Synopsis

Two people locked in a physical dialogue that discusses existence and being. One looks for reasons, the other seeks value. How far will this discussion take them and what is their relationship? T.H.E resident choreographer Kim Jae Duk’s fourth creation for the Company continues in the vein of his highly physical, music‐driven signature. Conceived with the original cast Zhuo Zihao and Wu Mi over 14 intensive days of creation in Seoul, South Korea, Jae Duk’s existential exploration is nuanced with undertones of dark humour that heighten the urgency of his artistic investigation.
