U.S. Debuts

The Annual Contemporary Dance Showcase is back with a bang! Continuing to offer the most outstanding cutting-edge dance, the Showcase for the first time expands to present a broader range from Japan and East Asian countries. Featured artists and companies from Japan include Makotocluv, founded by Makoto Enda (former member of Kim Itoh + Glorious Future) and known for their street performances; award-winning Kingyo, led by Yukio Suzuki who has choreographed for the Tokyo City Ballet and performed with Ko Murobushi’s Edge Co.; and Korean-Japanese soloist Yun Myung Fee, whose works draw from traditional Korean folk dance and Western dance techniques. The showcase will also feature the delicate yet emotional solo work by Yong-In Lee of UBIN Dance from Seoul, South Korea, who has performed extensively in Germany; and one of Taiwan’s most promising companies, Sun-Shier Dance Theatre, founded by two former dancers of Cloud Gate, Pi-Jung Wu and Hsiu-Ping Chang.
