Dance-Reviews: Evocation ‘06
That’s the word to describe evocation’06. Seriously, its really freaking darn good. So good that i went for both nights of their concert. In case some of you are not aware, Evocation is an annual dance showcase, put up by NUS Dance Ensemble. This is their 4th year running and it just keep getting better! It actually serves as a platform for budding choreographers to showcase their originality and boy were the originality seen.
One of my personal favorites was the first item which started the concert kicking.. a broadway jazz styled piece -Right Now. Imgaine this, a huge group of girls, in their heels or boots and in that black, sexy corset, teasing the crowd. Not as much technical moves as some of the other pieces but entertainment value — full marks! A really great way of starting the showcase!!
Most of the dances involved at least 6 dancers and some had at least 20 dancers but there was this particular item which only had 2 female dancers in it. Its a piece which was really intense and captivating, telling a story of attraction and desire two girls shared. Impeccable techniques and the dancers conveyed their emotions through their expressions and the choreography. Even though there were only 2 dancers, they totally filled the whole stage with their leaps and successive pirouettes (turns). Thumbs Up!!
yeapsy..ensemble will be showcasing many more great pieces in their annual large scale concert, The Next Wave so for those who are really into jazz, ballet, funk stuff, be sure to keep a look out for their concert in September!!
