If we were to traverse the paths of the past, would we be happier?
If we were to attempt what was done in the past, would things turn out differently?
If It’s Now is inspired by the many bittersweet stories of women from different eras and the labels that they have borne, and the work explores the journey of women through time.
Co-choreographed by acclaimed dance practitioners Neo Jenny and Benedict Soh, Artistic Director and Creative Director respectively of SCDT, If It Now reflects on the role and identity of a woman through an exploration of traditional female stereotypes and a celebration of femininity. The past and present meet in a showcase of classical Chinese dance and an evolving contemporary style that is a hallmark of SCDT.
