Review: Complexnya

Complexities of Spaces and Bodies

June 4, 2019

"Complexnya compels the audience to view Hong Lim Complex anew."

“Secrets and wisdom in a hidden hub. High rise flats surrounded by business-centric modernity. Immediately, I sense the past. And I wish to resist time.” 

Chan Sze-Wei

Review:  NGOPI

"Ngopi" by P7:1SMA: Stop and Smell the Coffee

April 3, 2018

"Norhaizad Adam’s second full length work with his company P7:1SMA (say “prisma”) is set in another world. The audience steps through the door of the Drama Centre Black Box into an arena of wooden crates and sacking, the whiff of wood and coffee beans in the warm light of a late afternoon."

Review:  Belon

Old meets new in dance performance, Belon

March 27, 2016

"During the post-show dialogue of P7:1SMA's (pronounced as Prisma) performance, Belon, its young artistic director Norhaizad Adam, or Haizad as he is better known, was shy when answering difficult questions about the problematic discourse on the dichotomy between the traditional and contemporary."

Review: Complexnya

Complexnya, a movement love letter to Singapore

June 4, 2019

"Complexnya feels like Norhaizad Adam’s poetic movement love letter to Singapore. Dance in Situ transforms the way we see the city; audiences can no longer view Hong Lim Complex the same way they had before attending the performance walk."

Review: District 18 

"District 18" by P7:1SMA

March 17, 2019

"It’s noon and oppressively hot and my shadow’s hiding beneath me from the sun. I’m making my way to the Tampines Round Market & Food Centre (“pasar bulat”), which is just a fifteen-minute busride from my home, but I feel like a complete tourist in this food centre despite the fact that it’s in the district just next door to mine."

Review:  Belon

"Belon" - P7:1SMA

November 5, 2018

"In the silent Stamford Arts Centre Black Box, a performer inhales and exhales into a black balloon as it grows stretched and taut and shiny. I’m inhaling and exhaling too, waiting for the distended skin of the balloon to rupture, for that tipping point between the joys..."

"Using the labyrinthine world of Hong Lim Complex to tease out issues of conflict and change."

Review: NGOPI

NGOPI finishes with a bittersweet taste

April 10, 2018

"Choreographer, Norhaizad Adam negotiates coffee culture; the tasty, the ugly and the horrendous take over of corporations on the reach and delicious coffee bean. The atmosphere in the Theatre is revealing, and we feel exposed as we walk into what looks like the grinding basement of a coffee shop."

Chan Sze-Wei, Chloe Chotrani, Soultari Amin Farid

Podcast 37: "Joget" "Intersections: Traditionally Speaking"

Review:  Belon

March 30, 2016

"This past weekend, P7:1SMA – a new contemporary dance company focusing on Asian contemporary dance and rooted in the Malay dance form – had their debut production Belon, a contemplative piece that was more mentally challenging than I had expected it to be."


 P7:1SMA is supported by the National Arts Council under the Seed Grant Scheme for the period from 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2020
