Parallel World is an international collaboration and independent project with various artists and community collaborators, showcasing a series of creative, digital and dance works of contemporary ideas and movement concepts.
Parallel World is the first edition under the Reimagining Residency project, in partnership with The MOTUS Company from Siena, Italy. This project is also in collaboration with Move Off Festival (2021) organised by MOTUS and Castelnuovo Berardenga City Council of Italy. Parallel World: Picturing Dance is the community initiative under the international collaboration project umbrella, Parallel World.
The initiative is in partnership with Touch Community Services (Singapore), with the aims to promote and cultivate creativity and curiosity among the individuals by means of artistic self-expression, especially for those in their silver age. Through varied modalities and creative mediums inspired by contemporary dance works and movement research, we hope to encourage the participants to keep looking forward to each day, as well as to engage in a meaningful and enjoyable activity that allows them to connect with others within the community. The community art exhibition was held in conjunction with World Alzheimer’s Month and World Mental Health Day, launching concurrently with the Parallel World (Italy) art exhibition at TINAIA museum this September 2021.
