Petra Vossenberg and Joao Espinha are currently residing in Singapore and engaged with the local arts scene.
Besides performing on local performing arts platforms such as Make It Share It (non-curated Open Stage led by Kai Eng) they are sharing their knowledge through workshops in somatic dance and improvisation.
Their intention is to contribute to the development of somatic dance and instant composition in Singapore through engaging with local artists and groups as well as continuing their own exploration and practice. They are currently associate members of Dance Nucleus, a platform funded by Singapore’s National Arts Council to support the dance artistic development within the country.
