Switchblade Operation: The Longing

Switchblade Operation: The Longing is described as a unique visual and dance performance that reimagines two groundbreaking choreographies from '94 and ‘95, by acclaimed contemporary dance choreographer, Loke Soh Kim. The two dance performances, “Gui Qu Lai Xi” and “A World in the City” will be revived in KongsiKL with a whole new team of diverse dancers, and creative team. Presented by Kongsi Petak, we speak to Soh Kim and also the show's producer Low Pey Sien, about how they are restaging these two noted performances almost 30 years since they were first performed.
