What's On



SIDES returns in an augmented form to your screens this coming new year!

SIDES 2020 is an introspective double bill of original creations by two Singaporean dance artists. Zhuo Zihao crafts a microscopic view set up into questioning the peculiarity of sentiments in B(_).I( _).O(_). In Apple Diary, Chiew Peishan juxtaposes personal history with absurdity in a positive confrontation of the past, where a surrealistic re-enactment of traumatic memories meditates on the role of power and ego in cultivating a wall of silence.

Reviews of SIDES 2020




Curated in 2013, SIDES is Frontier Danceland’s annual performance platform that brings together both international and local choreographers to explore the various tangents of contemporary dance. The diversity of cultures and influences provides stimuli for the artists’ exploration of new frontiers in embodying a unique versatility that is the hallmark of Frontier Danceland.

Choreographers usually spend an artist-in-residence period of two to four weeks with the company artist to create or restage works for each season. Frontier Danceland has since presented the works of Chang Chien-Kuei (Taiwan), Lee Mun Wai (Singapore), Christina Chan (Singapore), Shahar Binyamini (Israel), Sita Ostheimer (Germany), Shahrin Johry (Singapore), Stephanie Lake (Australia), Wallie Wolfgruber (USA), Noa Zuk (Israel), Olé Khamchanla (France/Laos), Jereh Leong (Singapore), Gabrielle Nankivell and Luke Smiles (Australia),  Annie Vigier and Franck Apertet (France), as well as Richard Chappell (UK) and Faye Tan (Singapore).
