Choreographer Kim Jae-Duk and his group of dancer/musicians take hold of Korean traditional dance and hotwire it with thrilling live music inspired by ancient Korean song (“Poomba”) – a sense of reshaping the past to explore the future defines Modern Table’s powerful performance style.
Operating on the threshold of visibility, Disappearing Acts is a subtle reading of the body. Movements that disappear into the shadows or slip through unseen gaps in the curtains leave lingering traces on the retina.

“Israeli choreographer Yael Flexer has made a sense both of informality and of intimacy a trademark of her work. Less interested in showcasing the physical prowess of her dancers than in their ability to communicate in subtle, emotional ways, she sets her productions amid scenarios that tread a borderline between performance and the reality of the everyday.”
