Commissioned by Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre and presented by Dance Ensemble Singapore Arts Company (DES Arts), in collaboration with Sri Warisan Som Said Performing Arts, Whispers from the Dragon’s Teeth Gate is a dance-drama that brings us into a mystical realm of rediscovering our Island’s heritage, as we commemorate the bicentennial year. The full-length original dance production features influences by renowned Indonesian choreographer Didik Nini Thowok (artistic advisor), and incorporates the touches of Mr. Kua Bak Lim (historical advisor), Mr. Han Laoda (script advisor), and Peranakan costume designer Mr Raymond Wong (costume advisor).
Singapore has many known names throughout our recorded history. As a young Independent State, our inhabitance has continued to mature and cultivate shared memories with our neighbours in Southeast Asia. Having transformed from an island of immigrants to a country with multi-ethnic cultures, the harmonious coexistence amongst our people is the fruit of our cultural success accumulated over 200 years.
Tickets available through SISTIC.
