Glass House is a celebration of contemporary dance by exciting Asian and American choreographers, both established and emerging. In the title piece, choreographer Melissa Quek blurs the line between public and private spaces. Korean Chung Yeun Soo explores the fragility of life, while Indonesian Jecko Siompo examines the transparency of identity and American Pamela Pietro questions the structure of unity. Together with pieces by international alumni and faculty members Gianti Giadi, Gao Yuwen and Albert Tiong, Glass House is an intensely charged combination that lays bare the inner workings of the individual and society.
Performing the works is a cast of dancers from the School of Dance at LASALLE College of the Arts, which provides an integrated learning experience in contemporary dance, combining rigorous studio training with the study of ideas and expression from a range of Eastern and Western cultural perspectives. It seeks to challenge students’ expressive, intellectual and physical capabilities through the practice of creative processes such as improvisation, choreography and performance, preparing them for professional careers as dance artists, educators and research-driven creators.
