About "Start or Stop?":

Be inspired by different experiences and the passion that drives people forward. “Start Or Stop?” hopes to explore the innate motivations and forces that drive people’s lives. Could it be their beliefs that make them brave enough to walk alone? Could it be their faith that assures them that the skies will be clear again? Could it be their immense passion that grab and tug their heartstrings through the days and nights? Or could it be their bewildered burst of energy that provides the impetus to overcome the terrains of life? One day, the sky will tell you that all is fine.
Immerse in a brand-new experience with “Start or Stop?”, a new original full-length choreography by Artistic Director Dr Danny Tan and performed by Odyssey Dance Theatre. This is the third and final part of the trilogy, following “Rain or Shine?” and “Lost or Found?” that premiered in November 2018 and March 2019 respectively.
Join us at the ODT Gala Performance and enjoy a night of unique and poignant programme to celebrate and support ODT Ltd’s long-term artistic pursuits, audience development, and building more capacities to support the social and education sectors!
