One of the more notable faces in the Singapore dance scene, Independent dance artist Lee Mun Wai continues to broaden his approaches to dance and choreography. Projects such as a recently concluded residency at Centre 42 in February 2017, in which he responded to the banned plays of Singaporean playwright Elangovan, and his collaboration in the performance I AM LGB for the Singapore International Festival of Arts 2016, reflect his ongoing efforts to challenge the way dance and choreography are seen, experienced and thought about.

He was one of the founding members of T.H.E Dance Company (2008 – 2015). He performed in most of T.H.E’s repertoire and in seminal festivals such as Les Hivernales in Avignon, France, as well as the Oriente Occidente festival in Rovereto, Italy. He has also performed in China, South Korea, Poland, India, Indonesia and Malaysia, and worked with some of Asia’s most sought after choregraphers including Xing Liang, Kim Jae Duk and Boi Sakti. In 2014, he received the Young Artist Award from the National Arts Council.
