edgy, current and
fiercely independent


The Human Expression (T.H.E) Dance Company was founded in 2008 by Artistic Director Kuik Swee Boon. Rooted firmly in Singapore yet universal in its perspective, T.H.E's contemporary dance works reveal the body as a medium for exploring and celebrating the human condition.

Dance artists at T.H.E are immersed in the Company's signature methodology, HollowBody, which guides them to access their deeper instincts and impulses through movement.

The Company's movement vocabulary is distinct in its intensely personal aesthetics, yet thrilling in its diversity. Driven by a sincere desire to uncover the intricate, complex and oft-times overlooked dimensions of human existence, the Company's incisive observations on the human condition and its original creations are an essential mirror to the issues and rhythms of contemporary life.

T.H.E Second Company is the training company set up by T.H.E. Aimed at the semi-professional level, it was established in 2008 and takes in dancers who display a high level of potential in dance. Key to this is a stringent technique training program taught by members of the main company as well as guest teachers that ensures a sound level of physical aptitude needed to tackle the challenges of contemporary dance.

Various members of T.H.E Second Company have received exposure from avenues such as liTHE, an in-house annual showcase, high profile commissions such as the international touring showcase Singapore:Inside Out, for the SG50 celebrations, and the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre’s inaugural Cultural Extravaganza in 2017 directed by Royston Tan, and overseas tours with T.H.E Dance Company. 



Collaboration is an important part of T.H.E Dance Company’s artistic vision. We believe that a successful work does not depend on one person’s effort but the collective energy of a dynamic group of individuals. We have worked with local and foreign artists from diverse artistic disciplines including musicians Bani Haykal, Darren Ng, and Wang Yu Jun (Taiwan) as well as fashion designer Sunny Lim, Brazilian video artist Gabriela Gomes, Finnish lighting designer Anna Rouhu, and international choreographers such as Xing Liang (Hong Kong), Zhang Xiao-Xiong (Taiwan), Wu Yi San (Taiwan), Boi Sakti (Indonesia), Jeffrey Tan (Singapore) and Dimo Kirilov (France/Spain).
