This 10th anniversary edition of Binary – International Artists Showcase presents two unforgettable past Festival artists hailed for their commanding stage presence and artistry.

For those who missed its highly-acclaimed 2013 staging at the Festival, here’s your chance to catch Stigma, a dark, enigmatic solo performance by Danish dance artist Kitt Johnson. Hailed as one of the New York Times’ Top 10 Dance Performances of 2003, this extraordinary work has lost none of its visceral power and hypnotic intensity though it has been 20 years since its debut.

Last seen at the Festival in 2014, Japanese choreographer Shintaro Oue presents 談ス (Dan-su), marking the Singapore premiere of this adventurous full-length work. Stripping away all dance rules, the work lets go of perfection to courageously explore states of uncertainty. Both a dance and a “talk”, the choreography develops from the myriad expressions of the body, as its three performers shape-shift in every scene. A reflection on the life of creating and performing, Binary – International Artists Showcasecelebrates the evolution and beauty of these artistic journeys.
