We attended the showcase performance put together by The Arts Fission Company recently. Choreograph & Directed by Aaron Khek, we were treated to a series of surprises gracefully performed by Scarlet Yu.

Scheduled over 3 nights at The Arts Fission Company’s studio at Cairnhill Road, the company opens the dance to a full house every night. It was almost overcrowding on the opening night!

Scarlet was on her top form and remained consistent throughout the series, showcasing her various moves and glides sending the audience to places where only the mind can imagine.

We would like to exaggerate more on Scarlet’s impressive performance, but not this time. You can always Google for her; she is already famous when we came to know her. Instead, allow us to take you on a pictorial journey with us to relive and “feel” the energy from the performance.

We rated this dance showcase 4 Stars out of 5!


Let’s go!

On a side note: 

With an informal setting and casual ambience, there are bound to be “Concert-Idiots”. People who left their mobile phones on ringing mode or simple refuse to switch off beeping devices.

For this performance, we found a female – “photographer wannabe” who is seated among the audience and was shutter-happy. She shot at 3 seconds interval even at the most quietest part of the performance where silence is required from the audience to fully re-create the ambience and mood of the scene. We later found out she was a close friend of the performer and we left the performance disgusted by such rude & barbaric behavior – selfishly displayed by this individual, which indirectly affected our overall experience.

All it takes is just one idiot like this person to spoil the audience’s experience with her off beat shutter speed at the wrong moment snapping away.

Such people obviously do not understand Camera Ethics of Concerts (CEC) and definitely do not respect performing arts. She is not even fit to be holding a camera at a concert/ performance to start with.

Worse, this is total disrespect to the performer(s).

Lastly, I believed no one ever taught her how to communicate with a journalist. We can lift or kill with our words.   
(Can you believe this? She is an Editor too, of some magazine. Go on, Laugh.)
