“Dance of the blade”
In order to show their spiritual powers in their rituals, shamans dance on a straw cutter barefoot and channel the messages of spirits. Just imagining them dancing on the blades gives off chills. We hoped to create a performance where audiences can feel this thrill and excitement together. What else really matters other than this irresistible joy?
Stirring the thrill and excitement within the dancers, Catharsis aims to continue the movement research that Ambiguous Dance Company has been expressing in their works for the past 10 years.
Choreographer and dancer Bo-ram Kim offers an original take on music, which goes beyond the boundary of genres, and shows the sound before music and the body before dance in his choreographies.
His major works include <인간의 리듬>(2013), <실수>(2009), <피버>(2019), <관통시팔>(2018) and <쓰리볼레로 中 철저하게 처절하게>(2017). He was awarded the Best Performance by 2012 Critics' Choice. His <바디콘서트>, selected for PAMS Choice of Performing Arts Market Seoul 2016, was praised as “101 to contemporary dance and potentially a strong repertory of Korean Wave.” He is still receiving a lot of invitations both from Korea and internationally, including Sibiu International Theatre Festival in Romania, Eastern Europe's leading festival.

Founded in 2007 and led by artistic director Bo-ram Kim, Ambiguous Dance Company integrates their unique interpretation of music and distinct movements to bring dance closer to the public and let them forget 'contemporary dance is difficult to understand.'
As a non-commercial art company, they aim to express music and dance through 'body' and make it into most precise and truthful language. They focus on delivering 'something' inside the heart rather than concepts or genres of dance, or communicating a message or meaning. Ambiguous Dance Company aims to express music and dance through 'body,' believes it can be the most precise and truthful language, and tries to talk about the importance of the authentic essence.
