Mighty Mousedeer of the ForestOrganised by: National Arts Council
Performed by: Maya Dance Theatre - Diverse Abilities Dance Collective (DADC)
** THIS EVENT IS CANCELLED **
Join us to explore the story of the Mighty Mousedeer in search of her family! In the face of danger, how will she call upon her newfound forest friends to overcome the odds?
A new dance-theatre production created in collaboration with DADC dancers, with artistic direction from Kavitha Krishnan and co-direction/choreography by Eva Tey, the dancers take on animal characters for this project as part of MDT's first-ever Arts in Your Neighbourhood programme by National Arts Council!
The MDT-DADC team has been working on the production since January, developing each of their roles through a collaborative process. Jaspreet Kaur, a founding member of DADC, is one of the storytellers working with Karen Lee to bring narration to the story, while June Lin becomes a cheeky, playful monkey which becomes an important turning point of Mighty Mousedeer's journey! Drawing from their training in Bharatanatyam and contemporary movements, the dancers bring the animals of the forest to life through dance with music.
This programme features music composition by Kailin Yong and Raghavendra Rajasekaran, scriptwriter and storyteller Karen Lee, and MDT dancers Shahrin Johry, Eva Tey and Subastian Tan.
An exciting tale suitable for all ages is about to unfold - bring your family and friends down to experience the story of the Mighty Mousedeer!
