Sim, Ricky and Ho, Wen Yang and Lee, Kong-Shen and Chew, Peishan and Lee, Keira (2014) Free. [Production]

Item Type: Production
Title: Free
Synopsis:

FREE is a new dance work from RAW Moves, a company that promotes inter-disciplinary collaborations and dance in the Singapore community. Set up in 2011 and led by Artistic Director Ricky Sim, the company merges dance with different art forms, using artistic innovation and research.
Under this year’s Research & Development Platform, Sim focused on making a movement research work based on the one–word theme ‘free’. His explorations questioned the bridging of one’s own decisions with representations of free will, whilst also inquiring into the act of displaying and play. Sim explored these with his most personal language – through dance and with his company of dancers - intending to demonstrate the passion and energy involved in decision-making.
Featuring eleven (11) dancers, whose contribution was warmly acknowledged by director and choreographer Ricky Sim, the work included original music composed by Ho Wen Yang, with lighting by Lee Kong-Shen.
(Synopsis and Theme)
FREE – the ability to act freely, not limited or controlled, cost nothing, not busy, not attached, self- ruling, open and honest...
We all have an identity – one that may perhaps be fabricated through various contributions, practices, understandings, beliefs and know-hows. But, are we familiar with the intricacy of such data?
An allegorical theme provides a spring to question deeper, its real existence, whilst exploring the creative process with the performers on the on the significance of ‘free’.
