Faye Lim

Faye JC Pic

Faye Lim is based in Singapore where she continues her movement practice in improvisation and aikido. Her body is drawn to cyclical patterns and rhythms, from which her movement and art-making extend.

She directs the Strangeweather Movement Group, a collective that creates and performs improvisational and cross-disciplinary dance works at off-stage venues around Singapore. Spooky Action (at a Distance) (2013), created in collaboration with quantum physicists at NUS Centre for Quantum Technologies, was featured in filmmaker Karol Jalochowski’s documentary Reality Lost and was performed at the ArtScience Museum in November 2015. Other commissions and invitations include Say That Again (2012) and Port of Call (2013) for curator Tang Ling-Nah’s exhibitions at FOST Gallery and SMU Arts Festival respectively, and Hot Spotch! (2012) for Ground-Up Initiative’s Heritage Kampung Festival.

As part of the Contact Improvisation (CI) community in Singapore, Faye has facilitated jams and workshops in Singapore and dance festivals in KL. She has also taught very young dancers and mentored youth dancers at the Little Arts Academy.
