Biography

Bereshit Dance Company is a Seoul–based dance troupe approaching the Korean traditional culture from a contemporary view—keeping the fundamental value of things, as opposed to simply borrowing or transforming them. The balance and imbalance juxtaposes the dancers alongside drummers and singers of the traditional Korean storytelling genre, pansori. Sport meets dance in the rigorous male duet BOW, inspired by the Korean tradition of archery.
