Simone Forti’s radical Dance Constructions redefined the relationship between bodies and objects when first presented in New York in 1961. See three of these historic works performed in Singapore for the first time—Platforms (1960); Slant Board (1960); and a new version of See Saw (1961) interpreted by Rizman Putra.
