Lah Lah Land

Description

NAFA through its Dance Programme collaborates once again with I’m Soul Inc to present Lah Lah Land, a performance that seeks to inform and to encourage positive social change through challenging our notion of inclusivity.


What inspires us to tolerate and accept one another as unique individuals? What motivates society to segregate based on stereotypes? What is normal? We explore these concepts in the final presentation of the Dance Movement Therapy class of 2017. Using juxtaposed images of affirmation vs rejection, intimacy vs alienation, the dancers expose the possibilities of living with special abilities and the realities we all face daily when encountering people different from us.


Registration starts at 6pm. Come early to enjoy participatory music making by I'm Soul Inc, songs by Merry Melodies, APSN Chaoyang School's choir, mandala painting by Philosophise and pottery making by Centre Pottery. Showtime is 7pm.

Last year’s performance gives a taste of what you can look forward to.
