Goodman Arts Centre Blackbox

Having last year’s EMERGENCE put on hold, the Singapore Chinese Dance Theatre (SCDT) is glad to share that its 7th series of EMERGENCE will be happening this year on 10 December 2021 (8 pm) and 11 December 2021 (3 pm & 7 pm) at Goodman Arts Centre’s Blackbox Theatre.


EMERGENCE is an initiative by SCDT aimed to provide an avenue for budding choreographers to develop their artistic skills and have an opportunity to present their works to and be recognised by an audience.


The theme for this year’s EMERGENCE is “Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow”, and we will be seeing 11 participating choreographers, the most since its establishment in 2014, exploring and experimenting with various ways of incorporating Chinese dance elements into their works.
