This year, the International Dance Festival programme features, for the first time in 12 years, nothing but young and promising contemporary companies from Thailand, Singapore, South Korea, India, and the UK. And the quality of the performances they've brought shows a marked improvement from previous years. This past weekend alone, there were at least two productions worth exploring.
