KNCDC's artistic director Kim Sungyong is back 
with a repertory work, Jungle
Jungle, a place where the instincts of the body and vitality 
fiercely collide with each other, 
vividly depicts movements and inner senses. 
Happenings unfolding on the stage symbolized as a jungle are seen from a perspective view. The scenes portraying the jungle, in which making and being made, the hidden and the revealed, stillness and motion as well as relaxation and tension coexist, are just like our everyday lives that we are struggling with. Jungle is an attempt to reflect on the movements observed on stage, making us contemplate the weight and depth of our existence, heavier than thought and deeper than seen. 
This work is based on the atypical movement research, “Process Init,” developed by the KNCDC’s artistic director Kim Sungyong. Through “Process Init,” dancers awaken their individual concrete senses and explore mutual responses, creating changes and expansions of movement. 
Jungle will feature music director Marihiko Hara, a Japanese sound artist and composer, lighting designer Lee Jungyoon bringing uniqueness to the work with a young and sophisticated sensibility and costume designer Bae Kyongsool who understands movement better than anyone else based on her experience of working with dancers. Scenographer You Jaehun, who has showcased creative stage art by integrating performance, architecture, technology and art while collaborating with choreographer Kim Sungyong for a long time, also participates in this project. 
Choreography Kim Sungyong 
Based on his philosophy that "Dance is a language that cannot be described in words," Kim Sungyong pursues dance as the "most truthful means of expression."  
Kim began dancing at the age of 15 and came to prominence as the youngest winner of the gold award at Dong-A Dance Competition at 20 in 1997, and as the first Korean to win an award at Japan International Ballet & Modern Dance Competition in Nagoya. Showcasing more than 100 choreographic works on prestigious domestic and international stages, he has received a number of awards while being recognized for his abilities and talent. Besides, serving as the director of the Daegu Contemporary Dance Company, he brought new wind to the organization as a young leader in his 40s. He was also considered to have contributed to improving the dancers' capabilities and developing the company through various attempts, demonstrating his own empathetic communication skills.
Kim Sungyong, who is making his own way as a dancer, choreographer and administrator, is expected to take Korean contemporary dance to a world-class standard through his young and creative leadership based on his extensive experience and know-how in the field.
