Who are the giants that we, the younger generation, stand on?
  Are they the pioneers of the past?
   Are they the systems and structures upon which we build our dreams?
    Do we have the courage and determination to free ourselves from them?

As we look towards the future, we ask the dreamers of the past and the present – have the dreams (or the ideals) changed? Perhaps, by understanding our giants, we can come to realise where we can, and want to be.

On the Shoulders of Giants is the premiere of a full length work inspired by Goh Poh Seng's novel If We Dream Too Long and features 30 young dancers from NUS Dance Synergy under the creative direction of NAC Young Artist Award recipient (2017) Yarra Ileto, together with Albert Tiong and Goh Shou Yi.
