From Seoul, Bereishit Dance Company makes its Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival debut with a dance style that merges the control and full-body excitement of break dance with sleek artistry and urban cool.
The rigorous male duet BOW is inspired by the tradition of archery and explores the boundaries of sports and dance, while the intensely physical work Balance and Imbalance features brilliant and fun interplay between five contemporary dancers, a pair of Korean traditional drummers, and one traditional pansori singer.
