The Star Online: Outshining the Rest

Gan Chih Pei’s Before 40 was my favourite piece at Jamu 2009. Not because I fit into this age group, but because of Gan’s artistic intelligence in conveying very clearly the difficult task of describing what she feels about turning 40.

If the title and synopsis did not suggest her age, I would have thought that a 20-something in her physical prime was performing on stage. Gan’s technical mastery was head and shoulders above that of most of the other dancers at Jamu 2009.

She walked back and forth across the stage, leaving and re-entering, each time coming back on with a bigger bundle of clothes in her arms. The clothes were those she had worn over the years, and ranged from a pink baby tutu to baggy T-shirts from the rebellious teen years.

As we can identify the age of a tree by counting the rings in its trunk, so could we count the years of Gan’s life as she marked every decade by pulling on a top; by the end of the performance, she had on four layers of clothes.

The circular hand and leg movements that dominated her choreography nicely complemented the idea of those tree rings. A musician on stage with her played the di zhi (Chinese flute) underlining the reflective piece with melancholic notes.

Before 40 was a simple, honest and moving piece.
