Asian Festivals Exchange (AFX) returns as Co.Lab.Asians, where dance artists from different countries and backgrounds, including those from Asia, join hands to create original new dance works – in just under six weeks.

A marathon exercise of creativity, communication and ingenuity, these artistic collaborations often breed unexpected, unique performances that span cultures.

In a duet performance, Lee Ren Xin (Malaysia) and Miwa Okuno (Japan) reunite from their 2014 AFX collaboration to delve into the different conscious states of the body – from alienation and disconnection with the physical, to the subtle, layered relationship between two bodies.

How would an angular stone roll? This quirky work, Rolling Stone by Kyungmin Ji (South Korea) uses speed and music to take “rolling” to a whole new level as he explores the mind-boggling phenomenon of sharp-cornered stones rolling as smoothly as soccer balls with dancers from T.H.E Second Company.

Exploring the human condition, Isabella Giustina (Italy) and T.H.E Second Company present Hanging in the Balance. In a world where human beings endeavour to hide our insecurities and fragility, could our perceived flaws be, on occasion, also a form of superhuman power?
