edgy, current and
fiercely independent



Choreography: Kim Jae Duk (Korea), Kuik Swee Boon (Singapore), Mui Cheuk-Yin (Hong Kong)

The second installation of T.H.E Dance Company’s Solo / Duet series continues to showcase the individual artistry of each company dancer through short works in the solo or duet format, Yarra Ileto works with noted Hong Kong choreographer Mui Cheuk-Yin on a solo piece titled Untitled, creating unexpected shapes and narratives with a single roll of silk unfurling around her body.

Meanwhile, dancers Wu Mi and Zhuo Zihao engage in a physical dialogue on existence and being; one representing the pursuit of reason, the other of value, in resident choreographer Kim Jae Duk’s Present.

Finally, Kuik Swee Boon collaborates with dancers Jessica Christina, Lee Mun Wai and Sherry Tay to create Un-form, a rumination on the artist’s role in society and the perpetual questioning of the validity and value of their chosen profession.

Commissioned by the National University of Singapore (NUS) Arts Festival 2013.
