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.
