Suffused with dark humour and inventiveness, Mr. Sign is an excavation into the workings of a hierarchal society—a furious search to locate one’s place within it and the meaning of human communication, explored through the lens of contemporary dance.

For its 10th edition, the Festival revives this acclaimed 2013 commission by award-winning choreographer Kim Jae Duk. The bold musical score arranged by Kim features an idiosyncratic mix of influences, from Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake and Indonesian gamelan to traditional Korean trot music. Known for his high-octane performances, Kim translates the playfulness and metaphorical wit of his stylistic movements with an all-new six-member cast from T.H.E Dance Company.

Mr. Sign is also a featured programme as part of Esplanade's Feed Your Imagination (F.Y.I) 2019, a dedicated series for schools.
