Local dance group Ecnad to close next year after 17 years

Published on Dec 17, 2012 3:16 PM

Contemporary dance group Ecnad, one of the oldest here, will be winding up next year, after 17 years.

Its co-founder and artistic director Lim Chin Huat, 43, has been scaling back operations for the past few years to prepare for the transition.

He tells Life!: "Initially, it was a painful decision. It's kind of like my baby. So now, it's like I have to kill this baby. But I think if I don't let go, things might not move on.

"I have to move with the times. In the past three years, it's been difficult because I do feel that I've been doing the same old thing, even if it's different projects and trying out different collaborations. Somehow I feel that it's not possible to transform Ecnad again."
