INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATION PLATFORM 2
In Partnership with Korea Dance Association
In Association with Seoul International Dance Festival and Gwangju Donggu Road Art Festival
4 & 5 June 2014, 8pm
ODT Black Box, Aliwal Arts Centre
This double-bill performed by ODT Main Company & Park Na Hoon Dance Company was inspired by the research on human communication. Through artistic exchanges between the international choreographers, this project expresses the artists’ perspectives of cultures, country, love, life and themselves. “8 Elements” has unveiled the first residency outcome in Singapore, with the second phase of residency to be held in South Korea where both companies will perform at Seoul International Dance Festival and Gwangju Donggu Road Art Festival in October 2014. “8 Elements” by Park Na Hoon questions the existence of four elements instead of 8 on stage. “9th Element” by Dr Danny Tan presents an innovative choreography inspired by the concept of trigram, with stimulus between the art forms of film, design and dance, a creative movie-like output enhanced by the theatricality of the daily dialogues between couples.
