In “She Ain’t Heavy, She’s Reaching Into Space”, Faye and Kai perform discussion and discuss performance using a format they created within the last 6 months. The format requires that they discuss what to perform, perform it, then debrief it after. This brings focus to the integral role of discussion in collaborative performance-making. They debate, agree with, and wait for each other’s feelings and thoughts. Are their arguments compositionally interesting enough to be considered a performance in themselves? Is their decision-making process vulnerable or guarded? How real can their discussion be when it is staged?


Come witness Faye and Kai becoming premier self-referential dancer-discussers as they reveal their creative process and blur the line between studio and stage, rehearsal and performance, process and result.

Venue: 72-13 Mohamed Sultan Road, Singapore 239007

“Duets Do-It”
(workshop by Eng Kai Er and Faye Lim)

Immerse yourself in an alternative reflective workshop with Duets Do-It!
Have you ever encountered a dance version of a problem sum? A puzzle, in partner-dance form? In this workshop, we will find ways to dance together through an inquiry-driven process. We will explore partner movement, based on both physical contact in the moment of dancing, and verbal communication before, after and during dancing. There will be mysteries to solve, negotiations to dance through, communication and miscommunication. No prior dance experience needed, just come prepared to dance and talk! This workshop is rooted in Kai’s and Faye’s practice of Contact Improvisation.

Participants are encouraged to sign up as a pair. If you prefer for the organiser to arrange a partner for you, please indicate this in your registration.
