Showcase & Talk: K-Arts PerformanceLive Performances / Events

29th January 2015


£Free


Showcase and Talk by K-Arts Dance Company

THU 29 JAN 4PM, Meeting House, Chapel
University of Sussex
Free Admission

The K-Arts Dance Company presents a performance including three different pieces of contemporary dance on Thursday, Jan. 29 4:00p.m. at the Meeting House of the University of Sussex. This showcase and talk provides a platform for scholars, practitioners and industry professionals to engage in new discourse around current cultural trends and landscape in Korean contemporary dance and choreography. K-Arts Dance Company is a leading student training company, which cements international status of Korea National University of Arts (K-Arts) through performances in places such as the western US, Washington DC, New York, Paris, Tokyo, Beijing, and Stockholm. To celebrate the 16th year of overseas performance, now it offers a unique melding of modern contemporary dance and Korean culture once again at this showcase followed by UK Premiere performance at London’s Laban theatre on Wednesday, January 28, 2015.

This showcase demonstrates three different pieces of contemporary dance with short talk by each piece’s choreographers. In Hommage (Bow) choreographed by Mi-sook Jeon, director of K-Arts’ school of dance, the intent and the beauty in the gesture of bowing in Eastern Culture are explored. The moments of connection we experience in life are reflected in illusions of the body in Reflection choreographed by Dong-kyu Kim. Hommage (Bow) and Reflection are new pieces for K-Arts Dance Company’s UK tour. The elegant No Comment looks at the way silence can speak volumes, with use of minimalism, skill and strength in the Korean tradition. No Comment, choreographed by Chang-ho Shin, was invited to the 79th Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, which is one of the first contemporary dance festivals in the U.S. and was imported from Tiroler Landestheater Innsbruck in Austria as one of official repertoire program.

PROGRAMME

Hommage (Bow)
This piece is using a general action “Bow” of the Eastern Culture. This action conveys the beauty of humanity. However, when people extremely want to show their courtesy through the “Bow”, it could make a trouble to others so that showing one’s manners is not just to bend its waist in precise angles. Hommage (Bow) criticizes the society that just shows one’s manners with only simple action.
- Choreographer: Mi-sook Jeon
- Music: Jae-duck Kim

Reflection
In our whole life, we don't recognize how many relationships have been touched between all kinds of connections. All the moments will be reflected as illusions of the body.
-Choreographer: Dong-kyu Kim

No Comment
Sometimes no comment gives even more true answer for reality. As if, calm pulse is rocking through the blood in the body, truth is also struggling for reality.
-Choreographer: Chang-ho Shin
-Music: Transglobal Underground 'Ali Mullah', Goran Bregovic 'Babylon', 'Elo Hi’

All Are Welcome.

Karen Nelson Contact Improvisation IntensiveProfessional Development

24th April 2015 - 25th April 2015


£130full/£100 Concession


Unimagiable~Flow~Resonance
This intensive traces the development of Contact Improvisation from before it was imaginable through the discovery of flow and onwards towards resonance. Each dancer's body is a map of this territory no matter when you joined the evolution. How do you experience your contribution to the form? Unimaginable: attending the sensations of falling and reflex, ranging from standing to moving with momentum both solo and with a partner. Flow: sustaining connection without losing the fresh taste of gravity and solo autonomy, discovering "the third thing". Resonance: Inner and outer spiralling, puzzles of the spine, expanding into space and using gravity's kind support to fly.

The JV2 International Bursary is available for International students who have been selected and offered a place on the JV2: Professional Development Certificate Course. The bursary is awarded on the basis of talent in order to show our dedication and commitment to providing unique and high quality training opportunities to talented individuals from overseas.

Only individuals from outside of the UK and EU are eligible for this bursary in order to assist students with the much higher industry standard International Fees for Postgraduate Training.

The JV2 International Bursary will automatically be deducted from the International Course Fees.

The Bursary is subject to selection and identified potential from the Artistic Director – Jasmin Vardimon and submission of a letter of application from the candidate student.

Please note there is a limit of one Bursary per year.

“We are pleased to be able to offer this Bursary to support International students coming to the UK for training and to work with the company. There are so many talented dancers that so often are unable to pursue their dreams due to financial circumstances. We hope this Bursary will assist students that would otherwise not be able to afford such an opportunity”
