My first encounter with Chumvan Sodhachivy, aka Belle, was during the Rubbish Fashion Show at Elsewhere dated back in 2007. At that time she was invited to make a short performance during the show. Yet it was only when I saw her performance at French Cultural Centre in 2009 that I started to fall in love with her creative and unique contemporary dance.
Again last week I was amazed with performances by her and her team, Silver Belle, at Gasolina. Her pliant body, richness of expression and fast-moving actions could easily capture the audient’s hearts.
