Kim Sung Hoon Dance Project
Pool begins with the question: What is my part in society?
There is a Korean saying that goes, “Stagnant water is bound to rot.” It tells us how people can fall behind and, just as water does, begin to stagnate, unless we continue to grow and change. Society molds us even when we are not trying to mold ourselves in a particular way. Here, we ask: Are we not all socially dead, despite being biologically alive, if the way we are molded is dictated by society? Can someone who has fallen behind and stagnated continue to exist in the ever flowing river of society with any personal agency?
Choreographer and dancer Sung-hoon Kim worked extensively in Korea and abroad as dancer in LDP(Korea) and Akram Khan Dance Company(UK), and as choreographer he values staging human's inherent movements the most rather than imposing his own movements.
His choreographies usually start with respecting each dancer's own movements and researching people's daily movements related to his themes, which are collaged into descriptions of feelings and coherent images/scenes.
His major works are <Black Comedy>(2009), <No Film>(2014), <Green Eye>(2017) and <Pool>(2019).

Founded in 2017, Kim Sung Hoon Dance Project is actively performing both in and outside of Korea. They are acclaimed for portraying humanist themes in a way that is not heavy or ambiguous and for creating realistic, direct and frank choreographies, which deliver the themes to a wider public in a more accessible way.
