After meeting at OzAsia 2017 Dance Lab Ricky and Alison started talking about possible opportunities for presenting work this led to Alison being invited to create and present a new work on RAW Moves dance company in Singapore in 2018.
Choreographer / director: Alison Currie
Dancers: Matthew Goh and Stephanie Rae Yoong
Dramaturg: Neo Kim Seng
Commissioned and Produced by: RAW Moves
RAW Moves Artistic Director: Ricky Sim
‘Close Company' will be an intimate performance experience created for RAW Moves signature shipping container performance space. The choreographic impetus for this work is physical; how two bodies can support each other equally both leaning into and away from one another, this quickly transfers meaning to an emotional closeness, support and intimacy. Co-dependency, imbalance, battle and competition are also present in this shared experience of resistance.
Presented in Singapore: Bookings and Information

“Close Company then pushes, pulls and challenges its dancers physically, mentally and emotionally, asking them to present through their bodies what intimacy and co-dependency means to them. As contact work comes together with text and movement, Close Company promises an introspective, unique look back on our own interpersonal relationships, and the varied connections we’ve forged over our lives.” - Bakchormeeboy , 2018
