THE MAN IN THE CENTRE (2010)

Choreography: Kuik Swee Boon (Singapore)

Choreographed in 2010, The Man In The Centre signals artistic director Kuik Swee Boon’s artistic shift to focusing on the intrinsic nature of an individual’s existence. Opting for a more organic creative process, he focuses on individuals who look inwards in the attempt to find their centre in modern life; a journey in search of that elusive element that makes us who we are. This work does not begin with any grand concept or theme but instead attempts to flow in a way that feels harmonious; using the simplest and most basic artistic means to find fundamental and revealing answers to a person’s identity.

Commissioned by the National Heritage Board of Singapore.

Praise for The Man In The Centre:
“an…important breakthrough for Kuik and his company” – Tara Tan, The Straits Times

Premiere: 12 – 14 August 2010, National Museum of Singapore’s Gallery Theatre
