Season 2024-25 Website Banner.jpeg

Over the last ten years, Singapore Chinese Dance Theatre (SCDT) has withstood various challenges and we are deeply thankful for the enduring support that we have received. The overarching theme for this dance season, "A Symphony of Life," paints a vivid picture akin to a flowing river, collecting the shared efforts, sweat, and passion of everyone involved in SCDT’s journey.

As we dance within the currents of this symbolic river, we use the art of dance to articulate the intricate rhythm of life, allowing us to feel the gentle ripples of time. Gratitude is extended towards the struggles of the past, and each obstacle overcome is a testament to our collective resilience.

 

With optimism and excitement, we look forward to the unfurling future, likened to the blossoming of flowers. Together, hand in hand, let us celebrate and embrace the dawn of a new decade in the rich tapestry of Chinese dance. We express heartfelt thanks to everyone who has been part of this unforgettable journey, contributing to the vibrant story of the Singapore Chinese Dance Theatre.

A Symphony of Life
 

6 & 7 September 2024

3pm & 8pm

Singtel Waterfront Theatre at Esplanade

"A Symphony of Life" In collaboration with Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay explores Singapore as a garden city that embraces a rich tapestry of cultures. The dance poem centres around a meandering river, symbolizing perpetual flow, where banks become a shared space for elements, people, and resources to coexist harmoniously—a vital artery sustaining an unceasing life force.

The performance artfully portrays individuals uniting to form a formidable team. "A Symphony of Life" conveys a profound message of unity, mutual support, and shared life processes under a common purpose. This dance, embodying the metaphor of the river of life, underscores the strength found in collaboration, prompting contemplation on how collective efforts can lead to a more beautiful and dynamic existence.
