WHEN: ONE DANCE WEEK 2015

 

“Deformation” explores the issue of identity. Using the language of movement, the performance is an expression of the constant inner dynamics of the disintegration and reconstruction of human identity. “Gentleman” is based on a traditional Korean dance, representative of the male dance called Hanryang-mu. Having been inspired by this traditional Korean dance the show experiments with different breathing techniques in search of new movement aesthetics. Kil Seo-Young graduated in dance and performance from Korea National University of Arts. Currently, he is a PhD student in the doctoral program of Kyonggi University. In 2006, he won the award for outstanding choreographic performance at the Young Choreographers’ Stage competition. Kim JaeSeung graduated from the School of Dance at Korea National University in Seoul. Later, he got a PhD from Dankook University. A remarkable dancer and choreographer, his dance vocabulary combines traditional, modern and contemporary techniques. He is the executive director of Maholra Company .
