Choreographer Kim Jae-Duk and his group of dancer/musicians take hold of Korean traditional dance and hotwire it with thrilling live music inspired by ancient Korean song (“Poomba”) – a sense of reshaping the past to explore the future defines Modern Table’s powerful performance style.

Tanz Connexions wrote ‘In a truly interdisciplinary work, the audience are taken on a strange and unexpected voyage through contemporary dance, traditional song and rock music. Executed seamlessly, Darkness Poomba is a work that constantly transforms our environment, each new world a critique of the one that has come before.’ Acclaimed across mainland Europe, these are their first British performances – they’ve been invited to London by The Place, London’s premier intimate dance space.

This is the closing performance of the K-Music 2016 festival. It runs for 60 minutes with no interval.
