Structured like a concert, this 10-act performance aims to transcend the limits of human body and dance, evoking deep emotions in the audience. Through the power of dance and music, it takes us on a journey to a new destination.
The exuberant opening act creates an electric atmosphere, while the dynamic and engaging performance of the dancers towards the end leaves the audience captivated, suggesting new meanings and values of dance.
Since its debut in Seoul’s Arko Arts Theater in 2010, Body Concert has become one of the most frequently staged programmes, and has been described as an ideal introduction to contemporary dance for the general public. It has also received critical acclaim, winning the 2010 Best Performance Award at Critics’ Choice. Following its successful international tour, the show has confirmed its potential for global appeal.

Born in Korea, Boram Kim entered into the field of contemporary dance unconventionally. Working as a back-up dancer for 10 years, he began to wonder about how dance speaks to the audience, and with passion and ambition, he began to develop his own choreography.
Kim established his own dance company called “Ambiguous Dance Company” in 2007. To Kim, creating dance works flushes out uncertainties engrained within him. In the process of creating, stories and answers to these uncertainties are existentially and inherently revealed. Kim first begins this process by choosing music with which to work. Interpreting the music, movements begin to take form in his mind, intertwining with melodies and rhythms, like a shuttle weaving across a loom.

Ambiguous Dance Company
Ambiguous Dance Company was founded by choreographer Boram Kim and dancer KyeongMin Jang in 2008. The name of the group describes the “undefinable and ambiguous” characteristics of their dance style. Escaping from genres and preconceptions, the group expresses what is in their hearts through bodily movement and music. Rather than focusing on delivering an artistic message or meaning, they intend to convey the true nature and purity of humanity, believing that the bodily expression of music and dance form the most accurate and truest language.
