Moon Looking Dog

MOON-LOOKING DOG / 1999

Artistic direction Hong Sungyop

“Moon-Looking Dog”, a title full of originality for a choreography full of humour. This work, based on improvisation, seeks to capture the fundamental movement of “Ki” (lifeforce). On the stage, a mirror, a reflection of what is within. Above the mirror, a clock, symbolising the wish of everyone to seek the centre of themselves. An introspective quest where the dancers discover their interior existence in order to become more aware of their bodies and the space that surrounds them.

Completing his master’s degree in dance while dancing only 2 years, he was awarded the Grand Prize at « Dong-A Dance Compatition », the most prestigious in its kind. Also, he won the best dancer award at « Korea Dance Festival » in 1986. He has joined the Universal Ballet Company for three  years since 1990. In 1993, he founded « Dance Theatre On » and has been working as an artistic director and a choreographer as well as a dancer.
