Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

Don’t miss the world premiere of acclaimed choreographer Sung Im Her’s W.A.Y (re-work).

Uncompromisingly intense this performance sees four dancers use repetitive movement alongside an entrancing composition by Belgian musician Husk Husk, to explore the human need for individuality and the longing to be part of something bigger than oneself. The piece flows between a myriad of uncertainty and fear as well as joy, to illustrate this conflict in life.

Duration: 50mins

Post-Show Talk, Fri 17 Sep: 
Join the choreographer Sung Im Her after the show for a discussion about her work, chaired by choreographer and dance artist Jane Chan.
Approx. 20mins

About Sung Im Her
Sung Im Her's choreography strikes a balance between a stripped-down, almost formal aesthetic and a content-driven narrative style. She explores the essence of movements, unburdened by cultural or personal meaning, this leads to a minimalist, raw style of movement with strict, geometrical choreographies that are based on iteration. Her work has focused on controversial topics and she informs her views on these matters through rigorous research which she integrates into her choreography.
