“You never know what someone is thinking unless they tell you...”
What goes on inside the mind?
Performed by a cast of individual and expressive male dancers from different walks of life, this hip hop / contemporary / experimental piece will explore how contained thoughts affect our actions, towards others and situations.
Being a young male in this generation, we all struggle with our appearance, pride, vulnerability, fear, character and status. Step into the minds of this dynamic ensemble and see what goes on beneath the surface and how faith, hope and love can change the outcome.
Choreographer: Nathan Neo Gordon

We are often sold single story narratives about marginalised groups of people. This piece aims to shift the narrative and provide alternative stories to broaden our perceptions. It is about providing platforms for our silenced voices to be heard. It’s about giving space to the complexities of our beautiful nature; to shift the narrative from negative to positive. Toh-Kuhn is anecdotal and honest; it brings light to the voices of the deliberately silenced. A muscular interpretation of what it means to be seen and not heard. A gentle reminder to find more than just a whisper amongst the crowds.

An epilogue holds within it the final, concluding act or event, the ending of the story, the closure and resolution. Epilogue, by Lewis Major, is that and something more: at once a deconstruction of and a meditation on, classicism and the role that beauty has played in the shaping of the Western canon. A crystallised dance work that explores different processes and aesthetics to create a new language for acclaimed French soloist, Pascal Marty. At the intersection of this collaboration is a hypnotic work where modernity and tradition interact in perfect harmony.
“The concept is simple, but the realisation is multi-layered: each element carefully considered and staged with theatrical verve to make a solo worthy of a post-modern Bellini.” – Maggie Foyer, Seeing Dance, Sweden
“Major’s choreography zapped us through time with classical piano variations by Debussy, contrasted by remixed music sounds and contemporary dance movements. Epilogue was utterly classic and ethereal.” – Hong Kong Dance Moms, Hong Kong
“Lewis Major’s work, Epilogue, is a mesmerizing and sinuous exploration, again pushing physical boundaries with Marty’s unique body language at the fore.” – Lisa Lanzi, TheatreTravels.org
