Mr Sign (T.H.E Studio Showing)


Project "Next Stage" - Support T.H.E's Europe Tour in 2019!

2019 is a crucial year for the international development of T.H.E Dance Company. We can now announce that Invisibles Habitudes has been invited to 5 European Festivals, with two more venues pending confirmation (full details may be found at the end of this EDM). The tour line-up for Mr. Sign will be announced later this year.

It is our pleasure and privilege to showcase the charm of local art on larger, international stages. At the same time, it represents a financial challenge that will require us to gather an extraordinary amount of support.

We need your generous donation and all forms of aid to enable our dancers, designers and production team to complete these tours at the highest levels of professionalism and artistic quality. Your help will go towards covering the costs of our living expenses, regional transport, and the logistic requirements of mounting this work.

To complement this fundraising note, Project “Next Stage” will comprise of a series of studio showings and other surprise events that are carefully curated to ensure that you will encounter different, delightful facets of T.H.E Dance Company.

Join us in breaking new grounds!

Mr. Sign
Choreography: Kim Jae Duk (Korea)

Resident choreographer Kim Jae Duk’s first full-length creation for T.H.E Dance Company, Mr. Sign centres on the subject of thoughts and ideas. Framed by a larger inquiry on existence and rationality, Mr. Sign examines the individual’s place in a hierarchical society, where relationships may not necessarily provide emotional satisfaction and peace of mind is only achieved through the realisation of self. Ultimately, it questions if communication is indeed important to humans.

Displaying his keen musicality, Kim reworks traditional Korean ‘trot music’, Indonesian gamelan, and parts of Tchaikovsky’s classic piece Swan Lake to create an edgy, heart-pounding music score.
