Ghost Call - A Short Film


A call with no one on the other line.
An accidental call you didn’t mean to make.

Wrongly addressed letters.

Ghost Call explores the idea behind one-sided communication and its effects on a person. With technology making it so easy for humans to connect, what does it mean when that connection is broken?

A collaboration between playwright Nabilah Said and RAW Moves Artistic Director Ricky Sim, Ghost Call is an experiment exploring the intersection between movement, text and the raw emotional connection with the audience.

As part of Media Literacy Council’s Better Internet Campaign 2021, Ghost Call is a short film that reflects on online falsehoods.

Dance Composition Whiteboard

Dance Composition - Learn Leadership through Dance!

Dance composition is an excellent arts programme in delivering movement as an educational exposure through creativity and expression, while stimulating students toward a higher holistic outcome, alongside academic learning. Through this unique syllabus of Creative and Movement exploration, students are introduced, informed and involved in the framework of the central organisers in dance; namely – choreography, performance and appreciation.
