Odyssey Dance Theatre Ltd (Singapore) – The Art of Faking



Inspired by the book ‘The Art of Faking It’, this full length work choreographed by Linnea Ong and Lo Pui Sze, will present an uplifting contemporary dance work with a unique Singaporean voice. Mentored by Mdm Goh Lay Kuan (Cultural Medallion Recipient 1995), Mr Han Chang-Ho (Artistic Director, On & Off Dance Company, South Korea) and Dr. Danny Tan (Artistic Director, Odyssey Dance Theatre Ltd), the high aesthetic quality of The Art Of Faking has received commendations from touring to Mulle International Arts Festival (South Korea), Move Off Festival (Italy) and the International Dance Festival (Bangkok) in 2012.

The Art of Faking will lead the audience through unpredictable passage of twists and turns, where refinement meets aggression, where beauty exists alongside ugliness, in the portrayal of the workings of society though a sensible abstractness of the choreographic theme.

January 2013 will mark the debut full-length staging of The Art of Faking after the one-year development and residency in 3 countries.
