Contact Contemporary Dance Festival gets M1 as title sponsor

Telco M1 has come on board as title sponsor for this year's edition of the Contact Contemporary Dance Festival, presented by T.H.E Dance Company. The M1 Contact Contemporary Dance Festival 2014 will take place from Nov 27 to Dec 13 this year.

The 17-day affair will include seven productions from more than 90 local and international performers, as well as 45 technique workshops.

Highlights of the festival include DiverCity 2014, a collaborative work between four female foreign-born but Singapore-bred dance artists, and the International Artists Showcase, which this year will feature dancers from Israel, Japan, Taiwan and Sweden.

Mr Ivan Lim, director of corporate communications at M1, says: "Contact Dance Festival has established a reputation for collaborative excellence, bringing together leading contemporary dancers from Singapore and the region. It also serves as an important platform to advocate and share contemporary dance with professionals and audiences from all walks of life."
