Dance lovers have a lot to look forward to with two iconic dance groups returning for performances at the Esplanade.

Legendary butoh troupe Sankai Juku is set to perform its ethereal work Kagemi: Beyond The Metaphors Of Mirrors here on April 30 and May 1, and well-known German ballet company the Stuttgart Ballet will stage Onegin on Oct 31 and Nov 1.

The two productions are part of the Esplanade's da:ns series, an ad hoc series of stellar dance productions, separate from the arts centre's da:ns festival which is usually held in October.

Sankai Juku was last here two years ago for the festival, performing another work Tobari - As If In An Inexhaustible Flux, and the Stuttgart Ballet in 2007 with Romeo & Juliet.
