About Ambiguous Dance Company
Ambiguous Dance Company is founded in 2007 by choreographer Boram Kim and Kyeong-min Jang. The name of the company reflects the complex nature and style of their dance which, although belonging to the realm of contemporary dance, cannot be defined in straightforward terms. The group rose to prominence with their debut project Bolero (2008) which won the Best Performance Award at CJ Young Festival. Thereafter, they received numerous awards and prizes including the 2010 Best Performance Award at Critics#!
Choice for Body Concert, the Best Performance Award at the 2010 Seoul Performing Arts Festival (SPAF) and Audience Prize at the 17th Masdanza International Contemporary Dance Festival for Coexistence, two major prizes at the 2014 Yokohama Dance Collection for Mistake, and the Best Piece Award at the 2014
Korean Association of Dance Critics and Researchers Prize for Rhythm of Human. Ambiguous Dance Company pursues “communication through dance!; in other words, they seek to expand the artistic sphere of dance and move onto a more linguistic level through the process of concretisation. Their unique work thus involves an intense training in the practice of thoroughly analysing and symbolising music and movement. As the artistic director, Boram Kim focuses on embodying through the language of dance the multiple layers of sound that we must listen to carefully. He constantly explores and experiments with the company!s own linguistic possibilities, with the aim of presenting to the audience a completely new style of dance or the language of the body.
