Background

Xposition ‘O’ Contemporary Dance Fiesta since 2001

The biennial Xposition ‘O’ Contemporary Dance Fiesta has placed strong emphasis on professional dance-making and its impact on the local and regional dance scenes. With strong international presence in a major local dance event, the public continues to see lots of synergy, participation, cultural exchanges and dance appreciation for the local and international contemporary dance in this iconic event in Asia and Europe.

Over 7 editions across fourteen years, the festival has expanded its reach by presenting more than 26 international dance companies/ organisations and more than 200 artistes. Acclaimed works were presented at different venues, from Black Box to major proscenium stages like the University Cultural Centre Hall, and large scale outdoor events which are made accessible to all. The range of global dances from around the world has also helped to realign the understanding of Contemporary Dance in Singapore and Asia.

In November 2011, this festival has gained new height with ‘Global Dance in Unison I’, presenting the first Singapore‘s Dance Festival on tour to South Korea during 6th Xposition ‘O’ Contemporary Dance Fiesta which was supported by Singapore Embassy in Seoul, The Republic of Korea Embassy in Singapore, National Arts Council, Korea Arts Council, Singapore International Foundation, Dance Association of Korea, South Korea’s Onstage Arts Management & Trade and many others. This new festival direction has provided creative impetus for concise platforms to present Singaporean and international works to more global audiences, which enhances greater depth in international collaboration, promoting sustainable and more cohesive cultural exchanges between artistes and people of different countries.

In 2013, ‘Global Dance in Unison II’ was presented in 6 cities in Germany, Italy, South Korea and Singapore.
