With soulful and meditative turns, ABYSS forms an ode to the depths of human emotion. Principles of Korean dance meld with the vocabulary of contemporary movement to form a unique vehicle for expressions of joy, anger, sorrow, and pleasure to mingle. A humble sailing boat becomes a metaphor for the soul, floating alone on the open, unpredictable sea of life, with its winds of upheaval, crests of joy and storms of powerful sorrow.

ABYSS invites you to experience the spectrum of human feeling: to laugh, weep and sing along with the dancers, and to move with the waves of the sea, to ultimately make space once again to sail in the boat that is inside of you.
