Objectives

· Furthering cancer awareness and increasing support for cancer patients from the community, and to bridge and strengthen ties among cancer patients and family members coping with cancer by providing a platform for them to interact and engage in a common activity;

· Inspiring cancer patients to never lose hope and to bravely pursue their passions and dreams through dance;

· Giving back to society by donating profits to cancer beneficiaries; and

· Exploring the coexistence of dance and cancer, and creating works with unconventional associations thereby encouraging flourishment of arts and culture and generate a greater appreciation for dance.

Synopsis

Using the spread of cancerous cells as a concept, we plan to show how these cells stealthily destroy the lives of cancer patients as well as their family members and friends.


Through dance as a medium, we hope to spread the message of positivity by protraying stories of cancer patients and questioning the following five (5) themes:

· Love – Love conquers everything?

· Family – Nothing breaks a family bond?

· Friends – Understanding friendships?

· Strangers – Beauty of strangers?

· Battle – Conquer or to be conquered?
