Choreographed by Susan Sentler featuring dancers Valerie Lim and Shaun Lim from LASALLE College of the Arts.
Friday, 25 May 6-9PM
Saturday, 26 May 4-7PM
The improvisational, durational performances devised by Susan Sentler in dialogue with the dancers and the artworks in The Body and the Seed map out diverse journeys. The dancers will move from the open space of Edward Clydesdale Thomson’s wallpaper to the density of Mike HJ Chang’s watercolours, changing in and out of corresponding colours as they respond to the tones, climes and compositions of the work.
Susan Sentler is a maker/artist working as a choreographer, teacher, researcher, director, dramaturge and performer. She served as a senior lecturer at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance for 18 years and has taught globally in the field of dance for over 30 years. She has an ongoing collaboration with Glenna Batson on avenues of imagery research. This interest in somatic practices and imagery underpins her pedagogic and overall artistic vision. Sentler’s practice is eclectic and multidisciplinary, with a distinct focus on site-specific gallery or museum contexts, creating ‘responses’ to specific visual art works and exhibitions. She also makes durational installations using objects, sound, moving and still image, as well as absence/presence of the performing body. Her work has been exhibited and performed in the UK, USA, the Netherlands, Italy, Portugal, Ireland and Singapore. She lectures dance at LASALLE College of the Arts in Singapore.
