Belgian-German contemporary dance choreographer Arco Renz — who recently staged Hanoi Stardust with Nguyen Duy Thành, Vũ Ngọc Khải and the Vietnam National Opera Ballet — shares his list of up and coming contemporary dancers in the region whose steps are worth following.
“This mini directory of contemporary dancers from Southeast Asia is both very subjective and absolutely incomplete. These five artists are inspiring, exciting individuals whom I met while working in the region, and each of them, in his or her own way, is pursuing a thrilling artistic trajectory.
Each of these artists’ work is fascinating on numerous levels. Their diverse practices reveal a dynamic and multifaceted contemporary dance scene in Southeast Asia.”
