“Now” and “Own” ― What we own. Five male dancers on the stage.
They express the story only about men.
N(own)ow discusses existential values of men through the story only about men told from the contemporary point of view, “now” and “own.” Instead of an elaborate stage and directing, the performance is immersed in the pure body, sound and language of the physical form, and constantly provokes sensual impulses from within in the absence of visual stimulation. N(own)ow was premiered in 2013 with a Korean dancer and choreographer Hyo-seung Ye playing a leading role and four male dancers from Les Ballets C. de La B., a dance company led by a renowned Belgian choreographer Alain Platel; the work was recreated with four new Korean dancers, well known for strong individual styles. Since then, the work has been highly recognized worldwide and invited to several dance festivals in European countries including France and Belgium.
