Asia-Europe Cultural Festival: 2023 | X by Olimpia Fortuni and Katatonic Silentio

Contemporary Dance (duration: 50m)
Friday, 27 October 2023, 8 pm
Asian Civilisations Museum, River Terrace

Sound, body, movement, natural and artificial architectures are tools for this compositional performance. The title “X” represents the symbol whose crossed lines are the bridge to communicate with each other. It is a journey in which the performers, in the role of researchers/explorers, accompany the audience to another place for a sensory experience towards their inner world.
The project is in continuous transformation thanks to the margin of non-definition that allows constant research. For the Asia-Europe Cultural Festival 2023, the Malaysian choreographer and dancer January Low who has over 30 years of experience in Indian classical dance, will join the performance. This new version of the piece will highlight the cultural exchange between Asian and Western culture.
