Bereishit Dance Company is a groundbreaking Seoul-based company that approaches Korean traditional culture from a contemporary view. Judo and Balance & Imbalance, two of the company’s acclaimed works, are stunning examples of their style that merges the control and full-body excitement of break dance with sleek artistry and urban cool. Complete with live traditional pansori music, Bereishit Dance Company’s extravagant performance reaches the heights of athletic ability fused with beautiful choreography. Balance & Imbalance is an intensely physical work that features brilliant and fun interplay between five contemporary dancers, a pair of Korean traditional drummers, and one traditional pansori singer. Inspired by the martial art, Judo is a kinetic piece that embodies symbolic meaning of sports through harmonious rhythm and movement.
