Impulse – a backstage site-specific work
In this original site-specific creation by T.H.E Dance Company’s resident choreographer from Korea, Kim Jae Duk, unexpected spaces in the Esplanade backstage become the playground for the dancers of T.H.E to think outside the (theatre) box.
Working with the natural condition of each space, Kim’s choreography creates a seamless impression of organically occurring movement. The dancers engage and react to the surrounding elements, creating an experience that is unique to every performance.
Kim’s works possess a signature style that is darkly humorous, stylishly self-composed, and features fast-paced choreography set to beat-driven music. Described by critics as the brainchild behind some of the most attention-grabbing, refreshing and innovative works today, Kim’s pulsating and energetic work will create a dynamic relationship with Esplanade’s physical spaces.
Impulse is commissioned and presented by Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, Singapore as part of da:ns Festival 2015.
