HEY MAN! (2012)

Choreography: Kim Jae Duk (Korea)

Resident choreographer Kim Jae Duk returns for the third time to create another scintillating work for the company, a 30 minute-long creation titled Hey Man!. Once again, Kim takes a dig at the silliness of modern man’s behaviour, this time questioning the need for excessive rules and structures in society. Modern society introduces structures in the hopes of trying to make things easier to understand. Yet even as we communicate, things seem to get lost in meaning. We cannot learn or even start to understand everything just by obeying these structures. In the end what matters most is that we feel a sincerity of expression when communicating with one another.

Praise for Hey Man!:
“… the company has really synergised with palpable energy and confidence after years of dedication, experimentation and working together.” – Stephanie Burridge , The Flying Inkpot.

Premiere: CONTACT Contemporary Dance Festival 2012, 7 – 9 December 2012, Esplanade Theatre Studio.
Tours: May 2014, Busan International Dance Festival 2014 in Busan, Korea.
June 2014, International Dance Festival Cultural Ecotopias in Katowice, Poland.
