Ambiguous Dance Company

Body Concert

Tanz im August | HAU Hebbel am Ufer (HAU1)

Production Details / Press Releases

With tempo, wit and virtuosity, “Body Concert” pulls together the many-faceted language of contemporary dance to deliver what it promises: a concert of bodies swathed in light, music and costumes. To music from Baroque to pop, this successful piece by the Korean Ambiguous Dance Company seeks the connection with its audience in a lavish celebration of movement. The choreographer Boram Kim founded the company in 2007 to research into the rhythm of things – and to explore his idea that human beings should live their lives as if they were dancing.

The Ambiguous Dance Company was founded in 2008 by the choreographer Boram Kim and the dancer Jang Kyeong-min. The name of the ensemble describes its undefinable and elusive dance style and aesthetic. Evading genres and preconceived ideas, the group expresses its concerns in movement and music. Instead of concentrating on an artistic statement or meaning, the Ambiguous Dance Company foregrounds human existence itself, which is particularly expressed in the physical expression of music and dance.
