Company SIGA

Join Company SIGA, one of Korea’s hottest up-and-coming dance groups, for two UK premieres which showcase their spectacular, physically intense choreography.

In ZERO, the company uses high energy rhythmic movement to draw the audience into a captivating performance that examines the potential of what the body can do when pushed, and what it can create through dance.

Equilibrium, plays with the idea of balance through a cycle of erratic physicality and intense moments of stillness. The work is inspired by the chaos and restored order that humans experience throughout their lifetime.

Duration: 55mins (ZERO 30mins) | (Equilibrium 25mins)

About Company SIGA
Company SIGA began with the purpose of communicating and sympathising with our lives and people around us through our dancing. SIGA is an acronym which the company members coined using a Korean word, “시나브로[sinabro]”, and that means ‘little by little’.

The Company are pursuing a group work style that combines diverse movements and the artists own thoughts into one complete piece. In addition, they actively collaborate with artists outside of the Company who specialise in various genres to challenge new adventures for each piece of work and expand the spectrum of our dance “little by little”.

Keeping ’Speed’, ‘Basic’ and ‘Body’ as the main three keywords of Company SIGA’s group dance pieces, they aim to create natural pace and flow of people living there own humane lives.
