Tune into Broken Turns, an online performance that follows a Spanish dancer’s journey in Singapore

Combining the artistry of dance with the nature of theatrical performances is no easy feat, but an intrepid team of creatives are embracing such a challenge in a brand new play.

Named Broken Turns, the production will be broadcasted live via Zoom at 8pm SGT from Mar 26-28. Showcasing the traditions of Spanish dance in the format of a contemporary monodrama, the autobiographical, confessional play will turn the spotlight on Spanish dancer and theatre performer Qotn Van Su Yun.

Delving deep into the personal story of the accomplished Spanish dancer based in Singapore, Broken Turns seeks to “de-exoticise” the celebrated art form. At the same time, Van offers the truth about her struggles with her own self-portrayal, how she manages expectations of herself as a performer, and aims to correct misconceptions about dance and her life as a dancer. 

Broken Turns is also an opportunity for Van to perform on her own terms.

Co-written by Nah Dominic and directed by Adeeb Fazah, the digital premiere is expected to utilise Zoom to engage audiences. By taking audience polls and offering online interactions, each performance becomes a unique experience which can be enjoyed from the comforts of home.
