Synopsis:

Lest We Forget is a dance production that seeks to invigorate the ways in which we define the legacy of our forefathers—bequeathed to us through our desires to dream and strive for our existence as inhabitants and custodians of our Island, Singapore.

Through a series of choreographed dance presentations by the Dance Ensemble Singapore (DES) to commemorate its 25th anniversary, we are reminded to do whatever it takes to honour the sacrifices of our forefathers. Reminisce memories of Katong and Joo Chiat, and rediscover our vibrant Nanyang heritage that should not be forgotten.

Artistic Director: Yan Choong Lian (DES – Founder and Artistic Director)
Scriptwriter: Edmond Wong
Choreographer: Cai Shiji (DES Arts – Artistic Director) and Goh Yan Dan (DES – Resident Choreographer)
Performances by: DES Arts and Fusion Arts

新加坡岛国文化的形成,乃由四面八方移民带来,华族移民聚集牛车水,新加坡河一带。巫族聚集芽笼而居,印族聚集实龙岗,土生华人则落户于加东、如切一带。祖辈安居乐业后,各自族群也把他们故乡风土文化延续到聚居处,形成各自种族文化的特色。

《如斯如切》舞蹈专场,发掘新加坡土生华人短短几十年自然形成的南洋文化,提醒岛国人民,除了保留族群各自文化外,我们更应让自然浑成之南洋文化发扬光大,新加坡聚舞坊创团25年,愿为南洋文化留下新篇章,作为庆祝银禧之作。
