Hwa Wei-An

Wei-An started dancing because he thought it was cool. So, he decided to study dance and enrolled in the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts. After graduating, he went on to dance in Frontier Danceland, and has recently moved on to become an independent artist. During his time as a dancer, he has had the opportunity to work with choreographers like Pichet Klunchun, Wu Chien Wei, Noa Zuk, Ole Khamchanla, Shahar Binyamini, Gabrielle Nankivell and Luke Smiles, and Sita Ostheimer. 

In 2018 Wei-An has compeleted the ELEMENT Residency at Dance Nucleus in Singapore, as well as a residency in Rimbun Dahan in Malaysia, during which the piece “The Art of Falling” was made.  Wei-An was also selected by the M1 Contact Contemporary Dance Festival (Singapore) to collaborate with Kim Ho-yeon and Lim JungHa of the Dab Dance Project in Korea to create “Ignoramus”, which has been performed in both Singapore and Korea. 

Today, Wei-An continues to delve into the worlds of hip-hop dance, b-boying, and tricking; disciplines that feed into his contemporary dance practice. He also organises an annual event called Paradigm Shift, aimed at bringing contemporary dancers together with dancers of other backgrounds and influences.
