Transposition showcases an exciting selection of dance choreography by local and international artists. From James Sutton (USA) comes Salve Regina. While the title refers to a Latin prayer of mercy and salvation, the work addresses wider universal themes of hope, community and human endurance in the face of loss. White Light by Liz Lea (UK/Australia) explores light and space, with the ‘white light’ bringing about a sense of peace, purpose and unity.
Also featured are a new work by Albert Tiong (Singapore/Malaysia) and a dance film by Roberta Shaw (USA), from which this showcase adopts its title. Shaw’s Transposition has dancers moving inside, on, in and around the various architectural highlights of the LASALLE award-winning campus and features inter-faculty collaboration between the School of Dance and Video Art.
These major dance artists challenged the performance skills of LASALLE students and extended their abilities as capable and versatile dancers. They also provided opportunities for the young dancers to participate, communicate and establish networks with renowned choreographers from different parts of the dance world.
