection of international choreographers including Rafael Bonachela (Spain), Alicia Herrero Simon (Spain), Thomas Lehmen (Germany), Henry Montes (USA) and Crystal Pite (Canada). Dance Europe (2004) calls their work ¡°¡­choreography which captures your attention and doesn¡¯t let it go¡­¡±
Transitions Dance Company is supported artistically and administratively by Laban under the Directorship of Professor Anthony Bowne. Laban is one of the world¡¯s leading conservatoires for contemporary dance artist training.
Transitions Dance Company¡¯s performance in Singapore also marks the first working partnership between Laban and LASALLE-SIA involving creative and academic exchanges.
In January 2005, LASALLE-SIA appointed Professor Bowne as its first visiting Chair of Dance in the Faculty of Performing Arts & Integrated Studies. In Singapore, Professor Bowne will be conducting a lighting seminar for LASALLE-SIA students. The Company will also be having workshops with LASALLE-SIA¡¯s dance students on the choreographic process and repertoire to offer an insight into the creation process.
Says Venka Purushothaman, Dean, Faculty of Performing Arts & Integrated Studies at LASALLE-SIA, ¡°LASALLE-SIA¡¯s partnership with Laban is one of the many that the College is establishing to offer our students a wider exposure and experience of the international arts scene. Transition¡¯s performance here promises to be a very exciting offering by outstanding international choreographers and brilliant young dancers that all will enjoy.¡±
