It is my pleasure to welcome all of you to Singapore’s Xposition ‘0’ Contemporary Dance Fiesta (XPO), which has made its mark since 2001.
With great courage, we have realized XPO, a major dance event in Singapore and many other cities across two decades. We are grateful for the staunch support and strong participation of numerous world-class dance companies & institutions.
As the founder, I’m proud that XPO has successfully sustained its key objective to excite and encourage dance enthusiasts with diverse professional productions and events that promote contemporary aesthetics through time.
XPO made its quantum leap with Singapore’s first dance festival on tour to Seoul, (South Korea) in 2011. Many exemplary Singaporean and international works were featured in various cities. This has elevated the festival for global dance celebration, forging closer diplomatic & cultural ties with many countries through contemporary dance. XPO features distinguished companies with many initiatives by local and international companies at its Fringe Events, Outreach, Dance Residency and Educational Programmes, reaching out to audiences from all walks of life.
We are grateful that XPO has garnered strong support from embassies, sponsors, dance and arts companies, and local and international government agencies. Thank you so much for making this pioneer Singapore’s International Contemporary Dance Festival, a notable and profound event in Singapore and abroad.
We look forward to welcome you to XPO!
