Mavin Khoo is an international dance artist who is renowned as a Bharata Natyam solo artist as well as a dancer, rehearsal director and coach of contemporary dance and as a teacher of Classical Ballet for professional classical and contemporary companies. .
I am so proud to say that he was one of my teachers who taught me Cunningham. A teacher with so much knowledge and experience and also a true artist who gives his all to the art form. I feel truely blessed and lucky to have had him as my teacher and more recently the opportunity to work with him professionally. .
Mavin says, ‘My life has always been destined to serve the Dance. As a child it’s the first memory I have, that I wanted to dance every day of my life. I have been blessed to have taught, guided and nurtured by some of the greatest artists of the world. This is something that I have started to understand more and more as I have matured; that therefore, my life in Dance is no longer one expression of my love for it but rather, my responsibility to all the voices that echo within me as a construction of these great artists.
Today I am a mature artist, who at the age of 42 is still in a state of curiosity and marvel at the wonder of Dance and the lineage that I come from. But, I often talk to young dancers of the importance of perseverance and patience. That it is important to keep going even when it seems that there is no point....because having a relationship with Dance has to be real, like any other relationship...You have to experience love, desire, irritation even hate for IT, for IT to be real... The Man to Monk Project is essentially framed by this...that in order to reach that transcendental space, one first has to acknowledge, embrace, even perhaps, accept the Man within that is underpinned by what we perceive to be flaws...that love brings with it lust, desire, anger, hate...
