Choreography: Kuik Swee Boon and Kim Jae Duk

Pán “盤” is inspired by the allegorical Chinese myth of Pangu. Pangu is considered the creator god, the embodiment of the universe and the first living being on earth. For the work, Singaporean choreographer Kuik Swee Boon and Korean choreographer Kim Jae Duk teamed up to present the idea of “transculturation” as a convergence of cultures across geographical, historical, social and physical boundaries.
