Korea National Contemporary Dance Company present two dramatic, punchy works from new-generation Korean talent: Mechanism by Jaeyoung Lee and Everything Falls Dramatic by Sung Im Her.


On a bright white stage six dancers build up an intense pattern of intricate synchronised movement. Shifting between the parts of a machine, members of a tribe, and solitary individuals, Mechanismplays with our understanding of what ‘human interaction’ means. The pulsating rhythmic score by MC Bluechan builds up the tension, growing in intensity to propel Mechanism’s club-like joyous finale. Mechanism is choreographed by leading choreographer Jaeyong Lee, a founder members of the Company SIGA dance collective.


When things fall, do they disappear? Is falling death?

Best known for her acclaimed works W.A.Y and Nutcrusher, Sung Im Her returns to The Place with Everything Falls Dramatic, a powerful and emotional meditation on our sense of fragility, resilience, loneliness and solidarity. Six dancers move sinuously through contrasting scenes of free and casual abandon, defiant energy or loving care. Everything Falls Dramatic features a dramatic set design and a richly layered soundscore by electro-acoustic duo HuskHusk.
