The Rhythm of Us

Singapore Dance Theatre (SDT) & the Singapore Symphony Orchestra (SSO) (Singapore)

long-awaited performance by two of Singapore's pre-eminent arts companies, The Rhythm of Us is a transcendent evening of dance and music for these uncertain times. 

The Rhythm of Us marks the exciting debut collaboration between Singapore Dance Theatre (SDT) and the Singapore Symphony Orchestra (SSO)  one bound to delight fans and new audiences as the companies break new ground in this cross-disciplinary concert. 

Buoyed by a collective longing for the theatre, The Rhythm of Us leads audiences on a lyrical journey with three works, culminating in the remembrance of the transcendence and wonder of live music and dance.  

Three contemporary musical pieces will come to life with new choreography by Artistic Director of SDT Janek Schergen, well-known local choreographer Christina Chan and special guest Pam Tanowitz. Tanowitz’s new work marks the first showing of her work in Singapore.  

The evening opens on a meditative note with William Walton's Passacaglia for Cello, performed by cellist Ng Pei Sian and dancer Chihiro Uchida, and builds up to a crescendo with a performance of Henry Cowell’s Variation on Thirds, featuring a string ensemble and six dancers. 

In the performance’s effervescent finale, expect a brand-new pieceThe Light Behind Us, by local jazz pianist and composer, Chok Kerong, matched by fresh choreography by Christina Chan and a dazzling ensemble of musicians and dancers (as far as safe management measure will allow!). 

 A testament to hope and the indomitable spirit of the arts, The Rhythm of Us is an unprecedented treasure by two of Singapore's most celebrated arts companies and a rare treat for these challenging times.
