Three Kin by T.H.E Dance Company
Synopsis

Three Kin is leading contemporary dance group T.H.E Dance Company’s closing production for the 2017 season and part of the company’s annual headlining showcase of creations by acclaimed Singaporean and international guest choreographers.

Performed by T.H.E’s full-time principal dancers, the triple bill features Kuik Swee Boon’s fresh new interpretation of Water Bloom (a NUS Arts Festival 2009 commission) and two new creations by resident South Korean choreographer Kim Jae Duk, and Spanish choreographer Dimo Kirilov Milev respectively.

About the works and choreographers

Water Bloom, by Kuik Swee Boon – In 2009, Water Bloom explored the fragile relationship between Man and nature using a striking visual: the suffocating promulgation of red sea reefs arising from man-made water pollution, disrupting the ocean’s food chain, and therefore Man’s food sources. Today, environmental awareness and activism, are hot-button topics, with consumer habits tied to an awareness of numerous factors: sustainability, eco-friendly practices, ethical labour conditions, and most significantly; a pro-conservation conscience that is living amidst the consequences of the Industrial Revolution and climate change. In the 2017 iteration, Water Bloom thematic message is more urgent than over. The dancers embody the urgency of these issues whilst conveying that there is no simple solution: change must happen: beginning from an individual consciousness, that ignites larger, joint and sustained efforts.

Kim Jae Duk – Kim has choreographed a new work for T.H.E every year since 2011 (collaborative work RE:OK…BUT!; Hey Man; Present; collaborative work Organised Chaos; Mr. Sign; Equilibrium), promises a kinetic new piece that delivers the best of both worlds in music (original composition by Kim) and dance movement filled with power, wit and humour.

Dimo Kirilov Milev – Former Spanish Compania Nacional de Danza principal dancer Dimo Kirilov first worked with T.H.E’s principal company in 2013, creating the well-received Collisions for the DiverCity – a work described by The Straits Times as “explor(ing) the complexity of modern human relationships… each duet possess(ing) its own distinct flavour coupled with brilliant execution”; and by the Flying Inkpot, “the dynamism, athleticism and aesthetics… were breathtaking. All the dancers played their roles with individuality, finesse and strong technique.” Kirilov had recently performed at the M1 CONTACT Festival in end June 2017, and continued in residency with T.H.E Dance Company until August – this first part of the new creation. He returns in November – December to continue working and for the premiere of the creation.

RECOMMENDATIONS
liTHE 2017 by T.H.E Second Company
The sixth iteration of T.H.E Second Company’s annual liTHE production spotlights the choreographic talents of Second Company’s alumnus, Anthea Seah, Goh Shou Yi, and Marcus Foo, three Singaporean artists whom have carved striking paths in our local contemporary dance scene and abroad.They create three brand new works for 21 dancers from T.H.E Second Company – our semi-professional youth wing that nurtures talented young dancers through performances, collaborations, residencies and professional-level training, whilst they juggle school and work life. It is our concerted effort to cultivate and programme homegrown talent on a larger scale, recognising that liTHE and T.H.E Second Company has a strong aspirational appeal to large student groups who dance for the CCA, clubs, or at commerical studios.About the ChoreographersAnthea Seah – A core dancer of T.H.E’s principal company since 2014, Seah danced with the Second Company whilst pursuing her engineering studies at Nanyang Technology University. Having switched midway to a dance degree at LASALLE and a full-time career with T.H.E, her versatility as an intelligent mover and choreographer has been showcased in T.H.E’s New Vision platform in 2016, and for productions by NTU’s Contempminated dance group.Goh Shou Yi – Having trained at Purchase College – SUNY and currently based in Singapore, Goh’s latest collaborative work with Japanese artist Kubota Mai premiered at the Esplanade under the M1 CONTACT 2017 this June. He has also collaborated across disciplines, working with Toy Factory as choreographer for its February 2017 production, PRISM.Marcus Foo – A recent Master’s graduate of the London Contemporary Dance School, Japan-based Foo is closely involved with projects in Singapore including an outdoor site-specific new creation for the Dance In Situ series, held at Bedok in June 2017 and performed by indepdendent members of Singapore’s dance community.Photo Credit: Bernie Ng
