Resident choreographer Kim Jae Duk opens CONTACT 2013 with Mr. Sign, his first full-length creation for T.H.E Dance Company. Domesticated and muzzled by social convention, six dancers seek release in unexpected ways: conventional language is broken up and spouted in random consonants to produce absurd forms of expression. Superficial conversation crumbles in the face of seeming gibberish, compelling us to listen for nuance and unspoken meaning. Accompanied by a tenor singing original compositions by choreographer Kim and stirring music from Tchaikovsky, Mr. Sign promises to be a visual and aural treat for the senses!

There will be a post-show dialogue after the Fri 29 Nov 8pm performance.

AFX - Asian Festivals Exchange

New to the festival fold is the AFX - Asian Festivals Exchange, which sees CONTACT partnering artists from the Yokohama and Seoul Dance Collections in a series of residencies with T.H.E Second Company and Malaysia's Damansara Performing Arts Centre (DPAC) Dance Company. Transcending language barriers, they conceive fresh new works that embody the unique colours and customs of their respective dance cultures.

Yokohama Dance Collection’s Yuriko Suzuki embarks on an intensive three-week collaboration in Singapore with pioneer member of T.H.E Second Company, Liz Fong. Award-winning Korean choreographer Choi Myung Hyun gets inspired by a rich exchange of ideas and styles with former Cloud Gate dancer and DPAC Dance Company’s Artistic Director Wong Jyh Shyong.

There will be a post-show dialogue after the Wed 4 Dec performance.
