Diplomacy in a Dangerous World

Mon, 5 Nov 2018 @ 7:00 pm


Escalating border tensions, recklessly blunt words, steady military build-ups, and incessant trafficking of women and children. Are we living in a ticking time bomb in this increasingly fragmented world? Do politicians and economists always know best? What are the other roles that we can play in grappling with an impending global destruction? A group of dancers give us an alternative in the way they know best – by fostering connections with the world through dance.

Singapore film premiere of Moving Stories followed by a panel discussion.
Runtime: 1 h 24 mins
