Gateway Theatre Opening Festival is proud to present As It Fades by T.H.E Dance Company.

AS IT FADES by T.H.E Dance Company directed by

As It Fades is choreographer and T.H.E Artistic Director Swee Boon Kuik’s homage to Asian traditions and their fading presence in our lives. Central to the performance is the use of Hainanese and Mandarin folk tunes, a powerful trigger of personal and collective memory encompassing culture, heritage and environment on the societal and individual level.

These are important as they reconnect us to our roots and to gaps in our past, especially when we don’t have any capacity to remember. As It Fades draws upon dialects, folk songs and memories of our dancers and their parents to create a piece of work that speaks with an emotionally charged language; one that is lost, forgotten and buried deep within our bodies. Its dance vocabulary reflects Kuik’s view of the relationship between modern man and traditional culture; that is, a fragmented and incomplete understanding towards the latter, giving rise to the work’s Mandarin subtitle《破碎 与扭曲》- literally translating to ‘broken and twisted’.

Akin to triggering something so deep within us that was once there, As It Fades holds on to memory fragments whether real or imagined, in an urgent call to record, to document and to reconnect with ourselves long forgotten. Since its conception, this landmark 2011 production by T.H.E Dance Company has toured to major venues in France, Italy, China, Denmark and Malaysia.
