The third installment of the Southeast Asia Choreographers Network (SEACN) is being held online via Zoom until Dec. 1. 

The Southeast Asia Choreographers Network is a platform for young choreographers in the region following their participation in the North Carolina-based American Dance Festival’s International Choreographers Residency Program. The platform features workshops, discussions, presentations and studio visits to enhance its participants’ artistic visions and practices.

Being held in the digital realm, this year’s platform aims to be a collective support system among choreographers. Aside from expanding networks, it can also be a space for “collectively reconsidering their strengths and vulnerabilities”, as quoted from a press release.

Twelve participants from Cambodia, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam are joining the platform. They are Rady Nget, Yon Davi, Nou Sovitou, Danang Pamungkas, Moh. Hariyanto, Alissa Soelaeman, Kornkarn Rungsawang, Nitipat Ong Pholchai, Pakhamon Much Hemachandra, Ngo Thanh Phuong, Pham Thi Hong Sam and Nguyen Chung.

The participants are learning from three mentors, namely Arco Renz from Belgium, Daniel Kok from Singapore and Helly Minarti from Indonesia.

Initiated in 2017, the Southeast Asia Choreographers Network is a project of non-profit organization Kelola Foundation Indonesia. It is supported by non-profit organization Asian Cultural Council (ACC) in New York. (wir/wng)
