Contemporary dance company Raw Moves really seems to like food.

Last August's Optical Appetite was a sensuous smorgasbord of fruits and cake on stage, and half of Friday's R.e.P 2014 double-bill was the dining-inspired Chi Le Ma? (Eat With Us).

R.e.P is Raw Moves' annual platform for established choreographers to showcase their works, and this year's edition, staged at the Goodman Arts Centre Black Box, featured Indonesian practitioner Davit Fitrik and local choreographer Chiew Peishan.

The evening opened with Chiew's Peeling Us, which was inspired by social penetration theory, or the notion that communicating information about oneself is fundamental to any relationship.
