Art for art’s sake
Yang Hao (Hong Kong/China).
T.H.E Dance Company premieres a full length work called Mr.Sign by resident choreographer, Kim Jae Duk. With their unique brand of highly kinetic works, T.H.E digs deep into the human experience, highlighting the compelling details of life in our contemporary environment.
In Mr.Sign, six dancers seek release in unexpected ways: conventional language is broken up and spouted in random consonants to produce absurd forms of expression.
Superficial conversation crumbles in the face of seeming gibberish, compelling the audience to listen for nuances 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.
