Podcast 6: da:ns lab – What You See Is Not What I Meant

Duration: 27 minutes

Choreographer and performance makers Susan Sentler and Chan Sze Wei recently participated in the Esplanade’s da:ns lab 2016 workshop, facilitated by daniel kok. Unlike previous workshops, in which processes of making were central, this year’s lab enshrined the viewer’s gaze. We talk with  Susan and Sze Wei about their experiences during the three-day lab.
