Programme C - T.H.E Dance Company Premiere

 Programme C - T.H.E Dance Company Premiere , Mr. Sign 

Featuring “Mr. Sign”, choreographed by T.H.E’s resident choreographer, Kim Jae Duk (Korea) and performed by T.H.E Dance Company, Singapore. 

Mr. Signtrailer

Mr. Sign

Domesticated and muzzled by societal convention, six dancers seek release in unexpected ways: conventional language is broken up to produce absurd forms of expression. Superficial conversation crumbles in the face of gibberish, compelling us to listen for nuance and unspoken meaning. Accompanied by reworked music from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, Mr. Sign promises to be a visual and aural treat for the senses!

The Straits Times

A choice quote from ST reviewer Germaine Cheng:

 "T.H.E Dance Company has struck gold with South Korean choreographer Kim Jae Duk, and they know it... (The dancers) rise to the occasion as confident performers, impressing beyond their usually faultless dancing. Mr. Sign sees them taking on more complex stage personas, uttering gibberish, and jumping on tables."Featuring “Mr. Sign”, choreographed by T.H.E’s resident choreographer, Kim Jae Duk (Korea) and performed by T.H.E Dance Company, Singapore." 

Arts Republic

A quote from Ah Fen:

"This time, Kim showed off his skill at weaving music, beats and speeches seamlessly together into his work. His dark humour was once again present although he claimed in an earlier interview* that he had not purposely added any. Mr. Sign aims to show how important communication is in any society, and it was effectively done." >Full Review

 Kim Jae Duk 

As T.H.E Dance Company’s very first resident choreographer, Kim’s works have been described by critics as among some of the most attention grabbing, refreshing and innovative. His pulsating works straddle both the pop and artistic realms and place great emphasis on highlighting complications that arise from an individual’s relationship with larger societal structures. His signature style – dark humour, fast-paced choreography and stylishly self-composed, beat-driven music situate themselves perfectly in today’s contemporary environment.
