Expression Gallery, Level 4
Free on a first-come-first-served basis. Limited capacity.
Minutes, an autobiographical piece by Yarra Ileto and Zhuo Zihao, seeks to express the poetics of everyday life events through multimedia and movement. The work highlights the seemingly mundane moments, familiar routines and ordinary experiences which are overlooked in the hectic pace of modern life, and considers how the home is lived and experienced by people as a place and an idea.

About Zhuo Zihao
Zhuo Zihao studied contemporary dance at LASALLE College of the Arts in Singapore and the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, both under scholarships. He was a resident artist with Odyssey Dance Theatre from 2000 to 2004, and a founding member of T.H.E Dance Company since 2008. Zihao has performed and toured intensively with T.H.E in the company’s repertoires since establishment, working with many renowned artists over the years. In 2012, he was conferred the Young Artist Award by National Arts Council. With his unique animalistic movement vocabularies, Zihao aims to discover and develop the clarity within one’s self. He tries to integrate technology into his works to create immersive experiences for the audience, and this is best exemplified by his work, Felt Sense, which blended 3D projections with live performance. In 2015, Zihao co-produced Dance in Situ, a site-specific performance platform designed to bring professional creations into the heartlands, catering towards non-dance goers. Zihao stepped down as a company dancer in 2016, and is currently an independent artist and Associate Artist with T.H.E. In mid-2017, he began to broaden the spectrum of his craft by working alongside the local community, collaborating with children and people with disabilities.
