Tying together electronic media, sculpture and dance, LASALLE College of the Arts presents Shifting Interactions, a performance installation.

About Media Lab

The Media Lab at LASALLE College of the Arts operates as a research and practice-oriented environment. It is focused on creating artefacts and prototypes with the use of technology. Whilst the results that emerge from this lab can be experimental and playful, they can also be applied to real world scenarios. With a strong interdisciplinary approach and collaborations with other disciplines the lab aims to expand the use of technology into myriad forms of artistic expressions.

About School of Dance and Theatre

The creative culture at LASALLE College of the Arts is readily apparent in both the cosmopolitan and cutting-edge approach of the BA(Hons) Dance degree and the Diploma in Dance.  The BA(Hons) Dance is an elite programme, which provides dance training with a contemporary, creative and collaborative focus.  Mentoring of inter-disciplinary projects creates a stimulating and encouraging environment for exploration and experimentation, with students engaging in performance as dancers and as choreographers.  Taking our cue from Singapore’s ethnic mix, the programme embraces a range of cultural perspectives in its content, approach and philosophy.  International visiting artists, contribute to the programme by sharing their work and creative processes with students.  Students emerge as internationally competitive dance artists willing to test and expand the definitions of dance.  

The Diploma in Dance develops dance technique and expression in a wide range of styles such as ballet, Urban Dance, Jazz and Asian Movement Practices with a focus on Contemporary dance. It aims to develop students into confident performers and creative collaborators.  Graduates from this programme will be expressive and imaginative dancers who meet the artistic and commercial demands of the performing arts industry in Singapore and the region.
