Mr. Sign centers on the subject of thoughts and ideas. Through a performance and a post-show dialogue, the production examines the individual’s place in a hierarchical society and enables students to gain an understanding and appreciation of contemporary dance as well as to reflect on whether communication is indeed important to humans.
Choreographer, Kim Jae Duk, draws upon a myriad of musical influences including the reworking of traditional Korean trot music, Indonesian gamelan, and parts of Tchaikovsky’s classic piece Swan Lake, to create an edgy, heart-pounding music score for Mr. Sign.
