Dynamic duo, Ah Hock and Peng Yu (AHPY) presents MONGCHACHA, a performance that will challenge your perceptions of dance. At the intersection of dance and theatre, it investigates our various stages of coming into existence (awakening) through the study of imprints right in the middle of Town Plaza.

About the artist
AHPY is a Singapore based contemporary dance independent artist duo founded by Khek Ah Hock Aaron, Hong Kong trained dancer/choreographer and Wong Thien Pau Ix, former dancer with the City Contemporary Dance Company (HK), both formally from the Arts Fission Company as choreographers, rehearsal director and dancers. Khek choreography [Bowl of Containment] is one of the finalists of the Young Choreographers’ Platform in 2002 choreographing on the Singapore Dance Theatre. The National Arts Council (Singapore) awarded the Young Artist Award (2005) to Khek for his outstanding contribution and development as an artist/choreographer for the country.

Hock and Ix likes to work with different artists and have since professionally created work for Singapore Dance Theatre, W!LDRICE, Action Theatre (Singapore), Young Peoples’ Performing Arts Ensemble, Singapore Repertory Theatre, The Necessary Stage and the Urban Folk Dance group of Breast Cancer Foundation.

AHPY enjoys crossing boundaries between dance, performance art and visual arts. We strive to rekindle; explore; address social conditions via artistic expressions, multi-disciplinary arts/dance collaboration for SE Asia and the international platforms.

Marking the beginning of a new era of contemporary movement in both art and dance making, Ah Hock & Peng Yu aim to connect people with dance. Moving now.
