As we bid goodbye to the wonderful image of Miki Orihara and Tadej Brdnik in Martha Graham's <I>Embattled Garden</I>, which has adorned Criticaldance's front page for 2 months (now archived in our gallery), we welcome our latest cover image, courtesy of photographer Robin Chee and <A HREF="" TARGET=_blank><B>Singapore Dance Theatre</B></A> (SDT).<P>Xia Hai Ying (on top) and Kuik Swee Boon -- their names follow the surname-first tradition in Chinese names -- are the dancers featured in this photo. As some of SDT's most featured, most experienced dancers, they have taken on principal roles in full-length story ballets like <I>Giselle</I>, <I>Coppélia</I> and Petal Miller-Ashmole's <I>The Red Shoes</I>, as well as main roles in the one-act ballets that the company is more noted for.<P>This particular photo was taken in 2000, during a performance of Jeffrey Tan's <I>Façade</I> (1999) at SDT's popular "Ballet Under The Stars" (BUTS) season, an outdoor performance series held at the lawn on Fort Canning Park. Set to Samuel Barber's familiar "Adagio for Strings", <I>Façade</I> was most recently performed this month for this year's BUTS season.<P>For more samples of Robin Chee's photography, visit <A HREF="" TARGET=_blank><B>his website</B></A>.
