Abyss is about a deep resentment. It looks quiet but waving, void but solid.

In Korean, the term ‘han‘ is a feeling of multiple layers of sorrow and sadness that represents the suffering of Korean lives from wars and colonialism. In order to relieve and resolve ‘han’, we try to talk, laugh and cry together, to confront the sadness and let it go, which is the deep purpose of this performance.

99 Art company believes that Korean traditional dance is not solid but more open to the present that adapts to changes in culture, history, and society. Abyss hope to be an artistic medium that connects you, the audience, to Korean culture, music, dance, and society.

SIFA presents Abyss as part of its efforts to spotlight up-and-coming young international choreographers who are making waves in their home countries and building a modern dance vocabulary rooted in tradition, to excite the Singapore dance scene.
