PERFORMANCE

                                               MODERN TABLE, SOUTH KOREA   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. The company mainly performs contemporary dance and at the same time, stage musical, Pan-sori, rock and hiphop performances that transgress borders between genres. 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. Through their performances, mass pop culture is reinterpreted with academic techniques at a fast pace. The company‟s unique characteristics also come from endeavors that try to give contemporary forms to traditional Korean themes. Its major works include <Darkness PoomBa>, <Joker‟s Blues>, <Simchung Guyz>, <Awake>, <Clocker>, <Kick>, <Sinawi>, <SinawiSanjo>, <Smile>, <Sok-do (Velocity)>, <Smart Illumination> and <Meditation>.
