Modern Table: Sok-do
A Festival of Korean Dance
EXCLUSIVE EVENT ~ Only performance on the west coast!
Combining traditional Korean dance with contemporary movement, nine virtuoso male dancers driven by the rhythmic sounds of live Ajaeng music (traditional Korean stringed instrument) display extraordinary physical prowess in a journey propelled by varying velocities. The company mainly performs contemporary dance and at the same time, stages musical, Pan-sori, and rock band performances that transgress the borders between genres.
Modern Table, led by choreographer Kim Jae-duk, is a young and up-and-coming performance company that aims to communicate with audience through interdisciplinary performances and projects. It has gathered much attention from the public and critics altogether for its unconventional ideas and experimental projects that break down the barrier between audience and stage, and between art forms.
