edgy, current and
fiercely independent


Described as a dance company ‘at the top of its game’, The Human Expression (T.H.E) Dance Company, along with our semi-professional training arm, T.H.E Second Company, are names synonymous with ground breaking contemporary dance of the highest quality and artistry. Founded in 2008 by Artistic Director Kuik Swee Boon with six members, T.H.E has become a household name in Singapore and the region, having been commissioned by most major local arts festivals.

The Company has also performed in prestigious international festivals such as Les Hivernales Festival, Oriente Occidente Festival, Inteatro Festival, Cross Festival, and Fabbrica Europa, SIDance Festival and Seoul Performing Arts Festival, Beijing and Guangdong Dance Festival, Yokohama Dance Collection at TPAM and Niigata International Dance Festival, Auckland Arts Festival (new creation commission) 2016, amongst others.

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).
