Lee Choy Wan

Lee Choy Wan trained in contemporary dance with Kwang Tung Dance Company and is currently one of its main members. She has been actively involved in performances locally and internationally including in Germany, China and Singapore. Her work Met.a.mor.pho.sis was invited to Contact – A Week of Dance in Singapore in 2011. In 2014, she was selected to participate in the American Dance Festival (ADF) International Master Class in Henan, China, where she presented a self-choreographed solo piece, The Next Door. Her new choreography, The Corner, which was presented in the 9th Kua Bu, The Unicorn's Travelogue, at the Damansara Performing Arts Centre (DPAC) in 2014, was also invited to the Shantanand Festival of Arts 2014 in Kuala Lumpur. Choy Wan has always been interested in investigating and developing the different ways of inhabiting the body. This curiosity has led her into studying, practicing and performing contact improvisation since 2013, and in that year, she participated in Asia Pacific Impro! at DPAC.
