A new dance fusion of hip-hop, breaking and traditional Korean dance is introduced into our physical vocabulary by an innovative young company from Korea.
In one hour, MyoSung takes us on a journey of 13 quick dance vignettes, intended to both entertain and educate. These are interrupted only by the occasional slideshow of photographic subjects ranging from inspirational handicapped athletes to the children of war.
These dancers have successfully taken a form of dance that originated in New York and placed their stamp on it. The grace and physical strength on display is incredibly exciting to watch. Unfortunately, this wasnt enough for choreographer Zino Seoul. The broad range of topics combined with the long pauses between each piece result in a slightly disjointed production. We can only hope that next time faith will be placed in the talent of the dancers rather than the flash of costumes that light up.
