Malcolm, do you know what overseas companies are expected to visit Singapore in the near future?

Hi Kevin,<P><BR>Unfortunately, I have absolutely no idea at this point. <P>Usually, the bulk of the foreign dance companies will come to Singapore during our annual Festival of Arts in June - that's when the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, STREB, Ultima Vez, H.Art Chaos and others came this year. Isolated tours are rare, but do happen. Last year, we had ABT, Tanzcompagnie Rubato and Sasha Waltz (with the Berlin Schaubuhne) from last year. Earlier this year, Ballet Biarritz came with Thierry Malandain's <I>Nutcracker</I>.<P>But what I do know right now is Amanda Miller's <I>Art of Fugue</I>, by the Ballett Freiburg Pretty Ugly and Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, will be performed in Singapore on September 11. On October 26, Anna Huber will be giving a solo performance entitled <I>Unsichtbarst</I>. The Goethe Institute in Singapore seems to bring in quite a few German dance companies. <BR>

Malcolm, I have met Deng Fuquan, the writer of that article which you pointed out. He came to Hong Kong last year to attend a dance critics' conference chaired by Marcia Siegel.

There's a features piece in the Asian Wall Street Journal this weekend on the opening in Oct. of the Esplanade cultural complex in Singapore, which will offer a new home to the Singapore Dance Theatre. The company will perform a specially commissioned work "Reminiscing The Moon" at the opening. The link below is for the newspaper's subscribers.

As reported in <I>The Straits Times</I>, 23 Aug. 2002, SDT dancer Kuik Swee Boon (featured in CD's front-page image) will be joining Nacho Duato's Compañía Nacional de Danza in Madrid on a 12-month contract. This August triple bill marks his last performance in Singapore.

SDT-trained dancer to join Spanish troupe
By Cheah Ui-hoon

WHILE comments have been made about how many of Singapore Dance Theatre's (SDT) dancers are 'foreign talent', the flow of talent is a two-way street, with locally-trained dancers also going out to gain more exposure and experience.

Malaysian Kuik Swee Boon, who came to the dance company with barely any formal ballet training 10 years ago, has been accepted by the Compania Nacional de Danza de Espana, or what's better known as Nacho Duato's dance company, in Spain.

Is this the Spanish company that is based in Madrid? I believe I saw them a few years ago and very much enjoyed them. They gave classical ballet a Spanish flair which was quite wonderful.

Yes, Basheva, that company is based in Madrid. I saw them in Duato's works several years ago when they toured Hong Kong.

Speaking of the Esplanade, Basheva's namesake, the Batsheva Dance Company is coming for the opening too!

Malcolm did you see the NUS Dance Ensemble's recent performance? I thought it was very good, the standard was much higher than expected and of course Zaini's choreography is wonderful.

Shazna and Malcolm, I think that the St. Petersburg Ballet Theatre (not the Kirov though) will be at the Esplanade this Dec. Please check.

I can't find any mention of the St Petersburg Ballet Theatre but I've just discovered that the National Ballet of China will be part of the opening festival too and performing Zhang Yimou's Raise the Red Lantern from 31 October to 3 November. Very interesting, I definitely want to watch this.
