In 1966, the Beatles performed their first and last concert at the Nippon Budokan arena in Tokyo, galvanising a generation of Japanese rock 'n' rollers.

Inspired by this rock 'n' roll culture and together with Japanese guest choreographer, Akanen Miyoshi, Satori (悟り) – Through the Times follows the journey of a girl with multiple identities: a granddaughter with a close relationship with her grandfather; a proud owner of a record shop; and an aspiring singer-songwriter obsessed with rock 'n' roll.

In a time when many settle for performing cover versions, how will she navigate through popular culture to find her own sound?

Satori (悟り) - Through the Times will be an exploration of individuality and aspirations through a creative dance narrative brought to you by members of NUS Dance Blast! under the direction of Patrick Loo.
