ABOUT ROLYPOLY DANCE
ROLYPOLY FAMILY Dance is based on Faye’s dance explorations with her 2 year-old son and is inspired by intuitive dancer-parent-teachers out there, including Itay Yatuv/Contakids (Israel) and Heike Kuhlmann (Berlin). Each session is also influenced by the kids and adults in the room, who come in with their own creativity and movement styles.
Resident Dance Artists: Faye Lim & Felicia Lim
Faye Lim founded Rolypoly Family to share a space where dance and community can be enjoyed by dancers and families with young children. Her practice in movement and contact improvisation, experience teaching dance to young children, and never-ending play with her 2 year-old son form the base for her work in Rolypoly Family.
She continues to collaborate with other artists on performance-making, directs the Strangeweather Movement Group and facilitates jams and workshops in Singapore and dance festivals in KL. She holds an MFA in Dance from the NYU Tisch School, where she received the Graduate Award for Artistic Initiative.
Felicia Lim is a dance practitioner based in Singapore. She studied dance in Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts and continued on to her final year in SUNY Purchase College, graduating with a BFA in dance. While in school and through various workshops and intensives focusing in somatic practices and contact improvisation, she experienced diverse ways of approaching dance and is interested in discovering more about the relationship of the body and movement.
