Event Navigation

Founded in 2000 by choreographer Soon-ho Park, Bereishit Dance Company is a Seoul-based dance company that approaches Korean traditional culture from a contemporary view. In a rare U.S. performance, Bereishit made their Pillow debut in 2016. This Virtual Festival stream features the rigorous male duet BOW (that later evolved into the work CONTROL), 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.

Pre-Show Talk with Jacob’s Pillow Scholar-in-Residence Maura Keefe; Post-Show Talk with founder and choreographer Soon-ho Park.
