Commissioned choreographer 23/24: Faye Tan
16th January 2024
It is with great excitement that we announce our next commissioned choreographer for 23/24, Rambert School alumna, Faye Tan.
Faye is a dancer and choreographer from Singapore and is currently a full-time dancer with National Dance Company Wales. Prior to joining NDCWales, Faye was a dance artist with Frontier Danceland. She has also collaborated with Richard Chappell Dance as a dancer and choreographer, and has created works for NDCWales, VERVE, Frontier Danceland and School of The Arts Singapore. Her choreographic practice is influenced by her extensive experiences of working with choreographers from all over the world and her explorations of different dance styles and techniques. Faye is an alumna of Rambert School and VERVE.
A few words from Faye, “The movement language that I work with will challenge the dancers physically and cognitively during the creation process, yet the goal for me is always to create a great, cathartic feeling for the dancers to experience when performing. I also work collaboratively with dancers to incorporate their personal artistry into the piece, which is an integral part of most contemporary dance creation processes. I am very excited to meet the energy of the students at Rambert School with my curiosities as a choreographer. As an alumna of Rambert School, I look back fondly on my personal and artistic growth since graduation, and I’m looking forward to sharing that accumulated experience with the dancers at Rambert School by creating a new piece together.”.
