Dua Space Dance Theatre was established by Anthony Meh and Aman Yap in 1998. Since then, the company has created various productions, such as ‘TWO’, ‘Scream-A Response to Munch’, ‘The Legend of Hou Yi and Chang Er’, ‘Anak Malaysia’, ‘Black & White@VARIATION’, ‘DEN’, ‘Ancient Inscriptions’, ‘The Tree’, ‘MW-Men and Women Seeking for Love’, ‘The Lotus Sutra’ and many more, ranging from ethnic dance to contemporary dance forms. Dua Space currently focuses on sharing dance with local communities and building a dance network with its base area in Puchong, resonating with the name of ‘Dua Space’ which carries the meaning of sharing and interaction.
The company had performed in China, Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Pakistan, Indonesia, London, Philippines, India, Spain, and South American countries including Peru, Chile, Argentina and Paraguay.
Dua Space Dance Theatre is currently focusing on building our 5 core directions:
【Sowing The Seeds of Art】 Besides creating theatre performance, Dua Space brings dance performances into communities where dance and performing arts are less accessible through 【Dua Space Dance Mapping】 Project (Batu Arang, Simpang Renggam, Ipoh, Jenjarom) and performing at unconventional venues.
【Hand in Hand】We partner with Taiwan Polio Care Association, Dual Blessing Berhad (Disabled Independent Development Association), Persatuan Kebajikan Berkat Berganda (Shuang Fu) Johor Bahru and Persatuan OKU Kuching (House of Joy) to stage-manage and perform during their fundraising and social events, and teach dance and perform with disabled and wheelchair dancers.
【Sharing Dance】 Creating more possible channels for the public to access dance besides performance. Our latest initiative 【Dua Space Community Arts Studio】 converts our studio in Puchong into a community space where art and dance lovers can enjoy workshops, talks, seminars exhibitions, and even studio performances; 【Puchong Dance Network】 hopes to connect artists and dance practitioners from the community to join forces and promote the dance and art awareness in Puchong community.
【Dance@ONLINE】 Presenting our works online through screening on digital platforms, including our Online Theatre and YouTube Channel, breaking the geographical boundaries for our performance to be more accessible online.
【Dua Space Art & Craft】 Our new division that runs under the dance company, in the vision of developing a self-sustainable art-entrepreneurship model for the dance company by merchandizing art and craft products that would elevate the aesthetic and wellbeing of the public.
